Some recent love

  • “Captured everyone from the first second.”

    “Henry opened the conference and captured everyone from the first second with sharp, on-point and easily convertible insights into innovation and day-to-day changes in teams and organizations. The feedback was absolutely top across all delegates and I can highly recommend Henry for future conferences.”

  • “Henry was an outstanding speaker.”

    “Henry was an outstanding speaker. He presented at two sessions and received high marks from all in attendance. Representative comments included: 'Very succinct. My favorite breakout session.', 'One of the most interesting breakouts of the 20 sessions I attended.' and 'Extremely interesting. Takeaways really resonated.'”

I'd have no hesitation in booking Henry as a speaker, and I look forward to working with him and the TrendWatching team in the future.”
