Experience by Function


“Thank you for a fantastic delivery to the Canadian CEOs at the Executive Roundtable. Your passion and energy are contagious and your depth of knowledge a privilege to work with. I have thoroughly enjoyed our growing professional relationship … very cool website, hat’s off!”


“When I was asked to put together an executive retreat, I wanted to impress. I had neither hesitation nor stress when I asked Dr. Nick Bontis to speak. I have seen Dr. Bontis’ presentation three times now, and every time I learn and unlearn something new. In an ever changing world, the default position for many executives is to hold on to what they know and what they do. As a speaker, Dr. Nick Bontis takes us on a journey that allows us to understand just how things evolve and the need for individual evolution. Every time, the reaction from the participants is unanimous: ‘’he is so good – I was on the edge of my seat’’. Thank you. Really.”


“Dr. Nick Bontis brought a rare combination of insight and entertainment to the subject of intellectual capital planning our Spring Government CIO Summit. He achieved one of the highest session scores ever, 4.9 out of 5, from our knowledgeable and demanding audience of government Chief Information Officers.“


“Dr. Bontis did an outstanding job at our recent Global Executive Seminar. Out of a total score of 5.0, participants rated him 4.86 for the overall topic and 4.94 for whether he was effective. Comments from participants included: he was the highlight of the conference; his stories and metaphors were useful and fun; his was one of the most compelling presentations I have seen; he was the best speaker I have seen in years, he taught me how to sell KM to clients and his high energy level and enthusiasm offered many new perspectives.”


“As an academic and researcher, Nick’s work is first rate – meticulous, meaningful and packed with deep insight. That in itself would be reason to recommend him, but he’s also a wonderfully engaging speaker who can take complicated data and analytics and make them come alive. Dynamic, engaging, entertaining, informative and thought-provoking – he’s got it all.”


“Imagine a group of senior executives, who having arrived from all parts of the globe; spend a long day actively involved in intense workshops determining what the best Knowledge Management solutions were for their firm. Perceive the group dinner that night where these same executives are feeling wrung out, jet lagged and exhausted. Then: Nick Bontis stands and delivers a speech on “Thinking Ahead: Taking the Knowledge Journey’. Within seconds these same executives are brighter, engaged, enthused and full of new thoughts for the future of the firm and are very ready for day 2 of the workshop. There are very few people in this world that are as engaging and as knowledgeable as Nick, never ever miss an opportunity to see him in action.”


“Dr. Bontis is a dynamic and motivating speaker; he engages the audience from the start of his presentation and keeps them entertained while sharing his valuable insights and knowledge. He was the highlight of our conference and left our participants wanting more.“



Selecting the ideal keynote speaker for your executive level event is critical. Senior leaders are often ruthless in their scrutiny of superficial content. Dr. Bontis thrives in this environment. He will deliver a dynamic and memorable session that will pay significant dividends for your c-level audience. His global credibility, empirical evidence, strategic-orientation and execution-focused delivery make him a favourite among discerning leadership groups such as the Conference Board Executives Council, YPO – Young Presidents Organization, MDRT – Top of the Table, HRPA Executive Retreats and leading Executive MBA programs across the country.
