“Michael Casey recently presented at Targeting Tomorrow – Omnicom Media Group’s annual Digital Marketing Conference in Australia. He blew away 500+ attendees, most of which came from global blue chip brands, and enlightened us all on how blockchain could disrupt the marketing and media industry.”
— Hayley Spence, General Manager, Omnicom Media Group, Sydney
No large-scale trade conference, client gathering, or in-house employee seminar is complete without a speaker who can walk its audience members through the implications of digital disruption. Now, with the blockchain paradigm shift poised to impact every industry, no conference should be without a speaker who understands how this new “Internet 3.0” framework for mediating human trust will intersect with all the other IT technologies of our age to take that process of digital disruption into overdrive.
In countless speeches and audience Q&A sessions, as both a moderator of panels and a panelist, in boardroom consulting sessions, during innumerable TV and radio appearances as both guest and anchor, and as a contributor to four documentaries, Michael has spent the past three decades, quite literally, speaking to the world. Over that time he has developed a unique talent for breaking down complex ideas in an entertaining manner, bringing people over the chasm of miscomprehension and unease to a better understanding of new technologies and of how the world is changing. Represented by the prestigious Lavin Speaker’s Bureau, he is a versatile public orator, having been employed to deliver keynote addresses, moderate and participate in panels, and emcee entire conferences. He is equally comfortable with audiences in thousands as he is in small conference rooms of ten.

“Each year, we host two major business meetings for our top investment advisors. The objective of these meetings is to provide content that provokes curiosity, stimulates thought, informs and inspires. Blockchain was a topic on each of our two agendas and Michael Casey and Rik Willard of Agentic Group delivered presentations that exceeded expectations. Each speaking at one meeting, our audiences were left feeling perplexed, amazed, intrigued and an overwhelming desire to learn more. Their subject matter expertise opened our eyes to an area that was virtually unknown. They were simply brilliant at describing a complex concept and helping us understand the importance of bitcoin in our futures.”
—Julie Burnham, Senior Advisor for Communications at BMO Nesbitt Burns
“As the organizer of the event I saw the feedback and it was outstanding. No one has ever seen anything like this in Australia - and, I would argue, globally - as he graciously put together a bespoke presentation for our client needs. This will be hard to top next year, that's for sure!”
—Hayley Spence, General Manager, Omnicom Media Group, Sydney
“I knew that our series of conferences at CES had to start paying attention to the world of digital money, but the moderator/emcee would need to be able to: cross the chasm between traditional and new financial systems, be engaging with a wide variety of speakers, be able to entertain as well as educate, be able to keep his /her journalistic standards high and be super-knowledgeable. Not an easy job to fill, but Michael Casey did it.”
—Robin Raskin, Founder, Living in Digital Times, LLC
“Michael’s presentation on blockchain at the Bristlecone Pulse event was excellent. From the time I began working with him to curate the content, I knew his session would be a favorite for our attendees, who are CIOs and VPs of Operations/Supply Chain. Beyond introducing the basics of blockchain, Michael guided the audience through insightful use cases and relevant challenges. He encouraged them to think more deeply about the fundamentals of trust and the cost of alternative systems. I look forward to future opportunities to welcome Michael to interact with our customer ecosystem.”
—Rebecca Nerad, Head of Global Marketing and Alliances at Bristlecone
"It was a pleasure collaborating with Michael to produce EventHorizon 2018 in Berlin. He was highly professional. He perfectly understood how to bridge the complex world of the blockchain with the world outside of it. We received nothing but extremely positive feedback on Michael's roles both as MC and as moderator of the final panel. He showed himself to be a great personality who was always open to talk to attendees during breaks."
—Stefanie Gruendel, Business Architect at Hive Wise
"Michael not only presented a fluent, interesting, top-notch speech that was perfectly tailored to the audience; he also did an outstanding job with the panel that he moderated, where he had to deal with latst-minue changes to the program and to the lineup of panelists. He was able to improvise and mediate a panel of specialists in various areas within blockchain industry and investment and managed to come up with engaging questions on the spot. "
