Kevin has a unique ability to connect with both technical and non-technical groups, which makes him a perfect fit for almost any event, especially those audiences that run the full gamut of technical ability. Die-hard techies will enjoy 'geeking out' with Kevin, and everyone else will still be fascinated and perhaps a little frightened by what they learn. Our attendees could not have been more pleased with Kevin and his 'Art of Deception' keynote.'
