After I saw the audience reaction to your powerful presentation at the World Chambers Congress in Istanbul I knew you had to be a keynote at our Annual Conference. My instincts were right. For both the WCC and the American Chamber of Commerce Executives crowds -- both over 1,000 -- you provided the perfect combination of clear analysis of current dynamics and fascinating insights about the future
