“Thought Alex Hunter delivered an amazing, insightful & witty speech. Would love to hear him again, thoroughly enjoyed it!”Wella

“Very engaging. His personable style meant that the subject matter was easily absorbed and interest was held throughout.” – News International

“Alex’s presentation was entertaining, educational and timely for our industry. In addition to the content, his fast-paced, colloquial, dynamic delivery style is nothing like what the crowd is used to, and very much appreciated by the audience (and it made us look good for broadening the minds of our attendees!). He took the time to look at examples that made sense to our audience, from their industry, which was very much appreciated. Fantastic opening keynote.”IIR

“Alex was excellent and a huge hit with our audiences”
