It's quite rare to come across a personality like Mike's. He approached me to be part of the Digital Swarm events, I've participated twice and am a fan since. In my interactions with Mike, I have been particularly impressed by his passion for all things entrepreneurship and digital, his knowledge and skills in this space as well as his ability to present complex topics effortlessly (he is a superb speaker). Also check out his book, highly recommended. Last, but not least, Mike is a really great guy to be around and have a beer with, or simply bounce new ideas around.

‘It is with great pleasure that I recommend Mike Saunders to be a keynote speaker at any of your event/s. Mike has spoken at our events, inclusive of our 2018 Annual Convention and Property Exhibition which garners close to 1400 delegates in attendance. The delegates were positively captivated with his vast array of knowledge about his subject matter and he is concise, vibrant and interesting and keep his audiences enthralled. I would recommend him to speak at any of your events without reservation’
