It is with great pleasure that I recommend Mitch Thrower as a speaker. Mr. Thrower spoke at the CONNECT CEO Strategy Forum program on February 1, 2008. The CEO Strategy Forum is an exclusive community of CEOs from technology and life sciences companies focused solely on
developing and sharing strategies for growth and success. Signature events take the form of monthly breakfast meetings that comprise a presentation by a carefully selected industry thought leader or successful entrepreneur and a roundtable discussion with industry peers.
Mitch spoke to his peers on what CEOs today are facing in a Web 2.0/Web 3.0 world, where new technology and a new social culture are creating a new mindset and challenge. In addition, he shared the successes and pitfalls of expanding his company into new territories during the aftermath of 9/11. His fresh and approachable style lent itself well to the roundtable discussion, and stimulated a lively and interactive conversation among the group. The attendees felt his advice was solid and practical and found real value in the dialogue it created. One member of the organization has been quoted as saying, "This was the best forum yet, and I've been to the last three," which I feel is a testament to Mitch's speaking style. In addition, the attendees found the most value in the real world experiences he so generously shared with them.
I strongly recommend him and I'm sure that you'll be more than satisfied with his performance as a speaker and leader.
