Testimonials “He’s got lots of interesting stories to tell: I think very few entrepreneurs have sold multi-hundred-million-dollar companies to both Apple and Samsung; very few people have worked this closely with Steve Jobs on a project that was clearly more than personal to him; very few people have interacted with so many top people, including Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, and many more. AI and next generation interfaces are both very hot topics that Dag knows a lot about, and he is one of the most visionary futurists that I know; I’m sure many companies will be interested to hear where he thinks the world is heading” Adam Cheyer Co-Founder of Viv Labs For more information on Dag Kittlaus please visit contact Oration Speakers: -
