– Managing Consultant, ICMI Speakers & Entertainers
Craig spoke for 50 minutes as part of a two day workshop, which people had paid $3300. After Craig left, I asked the participants who felt they had got their money’s worth for the whole workshop just from Craig’s contribution, and the result was unanimous. Every single person in the room put their hand up … everyone in the workshop felt that they had got more than $3300 worth of value from listening to Craig for 50 minutes. If you are holding an event where technology and the future are critical components to what you are trying to achieve, do whatever you need to do to get Craig along.
