”I need to write to recommend Thomas, who did one of the most inspiring talks about our ‘futures’. He was vibrant, engaged, and very inspiring. I took notes upon notes – and has subsequently quoted Thomas many times. For business development and not least for inspiration for by my own company and others. Thanks, Thomas, for your inspiration – and your brilliant talk.”

Tine Weppler – board member, CEO, Digital transformation project

”I really recommend Thomas as speaker and inspirator – he is a lively, knowledgeable, and inspiring speaker, who very much managed to catch the audience’s attention at our annual ‘Professional Summer Event’ in August, where more than 200 employees were gathered at Kobæk Strand. Simply the fact that he on a Friday afternoon (!) could make people want an extension of his talk, speaks for itself! He had a cool blend of substance, provocation, and personality in his talk – which was spot on! The title of his talk was ‘Journey into the Future – Megatrends and Their Consequences on Competences and Education’.”

Anders Kold, director of further education, Business Academy Sjælland 

”Thomas is an incredible energetic and exciting person, who will deliver great strategic inspiration and food for thought when you listen to his observations on the future of our society. I can highly recommend Thomas as a powerful motivational speaker, if you want to move, challenge and motivate you audience on how our future could look, and how you need to find yourself within that scope”

Martin Troller, Managing Director Tech Data (Ranked 83 – Fortune 500)
