  • The presentation was very good, Henry is a great performer. Henry clearly has great knowledge and gets to the heart of the matter. He knows how to keep the attention of the public throughout the entire presentation. He is capable of translating how global trends can be put into practical use. The interaction with the public is good. Henry is a very pleasant speaker. After his own presentation he was also involved in the rest of the program. We are certainly going to recommend him to others.

  • Henry spoke at our Qubit Bright Sparks event, which is all about providing the tools to ecommerce businesses to think beyond the traditional tactics of selling, through pairing the brightest thought leaders and technological innovators with industry experts and case studies from our most pioneering clients. We always have a very demanding audience of experienced digital marketers and heads of ecommerce in the room, and the feedback we had on Henry's talk was excellent. They found it inspirational and practical, and enjoyed seeing how they can learn and adapt trends for their own businesses.
