Testimonials

Rebecca Croll, Director of Content, FWD50

"We were fortunate enough to have Jeff join us for the inaugural FWD50 event in Ottawa (2017), looking at how we can use technology to make society better for all. Jeff brought a crucial voice to the unique needs, potentials, risks, and future of digital government in the lives of indigenous peoples. He was a absolute pleasure to work with: generous, responsive and professional and I very much look forward to future opportunities to collaborate with him!"

 Peter Wrinch, CEO, Hollyhock

"It was great to have Jeff and his family at Hollyhock for Activate: Digital Leadership 2018. Jeff's session on Animikii brought an inspired entrepreneurial, Indigenous voice to the conference. His personal story of building a mission based digital agency from the ground up resonated with so many of the change-makers at the conference. People were talking about his session all week. We would love to have Jeff and his family back to Hollyhock anytime!"

- Peter Wrinch, CEO, Hollyhock

Cherrie Lam, Digital Projects Coordinator, PeaceGeeks

"It was an absolute pleasure to have Jeff speak at our PeaceTalk on Reconciliation through Indigenous Innovation. His energy and ability to make a challenging and sensitive topic accessible and relatable to the audience certainly left a mark on us, and I have no doubt that his personal stories and insight left everyone in the room feeling inspired to take action and learn more about Indigenous knowledge, technologies and innovation. Jeff is a thought provoking leader, entrepreneur and presenter, and we would certainly recommend having him as a speaker!"

"Every year, we try to bring unusual angles and unexpected stories to the over five thousand attendees who come to Startupfest from around the world. Jeff’s ability to share his insights with that audience, explaining how to build and grow a solid business while finding a social True North and furthering meaningful outcomes, is a perfect example of this."

 Innovate BC, organizers of the #BCTECHSummit

“We were extremely excited to welcome Jeff and Animikii to the Ones to Watch Stage. Given that this stage featured the best up and coming tech companies in the province, it was a great opportunity for all of our summit delegates to learn about Animikii and help spark indigenous innovation across the province.”
