Testimonials

Nick, your presentation was outstanding. This is the third year we have run this and it is by far the most engaging and entertaining presentation I have seen so far by a long way. It was a tough gig doing the graveyard shift. You somehow embraced that and you had the floor laughing out loud and fully engaged in your talk. Your presentation was well researched, thought provoking, relevant, absolutely entertaining, and very professional.

Gary Sherwood Partner, RSM Australia

We were delighted with Nick’s speech on future trends. He lights up a room with his energetic and engaging style. He even has the audience engaging with each other in a fun way. He had us listening, learning, laughing and (almost) crying. We could not be happier with our choice.

Brad Newton VP, Asia Pacific - Docusign, Inc

Nick spoke on “AI and the Future” at our events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. His performance was energetic, funny and insightful. Great stories and great engagement with the audience. Unlike other speakers, he gets the audience to engage with each other - but in an easy and enjoyable way. We have had terrific feedback.

Rob Currie Chief Business Director, WPP Group

Nick came on and immediately lifted the energy in the room. His presentation was a mixture of entertainment and information- much of it from his own personal stories. The feedback has been great. Happy to recommend Nick

Fast-paced, informative and witty. Nick is easy to work with and a real crowd-pleaser.

Amanda Tait Membership Director, Australian Institute of Company Directors

Nick is a “P” speaker – powerful, persuasive, on-point and purposeful. He was hand picked to address a group of 200 innovators, entrepreneurs and industry executives at SWITCH Festival 2015. If you are lucky enough to hear Nick speak, you had better be a multi-tasker, as I have never witnessed a room full of people more engaged and in uproars at Nick’s wit and storytelling and at the same time furiously capturing the insights that Nick imparted. He is the complete ‘Package’.

Catherine Stace Co-Founder SWITCH Festival

He had the audience in various states of concern, laughter and light bulb moments. Incredibly charismatic.

Razwina Raiham Producer, Gamechangers Conference

Nick gave the futurist's presentation at our conference. He was everything you want in a keynote speaker - informative, accessible and, importantly, entertaining. Highly recommended.
