Soren’s engaging keynote jump started our event and got the entire audience thinking about how we can transform the healthcare landscape. He tailored his message to our company, worked collaboratively, and delivered both strategic insights and practical ideas that we can use moving forward.

As a professional conference organizer, we initially asked Soren to deliver a top level, executive education workshop to kickoff an event with over 300 C-Suite executives from the healthcare industry. The feedback was so outstanding we invited him back to lead a similar discussion at another event. Soren’s unique ability to tailor his message, facilitate collaboration, and push the thinking of senior executives, puts him in the top tier of speakers we work with.

Soren was able to captivate, inspire, and transform a diverse group of physicians, nursing directors and senior leadership with a combination of a keynote and an applied workshop.

His use of video, slides, and workshop techniques really made his messages stay with all who attended.
