Testimonials

“Mike Richardson rocked! As the keynote speaker at our Buenos Aires all-city, he commanded the room with his keynote stagecraft and presence, inspiring our 300 members, guests and chairs to be more agile in an increasingly VUCA world (Volatility, Complexity, Uncertainty, Ambiguity). His topic might be one of the most important and timely we have ever had and he does a great job making the complex simple, with a uniquely informing and entertaining mixture of stories, examples and frameworks. I strongly recommend him for any keynote event.”

Outstanding! Mike’s speaking style, energy and content mobilized our group to shift up a gear in mastering their agility challenge.
Mike’s insight, process and tools are helping us conquer the paradoxical balance between strategy & operations, short term & long term and leadership & management – a balance which can be so elusive with the resource constraints and demands of a small, engineering intensive business such as ours. Our focus has sharpened on a clearer path and we are increasingly able to sustain a strategy process as a key contributor to our success.
