John is dynamite!

His business experience combined with his creative energy kept an audience of 250 V & C-level executives on the edges of their seat at our recent Smarter Services Symposium. Beyond John’s stage presence, John carries himself with a quiet confidence; which he should. His confidence is a result of his deep experience having helped launch Amazon on its path to market leadership. I strongly recommend organizations considering embarking on a Digital Transformation to engage with John. He is a true visionary!!
