The future depends on those who don’t fit in. Those who are unique. The people we call weird. They’re the ones we need. We need them to be crazy, and we need to give them a platform to be crazy in.

AJ is a superstar storyteller besides being a gifted coach, CMO, speaker, and a CEO. He is an equally awesome human being. AJ connects with you at an emotional level & can feel and experience things with you. His desire to initiate conversations around developing EQ in schools is admirable. I would recommend AJ wholeheartedly.

What I appreciate about AJ most is his strategic mindset in maneuvering through large organizational topologies & hierarchies. He is confident, intuitive, well equipped in terms of people skills, & always switched on. If you're looking for someone who excels in sales & account management strategies on an enterprise level, AJ is your guy.

The first time I saw him was on the big stage during 2018 HRDF Conference. My first thought was, “He’s a young speaker.” But when he opened his slides, my second thought was, "Wow! so impressive." By the time he was done, "BOOOOM!!!! He is so inspiring." I was engaged throughout the session. Dr. AJ you are a true STORYTELLER.

Dr. A.J Minai, is one of the best digital storytellers I know. He engages, educates, and exposes his audience to the benefits of creating and optimizing their own ideas. Not the typical storyteller, as he uses raw experience to inspire and cultivate trust.
