“I asked Minter to open up the Digital Editors’ Network event that I hosted at BBC HQ in November 2018. The main topic of the afternoon’s discussion was leadership in newsrooms. I specifically wanted Minter to open the event because of his interest in various aspects of leadership as well as knowledge of disruptive technologies and wider trends in digital sector. He promised to be provocative to instigate a lively discussion, and his speech was exactly that – it did not leave anyone disengaged. I would recommend Minter as a speaker to any sectors dealing with leadership and disruption challenges.”

Dr John L. Collins, Chairman of the Real Time Club and Fellow at Cambridge Judge Business School

“Minter is enormous fun, thought-provoking and inspiring. I love organising Real Time Club events – especially when they’re as great as this one – Minter is a fabulous speaker and raconteur, he gave us one of the very best evenings we’ve had in a while.”

Niki Danko, Retail Sales Director

“Minter thinks of the impossible and works on making it possible… When he speaks you want to hear what he has to say. His debating skills are legendary.”

Becky Liggero, Reporter

Robin Cox, IT Director

“The Digital Academy in Paris in June 2013 was one of my favourite experiences during my time at Gucci Group/Kering and one of the standout moments in my career journey.”
