“People buy from who they trust. People trust who they converse with. Chris breathes new life into client conversations that are stuck in lockdown. He nailed it.”
“Enthralling and enlightening. One of the most interesting and thought-provoking keynotes that we make available to our most important global clients.”
“Outstanding. Rich. Relevant. Unique. Chris gives us a profound sense of 'why'.”

'We are being flooded with team messages saying how amazing the talk was so wanted to share that and again say a massive THANK YOU.”
“At a recent event launching the International Business Festival, Chris Kutarna gave a fascinating presentation on the ‘Future’. Such a broad concept would be difficult to explore over the course of several books, but Chris managed to do so in a matter of 15 minutes and in a way which was both enthralling and enlightening. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris as a speaker and look forward to welcoming him as one of the hosts of our Festival main stage this June.”
Chairman, The Riverside Group
“I attend and speak in a lot of conferences. I can say that yours was one of the most interesting and thought-provoking keynotes that I’ve seen recently. I personally have worked on the megatrends, and the way you presented takes people out of their comfort zone.”

“A big thank you for the quality of your presentation: it was very much appreciated by our European Team and it gave us a new way of thinking about our past and about our future. In response to your session, one of my staff wrote me, “I always feel very privileged to work for innovative leaders, who like to share different views and are helping us to think through an uncertain world.” Thank you for making us look great!!”

“The most important Zoom call I’ve been on since this all started.”
Middle Eastern government official
“It is 1 in the morning and I should be heading to bed, but I just wanna share this: In a review of our remote working in my company yesterday I went on a long and controversial rant on how much I miss the human factor in meetings after everything was moved online, how much I miss meeting people that I didn’t plan to meet (which also has made me feel that these couple of months have been one big echo chamber) and that I hadn’t been in one meeting that had really “lifted me”. Most online meetings had been efficient; none have been effective. Tonight that changed. So grateful!”
Executive Vice President, DNB Bank ASA
