Speaking at Smashing Conf 2023, Antwerpen (Photo by Marc Thiele)

“Oliver was a fantastic speaker at Spajk in Stockholm. He magically switched between jokes and practical information, and captured the audience the entire talk. A lot of the attendees rated Oliver as one of the greatest speakers that they have seen.”

Andreas Jangefalk, Co-organizer of Spajk

“Oliver has his own particular style of quirk and humour that really sets his speaking style apart from almost anyone else I’ve seen before. His delivery is hilarious, but never detracts from his message—I learned so much from him in such a short space of time. I think he’s pretty unique, and I’ve seen a lot of conference speakers! I’d recommend getting him on-board.”

Harry Roberts, CSS Wizardry
