Rave Reviews

Scott Klososky
"Scott was the keynote speaker to a group of small business owners and executives at our 2011 executive retreat. His timeslot was not ideal, after an afternoon of golf, cocktails and dinner! He did a superb job of modifying his message to create interest, captivate their imagination while educating our group on the trends in social technology. As a result of this event, we engaged Scott for a Social Technology Boot Camp that provided attendees with a 'deep-dive' into his world. Both events exceeded our expectation and were right on target. Scott’s delivery style has just the right combination of style, personality and the subjects covered were immediately applicable! We will likely engage Scott again in the future!"
