  • Testimonials

    Don't just take his word for it.

    SVP, HPE

    This is a tough recommendation to write, because it's going to come off sounding like a paid advertisement - but it simply reflects the incredible talent and experience that Theo brings to the table.

    Conference Manager, IDC

    His assessment by the audience was best among all the rest of speakers. He grabs attention of delegates with highly professional content, combined with humor great energy and outstanding presentation skills.

    Director, Pegasystems

    Theo is a man on a mission, he knows his stuff inside out and when he opens his mouth, you really ought to sit up and listen.

    MD, Berkeley PR

    Theo is one of the smartest people I have had the pleasure ofworking with. He deeply understands technology but more importantly how it can impact the lives of business and people.

    MD, Deloitte Digital

    His opinions on industry trends and market activity are well respected & despised at the same time, making him a true industry influencer.

    CEO, Elements.Cloud

    He challenges the status quo and therefore plays a vital role in driving innovation and thought leadership in the industry.

    CTO, Pegasystems

    I had more creative ideas from Theo in 6 months than I have had in 6 years from most people. Working with Theo can be a white knuckle ride, fast, exhillerating and fun.

    Director, Wipro Digital

    He can process a few bits of information, do the necessary research, get a vision of a big picture and quickly form a pretty strong opinion of his own. And what's even better, that opinion is nursed in an open mind and is not hard-coded.
