Nah, first show me a video of Karl speaking

What are other conference organizers and speakers saying? 

I know, it's very easy to say great things about myself. So I'll let other conference organizers and top-class speakers do the talking. 

I've never seen anything similar to this. All attendees gave Karl a 5-star rating. My deep respect for that performance. I think it was the best I’ve ever seen.

“Karl received the by far best ratings ever seen on Conversion Jam, the biggest CRO conference in Europe. And the second time he spoke here, the audience seemed to like him even more. Probably because Karl always delivers."
