He was a dynamic and engaging speaker, offering constructive critique with grace and responding to questions with patience."

any other conference talk ever. I know I'm going to remember more too."

"Karl is the most passionate person I have ever met. Karl's passion for life and creativity are evident in every interaction with him. Because of this I had the opportunity to have Karl speak at a company meeting while I as at GISinc and it was one of the highlights of the 3 day offsite. His energy, message and level of engagement is contagious, and will certainly inspire the repressed creativity in us all."

His knowledge and the way he shares it makes the learning process a pleasant and enjoyable experience.
