"Hector was beyond wonderful. He did not just meet, but exceeded his commitments to us. He was early for our connections, ready to go and took requests/feedback easily and made adjustments to satisfy the client’s requests. It always makes my job producing/directing much easier when I'm working with a truly consummate professional, like Hector, but beyond that, on a personal level, I genuinely enjoyed the opportunity to meet him, interact with him, hear his stories and listen to him provide invaluable expert insight on cybersecurity – ranging from how very exposed we truly are to how to avoid unnecessary risks. He's not just a remarkable speaker, but a genuinely wonderful person, and that likability factor just shines through every interaction with him. I consider myself very fortunate to have met him and worked with him."
"Hector was great! Our attendees really had positive feedback about his talk and wanted him to stay on stage longer!! He was very professional and easy to work with!"
