    "Julian's keynote within our annual Panasonic Convention 2013, which we organise for more than 1,500 editors and dealers, was very well received by all guests who attended his presentation. For me, his presentation was not only an inspiration business-wise (because it was such a good fit for our consumer electronics products and Panasonic's name (meaning "Global sound"), but it was also good mixture of information - conveyed in a very lively way - and provided great learnings for everyday life. His subject of sound is universal and relevant for everyone, and I would recommend him as keynote speaker for other opportunities within Panasonic and externally."
