  • “Fantastic opening keynote. Alex’s presentation was entertaining, educational and timely for our industry. In addition to the content, his fast-paced, colloquial, dynamic delivery style is nothing like what the crowd is used to, and very much appreciated by the audience (and it made us look good for broadening the minds of our attendees)!”
