Dr. Selanikio gave a fantastic TED-style talk on data-driven innovation in health at the 2018 HHS Opioid Symposium, bringing the audience through the history of tech through the latest developments in big data and AI, and tying it all together in a package that was entertaining and informative, and highly-rated by the audience.
... one of the most engaging, thought-provoking, dynamic, and relevant speakers I have had the pleasure to watch. Relevant, entertaining and insightful .... when you watch him speak, you can immediately see the passion he has for the topic. He has a knack for connecting little-known facts with the topic at hand that leaves the audience in awe... The attendees continued talking about the concepts he presented for days after the event. He is hands-down one of the best keynote speakers I have watched in my career.
If you need inspiration, education and entertainment, Joel covers all three. He was a keynote speaker at the Irish Health Research Board conference on Big Data in Health, the opportunities and challenges ahead. He did not speak to our audience, he brought them on a journey. First we went back in time. This was to ground our understanding of how far we have come in the world of data, big data and AI. Through clever examples and recent research papers he demonstrated the growth and potential of big data and AI for health. If you asked anyone in our audience, they would say it was an incredible journey.
I never felt more satisfaction in any decision than on the one to bring Joel onboard; he gave a fantastic talk to more than 1500, nearly the entire group of attendees.
Joel gave an outstanding presentation at our annual partners’ meeting in 2017, speaking to the top 200 leaders in our company. His vision of the impact technology will have on healthcare was compelling ... I’d highly recommend Joel for anyone who is looking for a speaker that will present a compelling vision of the future of healthcare.
I strongly recommend Dr. Joel Selanikio as an extraordinary speaker. Bayer Portugal had Dr. Selanikio on two occasions in Portugal to speak about collaboration and its impact on society and science advances and on both talks he manage to capture the audience’s attention in a most entertaining, fresh and interesting way.
He was just incredible from the beginning of our conversations, to the event presentation, to the post event engagement with the audience. A wonderful professional to deal with. I would engage Joel at the next opportunity I have.
