TESTIMONIALS

Fascinating! You should also write books on presenting technology topics to non-technology people. It’s a skill very few technologists have."
Walt Disney Studios

“Mike was a pleasure to work with. His presentation was perfectly pitched reflecting his research prior to the event to tailor his presentation to our audience and he also took the time to meet with some of them prior to the presentation. We would highly recommend Mike to anyone interested and would love to work with him again."
Roche Products Pty Limited

“I would highly recommend Mike Walsh to any company who wants to get a clearer understanding of not what might be, but what is very likely to be.”
Fujifilm Australia

“Mike is highly inquisitive and original, not only in his thinking but also in his presentation, taking complex issues and turning them into simple and digestible themes. Mike is very valuable at helping challenge whatever your conventional wisdom is, and in setting out a clear set of views on how things might shape in months and years to come. I recommend him highly."
