As a newly appointed CEO of a law firm with a change management mandate, I had ask Tom to talk to us about digital change in the White House. The way he introduced his topic and the challenges he was faced with, was not just relevant but resonated deeply with all of us (even those more resistant to change). He is both charismatic on the stage and very accessible at the same time. I would recommend Tom in a heartbeat.
