Testimonials 3

  • “Some futurists are good storytellers with plenty of charisma but no ‘wisdom’ or experience and others have loads of experience but no charisma.  You demonstrated both.”

    Gary Battaglia

    Pitney Bowes

  • “Michael presents as though he is talking with you, versus at you.  He’s someone you would love to be seated next to at any event!”

    Nicole Freeman

    General Electric

  • “Michael’s practical look into the future was invaluable as it addressed shifting global demographics, emerging economies, technology and the future of the supply chain. Not only did he lead a discussion on challenges but also on opportunities. He laid a strong foundation for planning for the future. He is indeed a “practical futurist.””
