Audience reviews:

  • I have worked closely with Howard Green on the presentation of "Canada's Outstanding CEO of the Year" and 'Canada's Top 40 under 40." As MC of these events, he was most engaging and connected strongly with the audience. He was always well prepared, easy to work with and unflappable. He made it look easy and our events were all the better for his contribution.
