Worked with Michael Tchong and John J Anderson, on the inception and implementation team for Macweek. Learned a great deal from both. John was taken from us all way to early . Thankfully we still have minds like Michaels working for us all.Visit Linkedin Profile
Michael is a futurist deeply connected in Silicon Valley and with other leading-edge firms in a wide range of CPG, Durables, Services and Technology. I met Michael 10 years ago when I was VP Worldwide Marketing at Coca-Cola, and have always enjoyed seeing him present and engage audiences in 'what is coming & why it matters to them'. My headline is that he is a futurist entrepreneur who has published, organized breakthrough innovation events, brought innovators together to take action, and he actively speaks about innovation. I would highly recommend Michael for groups who want an insightful guided look into the future with relevant connections to their business.

Michael is the real deal. He's just ahead enough that he can look back and tell us what's coming. He knows gear, he knows trends, and he knows people - lots of people. I can hear his laugh a mile away and always look forward to his company. He's truly a visionary people should listen to, and they do. Make it your business to spend time with him and it will rub off on you, too.Visit Linkedin Profile
Heard Michael Tchong speak at the first TEDx in the city of Porto in Portugal. The thing that i liked most about his presentation was the energy sent to the audience. A very trend directed person, enthusiastic and the first non Portuguese person that used the Portuguese language properly to captivate even more the audience. He gave one of the most energetic speeches I've heard to this date. Thank you Michael for a presentation that we are used to see at TED website, hope you come back in 2011. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone or any company.Visit Linkedin Profile
Michael always exudes jubilance. Incredibly motivated and motivating. He is one the most positive and bright people that I've encountered in the business world.
We met back when he was running MacWeek, he always hosted the best parties- full of interesting people and dynamic conversation.
Michael is consistently discovering things way in advance of the rest of us, and he shares his insights so well. I always enjoy my interactions with Michael.
I had the privilege and pleasure of meeting Michael at the recent NACCM:Customers 1st conference in Phoenix. He was a keynote speaker there, and the one I was most interested to hear. If you need to shake your organization up, get a sense of how technology and social media are proliferating exponentially, and get a handle on some key trends you may want to ride - talk to Michael.Visit Linkedin Profile
