Alec recently spoke at our Sydney Diamond Club session and the feedback i received from our attendees was that Alec shared information in the space of design and networking in such a way he made us think in contexts we hadn’t considered before. I believe the mark of a great speaker is someone who helps the audience think in ways they’ve not thought before. Alec certainly did this. Thanks Alec!
