What can I say other than Tony Chapman is a brilliant host and MC. Great energy AND he elevated our conference in not one but many ways. He takes the time to know what the conference is about and then sets the context each day with a spot on keynote for the audience. I especially appreciate how he deftly conducts the interview/Q&A portion with our keynotes – drawing out new insights and revelations from them we wouldn’t have heard otherwise. We ended each day with a terrific summary of key takeaways that Tony framed in concise memorable bites. Finally, he is simply wonderful to work with and a generous human being. We’re looking forward to having him back.
