It is refreshing to have had the pleasure to present Todd De Voe as our Keynote Speaker. We have had Todd give two keynote speeches. He is a dynamic speaker and draws in the room. We have had repeated requests to have him present to our group again.

Todd brings out his experience as an accomplished first responder, emergency manager, and educator in his presentations. On a 1 to 10 scale, this keynote was a resounding 10! He is a very charismatic presenter who held everyone’s attention while he brought very serious topics to us in an understanding way. It was wonderful how he incorporated humor to present such a powerful, message. The keynote was presented in a dynamic, fast pace, with lots of laughs. The business continuity professionals enjoyed themselves as they learned. I highly recommend Todd as a keynote without reservations at your event.
