What people say…

Nick’s presentations are extremely captivating and eye-opening. A good balance of macro trends as well as technical details. Nick is able to navigate the conversation with where the audience want to take it. The hours fly by as I gained a tremendous amount of knowledge to take back to my team as we plan our AI strategy.

Mikko Tamminen

Chairman & CEO , Quantanite

A most sobering and interesting talk from Nick Ayton at the Chairman’s Network event. An excellent introduction into what is really happening, with more about governments and les about job losses.

Rowan Jackson

Founder & Chairman, Promising Outcomes

Nick is a true visionary and has great insight with all things Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies. If anyone can lead the way for CEOs it is definately Nick. His knowledge and experience in the digital space brings huge amounts of innovation and creativity to the table, he sees the big picture very quickly and can join the dots quickly too. I can recommend Nick to any organisation looking for assistance in embracing and understanding Blockchain.
