“Thank YOU for delivering such an engaging, thoughts provoking and inspiring session. The whole team has given some very positive feedback and most said that it was the perfect way to end a tough dark week and reflect constructively over the weekend. We are very grateful to have had this opportunity and will treasure those learnings for the weeks and months to come.” Emmanuelle Noyer, General Manager, Estée Lauder & AERIN Beauty

“Minter delivers his content with a level of assertion, together with a grace and gentleness which allows you to follow his salient and succinct points. This combination was perfect for us to learn the art of listening through a workshop teaching us about effective collaboration. It was as if we watched a true master at work.” Shelly Frame, Commercial Director, Etch Group


“Minter has an extremely positive impact on our remote teams. We didn’t see the time go by and his interactive mode allowed everyone to participate! I highly recommend his lectures.” Camille Canuet, VP Group Inclusion & Diversity, Suez environnement SAS

“For the first time in its history, our organisation decided to do something a little different for the opening session of our annual Conference instead of just having industry reports and regulatory sessions. After a gap of almost three years due to the pandemic, we wanted someone who could motivate us all at our reunion in-person Conference! Minter certainly did that! With his charisma, humour, and exceptionally motivational words, he truly delighted our audience – most of whom had no idea what to expect! The feedback I received as the person responsible for the speaker programme, was excellent. I couldn’t recommend Minter highly enough!” –Tina Hotchin, Speaker Programme Manager, International Federation of Essential Oils & Aroma Trades (IFEAT)

“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.” Dmitry Shishkin, Digital Editor, Languages at BBC World Service

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

“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.” Niki Danko, L’Oreal Canada Retail Sales Director

He has also been instrumental in helping me formulate themes and developing new ideas for our shows.”

Rod Banner, Adgistics Executive Chairman (@rodbanner): “There’s a moment, just after he’s been introduced, when Minter is just standing there. That’s when I always get excited. He’s a showman, a storyteller, a prognosticator. He’s also a mine of interesting, provocative, insightful information.
