Barton’s Digital Disruptor keynote was an impressive presentation of relevant knowledge and digital trends. His enthusiasm and energy are contagious, and he is always capable of catching and keeping the audience’s attention
Katherine Kostereva, CEO of Creatio
There are presentations and then there are moments of discovery and inspiration like we had during your Metaverse presentation.
In an audience of baby boomers, Gen X, Millennials, and a few scattered Gen Zs, you grabbed their attention and never lost it. The emotional impact of your presentation was unlike anything I have seen. Even at the end, rarely do we experience such enthusiasm during the Q&A session that follows a presentation. It was as if each attendee saw a picture of their future in the Metaverse and were reacting in awe, concern, excitement, and a few “Oh My God” moments
Ronald K. Wills, President of the National Association of Business Owners & Entrepreneurs (NABOE)
