"Manoj was employed by me to assist in the design and build of a start up JV company. He brought a real insight into the leading edge of technical and business model innovation that was vital in us designing a company that could stand out in its market. He worked as a mentor, educator and change leader in our technical and marketing teams, and was able to both challenge and support developments. I would highly recommend him to any company needing to get or stay ahead in its market."

Aran Joyce: Digital Marketing Consultant ICO Advisor.

"I have been fortunate enough to attend a few of Manoj's talks, events and workshops.

His style is interactive, engaging and fun.
His talk on "Persuasive Design" is a good example. He had the audience very engaged, laughing and excited with his "Moo" triggers.

He is knowledgeable, experienced and brings a wealth of practical know-how.
He demonstrated some fantastic techniques. His events are almost always full.

He creates an "Aha" moment in every event. The audience always gets some very useful actionable takeaways.

If you have the chance to attend one of his talks, take it and go.
An event not to be missed.

If you are organising an event, make sure to include him on your list of speakers. His talks are always very interesting.
