"A long time ago, people worked for the same boss their whole lives. Did the same job. Gradually that changed and people started changing jobs. In this day and age, people not only have to change jobs, they also have to change professions. Many occupations will disappear, many companies will cease to exist. All as a result of the increasing technology. Christian can help companies and people take advantage of increasing technology and turn a threat into a challenge. After all, every change offers infinite opportunities' - Vanad Group

The cooperation with Christian Kromme has been very professional, meaningful, involved and unique.

The reactions after the session were very positive. After the session, Christian took plenty of time to answer questions from visitors.

I was very impressed by Christian, right from the first time we spoke by phone, subsequent dialogue, and final presentation. Christian was remarkably quick in understanding our needs and customizing his talk accordingly. The end result could not have been more on point, which was amazing considering how little time we had and how little he was briefed
His knowledge of exponential growth concepts coupled with his awareness of what is happening in various markets is remarkable and the end result is that Christian's presentation was a thought provoking wake-up call and an inspiring call to action
I welcome further opportunities to work with Christian
