My Largest Audience
Number of Keynotes
Karl's ability to connect emotionally with his audience is incredible.
I had the pleasure of attending two of Karl's keynotes and they were a breath of fresh air. Through Karl's ability to combine humor and simplifying complex topics, I was able to learn more than I ever had at any keynote. I can't wait for the next.
