Individual-Speakers-Quote

Rohit Talwar is a revelation. Why is he not on our television screens every night? He is easily one of the most thought provoking presenters I have seen and authors that I have read. He challenges everything that we assume about technology and work, and has an incredible ability to draw non-intuitive insights from what is happening now and what might happen in the future. Rohit kindly agreed to be a keynote speaker at our annual fintech event. The feedback was universally positive. Many of our guests said that they went home and tore up their assumptions and IT strategies, and started again. What more can you ask for?
