San Francisco technology reviewer

Kevin Roberts was arguably more entertaining and more informative than any other speaker, speaking about any other subject, anywhere. That is saying a lot, but during the hour of his speech, there was nowhere else in the world that I would have rather been than in his audience.'

WWD Media Worldwide

'You rocked the house! Thank you for being such a spectacular part of this year's WWD/DNR CEO Summit. The take away value of your presentation was exceptional and the inspiration powerful. Each executive in attendance was truly driven to reconsider the nature and DNA of their brands. I'd consider that a huge win.'
