Max came to our NYC office and we video conferenced him to all employees across the country. Max’s discussion of human/tech was awesome. It spurred new conversations among our team members on how we should be serving our users while allowing the company to show value for new and forward thinking ideas. There are a lot of ‘thought leaders’ out there, but I have not seen somebody blend cutting edge social philosophy with engaging performance like Max does, I highly recommend him.Evan Burns
