“Geoff Colvin played an integral role in our FSI Forum and was a key contributor to making the event a success. He was a true professional and a pleasure to work with. In addition, he put the presenters at ease with his calm and confident manner, and he was quick on his feet when improvising questions or using poll everywhere technology. We also appreciated how flexible he was when we asked him to step in at the last moment to introduce the banking speaker and moderate Q&A.   We could not have asked for a better moderator and were thrilled he could join us.”

“This was undoubtedly the best executive conference we’ve held in our 20 plus years of hosting this event. While venue was great, it’s all about the content. Your talk was particularly compelling since the empathy/humanity theme was something that our guests had not really contemplated, and as such, served as “fresh” content for them to consider. Your style in delivering was also superb.”
-Executive Vice President, Hartford Steam Boiler

“What a master! I was a bit worried when we got word that he wouldn’t be using any slides but everybody loved him. And for the panel, he conducted the “interviews” and wove it all together seamlessly. He had 4 people he had never met but got their best thinking and made it relate to the audience. We were all very impressed.”

You were able to lead our speakers into valuable dialogues about their experiences working with Watson and the possibilities of cognitive computing. I know our audience benefited from your expertise, and several attendees commented specifically to me on these thought-provoking sessions.”
