“I've known Arnold for about 5 years now, and in that time not only has he continued to be a trusted resource but also a personal friend. Arnold has an uncanny ability to see whats on the horizon and stay on the cutting edge while discarding the "Digital Chaff" that can bog down a business and lead to wasted time and effort. I look to him as a trusted resource and sounding board whenever I consider strategies and products both Professionally and Personally.
Furthermore his Marketing and Management skills are some of the best in the business. I've attended every Digital Dealer since DD3 and have never seen either the turn-out or a Conference that size run as efficiently as the Events he was involved with. He is passionate, professional and personable and would be an excellent asset to any organization he becomes affiliated with.” October 23, 2011
