David Cameron, Prime Minister, G8 Innovation Conference
David was a great speaker - he was prepared, authoritative and adaptable to change. He was also very easy to work with.
The feedback we received about your plenary was amazing. Everybody is raving to me about your plenary. It was fantastic!
If you want to get a steer on the future you can do worse than look to Wired UK editor David Rowan. He’s a man who’s taken William Gibson’s quote – “the future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed yet” – to heart, and thus spends his time hunting for glimpses of tomorrow today. Toluna brought him along to their 10th birthday celebration/conference, held yesterday on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, to chart a possible future for the research industry. The view from both the speaker and the venue was dizzying.
The audience was just amazed and we received a huge amount of positive feedbacks. We hope to deal with you again in the near future.
Your presentation was superb. We might need you for other speaking opportunities in the near future.
You were the absolute star of the event. Clients feedback on the event was very positive!
