"Max is a professional speaker with humor, the ability to engage the audience and a unique story. Despite his young age, he oozes with experience and confidence on stage. Max grabs the audience from the start and shares experiences and knowledge in an exciting way. Max is one of the speakers who can take any hall and arouse curiosity and dedication with his enthusiasm. We were so lucky to have Max as the closing speaker at the CRE8 CONFERENCE and got the energy-filled finish we needed. Set aside time for questions after the lecture, as Max has a unique ability to communicate with the audience while the auditorium is guaranteed to have many questions. Max showed great willingness to cooperate and took the time to understand our conference concept, who the audience was, and adapted the lecture to match what we wanted. I highly recommend Max."

Max delivers an incredibly interesting take on how Millenials think, and how companies can best leverage their potential. The lecture was held in an extremely energetic manner, and also with a good dose of humor. This allows him to capture the interest of the entire audience, while also drawing an incredible number of interesting views on the topic he was talking about. Really recommended!"
