ICPEN – Team Canada

On behalf of the 2020-2021 ICPEN Canadian Presidency, ICPEN – Team Canada would like to thank you for being our Keynote Speaker during our ICPEN Conference which was held on June 23 and 24, 2021. Your generous contribution and your thoughtful intervention added a great value to the fascinating discussions and deliberations brought to the table by a collection of global consumer protection enforcers and international experts from all over the world. I do believe that the variety of topics and diversity of views would not have been possible without the involvement of dedicated and passionate persons like you who worked so hard to prepare, coordinate and intervene during important session of our Conference. The Conference provided to the international audience, which intervened in such great numbers, the occasion to further collaborate through the development of new tools, expert mindsets and targeted strategies. I am convinced that your ideas and insights will be taken into serious consideration as we contemplate the post-pandemic ICPEN events and projects. Thank you again for contributing to this important international event and I am looking forward to working with you in future ICPEN events. Be safe and be well.

Josephine A.L. Palumbo
ICPEN President

I enjoyed your keynote speech and it certainly generated new thinking on my part.

RacePoint Global (Hong Kong Business Awards)

Terence Mauri is a great speaker because he's a great listener. From the moment we engaged him, Terence went out of his way to understand our event, our audiences, the core messages we wanted to get across, and the cultural context in which they would be delivered. From there he was able to craft a unique keynote that engaged, inspired and entertained our audience (several hundred of Hong Kong's top business leaders). Terence was a joy to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend him for any corporate speaking engagements in future.


Terence Mauri is 'an influential and outspoken expert on the future of leadership.

Excellent keynote speech.

Simon Raft
Insight Partners

Terence was incredibly impactful, delivering the closing keynote at our Ctrl + Alt + Del: Re-invent Finance Roundtable event. He not only understands the challenges faced by the most senior leaders at large, global organisations, but also provides actionable ways to change mindsets and turn challenge into opportunity. His keynote was pitch perfect; with the ideal mix of humour, research, insights and storytelling to capture the attention and minds of the audience. Thoroughly enjoyable and insightful!

Elizabeth van den Berg
Vice President
International Publishing Guild

Terence made an outstanding contribution to the 2017 Independent Publisher's Guild conference. As a keynote speaker he pitched his presentation at exactly the right level incorporating a good mix of inspiration and entrepreneurial education. He had done his homework and his pertinent examples and illuminating exercises kept his audience interested throughout. I felt we left the auditorium with some key tips, excited to take a fresh look at our businesses.


Terence, thank you for an inspiring talk and sharing with us a peek into the future. Great keynote and thanks for helping us launch Facebook 'Hack The Future'.
