“Rasmus was the perfect speaker. Great content, powerful stories, credible and engaging. He really helped us get our message across in a way that resonated with the audience. He was also a pleasure to work with – very flexible and understanding, and making the production side a lot easier for us. Thank you, Rasmus!”
