What they say about me

Miko was perhaps first true digital evangelist I have seen in action. He is still a master of the art — always bringing original insight, humor and a genuine connection between the complexities of the technical world and real business and consumer applications any audience can relate to.

“I was lucky early in my career to get to see Miko speak at a company event. He was our CTO, and this was really my first time attending a big corporate rah-rah event. It was great listening to him. It was evident that he knew what he was talking about, but was also able to engage with the audience in a meaningful way. It lead me to change the direction of my career.”

I attended Miko’s first Talks on Webservices and cloud in Boston and NY Cloud Expo, 10 years back, and was instantly attracted to his combination of technology vision, articulation of complex scenarios and insights on why the shift. Have followed him since, and become a better leader along the way….
