“We engaged William McKnight as the keynote speaker for two IBM roadshows, the Discovery Days and Break Free Tours. William is one of the world’s leading information management thought leaders and educators and it’s easy to see why. He knows the technology and business audience well and his content was very relevant to their needs. He was able to bring in new ideas and concepts and demonstrate the relevancy by bridging from what the audience already knew. His appeal was to deliver business-first. I, and the audiences, will not forget many of his more prominent quotes. His presentation style is very engaging.
