"Having Andrew Keen speak is like launching a very knowledgeable exocet missile into the middle of the conversation, the convention and the room - in a good way. No-one is as laser-guided as he is and it always makes for excitement"
— Julia Hobsbawm, founder, www.namesnotnumbers.com
“Andrew is a no nonsense, crap cutting provocateur. As a speaker, he offers whip smart, no-shit insights into what technology might actually mean.”
— Ella Weston, Director of WPPStream the WPP(un)conference
"Andrew Keen is one of the most fascinating speakers I had during my 7 year tenure as master curator of Innotribe at Sibos. I have seen him perform at other prime events like Techonomy and The Drucker Forum. As a true contrarian, he debunks myths and beliefs about the Internet and technology hypes, challenges conventional thinking, and brings back the conversation to universal values of humanity. His delivery is passionate, deeply researched, and illustrated with poignant visuals and metaphors. His stage energy is contagious.”
— Peter Vander Auwera, Co-Founder Innotribe
"Andrew Keen is not only one of the world’s most influential thinkers about the social and economic impact of digital technology, but he’s also one of its most articulate and passionate public speakers. His speeches at DLD have always been delightfully smart, humorous and provocative and we look forward to collaborating with him again in the future.”
— Steffi Czerny, Managing Director, DLD Media
"The Silicon Valley success stories have created much hype and euphoria around digital technology. Hence it is important to hear critical voices with alternative perspectives. Andrew Keen is a refreshing "competent rebel" with roots not only in Silicon Valley but also in a profound liberal arts education."
— Richard Straub, President and Founder of the Global Peter Drucker Forum
"Andrew Keen spoke in the Intelligence Squared debate “Be afraid, be very afraid: the robots are coming and they will destroy our livelihoods”. He gave a consummate opening speech, setting out his arguments with clarity and a punchy delivery. In the ensuing discussion between the panellists he was sharp-witted and often extremely funny. He really made the debate. We have booked him again for a forthcoming digital summit and intend to keep him on our radar for the future.”
