NBN Co, Council and the business community very much appreciated you volunteering your time, insights and passion. Your preparation, delivery tailored to the business audience, and your easy and engaging approach took us all on a journey that, for an early morning breakfast forum, was both entertaining and insightful. I’d not hesitate in seeking your services again, and would recommend you to anyone who asks – or doesn’t. I look forward working with you again in the future." – nbn co

"John just demystifies the AI ‘noise’ every business owner now finds themselves in! Should we, shouldn’t we – are we missing out? He debunks the narrative, both explaining the pitfalls and championing the opportunities in a simple, yet entertaining way. His vast experience in the field shines through and adds real substance to each and every point he makes. The audience was engaged throughout and he had difficulty getting away at the end amid a flurry of questions! He will be back for sure and everyone needs a John when faced with ‘noise’!" – Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)

AiLab made it fun and interactive and the level of engagement from everyone was brilliant, which is down to John and his delivery style which is very engaging!

Students stayed longer than the lesson-hour to engage in further conversations on the topic, so the interest and value generated goes well beyond the hour spent with us." – Auckland University of Technology (Business School)
