André de Almeida, Founder | President | Almeida Advogados | Inter-American Bar Association
“I first heard Itzik Amiel when I was President of the Inter-American Bar Association. Perhaps his greatest strength is his skill in personal diplomacy. He has a knack on his lectures for crossing cultural boundaries to establish mutually beneficial personal and business relationships. In short, he has a well-founded reputation as a speaker in the international arena with the personal touch to calm sometimes turbulent discussions. Therefore, I would highly recommend Itzik Amiel.”
Fernando Vaisman, , Partner | Almeida Advogados
“Itzik Amiel’s presentation on non-verbal communication left me and the rest of the audience in awe, and filled us with excitement. Itzik has a rare ability to engage with the audience and enlighten them to ways of thinking and communicating with the world that they may have never contemplated before. His innate charisma and seamlessly integrated multimedia presentation immediately captured the audience’s attention and did not let it go until every audience member was convinced of Itzik’s thesis, and could not understand how they had ever thought otherwise. Itzik truly gives a master class in how public speaking should be done.”
Alessandro Righetti, Partner | Studio Carnelutti
As a man and as a lawyer I have always considered the art of dialectics a value, characterized by rigorous logic and persuasive power. The ability to communicate is based on the value and use of words! Itzik is a man who definitely knows how to capture the attention and interest of his audience with words…personally I feel that his presentation at the globalaw meeting in Israel greatly exceeded the highest expectations of the audience.
Rene van Zelst, Partner | Cox & Partners
I admire his professionalism, his knowledge, his wide array of interests and the way he brings all of this together in a serious, yet lighthearted approach. He addressed the audience without notes, yet sharp and funny. I truly recommend him to involve in any conference. He did challenge the audience to identify what they want to talk about to get the ball rolling. His engaging talk made the day a real pleasure!
Alexander Hemmes, Head | DSC Students Association
Itzik’s lecture on networking opened the eyes of all attending students. His story contained lots of surprising elements that made the story fascinating throughout the whole lecture. Itzik spoke about the lessons that he has learned on networking in an interactive way, supported by video footage, funny and intriguing anecdotes and personal experiences. Every students left the room with ideas on how they could implement Itzik’s experiences in their daily life.
Agustin Mayer West, Partner | Ferrere Abogados
“As a regular participant of the IBA meetings I had the pleasure of attending Itzik’s presentations many times. Itzik is not only a great speaker, he is a showman. For conveying his meaning he uses words, gestures, body language and technology better than anybody I have ever seen. It’s impossible for one of Itzik’s presentations to go unnoticed; they are always one of the highlights of every conference. What he is able to convey in his presentations remains forever in his listeners’ hearts and minds. He is a unique speaker”
Dr. Rouven F. Bodenheimer, Chair | Young Lawyers Committee, International Bar Association (IBA)
As soon as I began organising the IBA Young Lawyers’ Committee’s very first joint standalone conference, I knew that I wanted Itzik on board as a speaker. He not only understands the challenges which face lawyers as they continue to develop personally and professionally in both domestic and international environment but Itzik also brings to the table an extensive legal and communications skillset and demonstrates the insight to get to the fundamentals of his topics and simplify complex issues. As well as his natural flair for public speaking, his enthusiasm for innovation in delivery makes him a pleasure to work with.

Rajas Kasbekar, Partner | Little & Co.
“Itzik’s unique style of presentation managed to hold my attention all through his interactive session on networking skills held at the Annual conference of the International Bar Association in Dubai in November 2011. His presentation was simple, logical, interesting and had loads of humor in it which made it enjoyable for the audience. There were some excellent take-aways from the session especially on time management, people skills and marketing. It was an absolute pleasure to hear Itzik speak and I wish him success in his endeavor to reach out to a larger audience worldwide.”
Juan Guillermo Ruiz, President | International Fiscal Association [Colombia]

Itzik has been one of the most important speakers at the CFO events organised by Dun & Bradstreet in the years 2010,2011,2012 and he was an inspirational speaker and exceeded the highest expectations of the audience. His words were moving and inspiring to everyone including myself. He truly deserved the standing ovation that everyone gave him.” He captured the entire audience’s attention and held them spellbound. His multimedia support is also riveting. It compliments the entire presentation beautifully. Combine this with his ability to connect with an audience, allowing those present to relate to his message and the result was a real magic in the room. Itzik'z presence and presentations have added a great value to our conferences and we

"Itzik has a very unique way of presenting a topic. He definitely is not the usual lecturer. His presentations are lively, sharp and inspiring. He is very successful in delivering the message".
Aku Sorainen, Senior Partner and Chairman | Sorainen
Itzik made a really excellent presentation during our firm's summer days in August 2012 for 160 people about networking and CRM. The lively way he shared his personal experience and gave practical hints was truly energizing and kept all of us fully focused all the time. Many people praised his presentation even several weeks afterwards. Itzik is a true asset for any company who wants to make its personnel aware of the importance of these issues.
Tom Wheeler, Managing Director | International Referral
"International Referral the global network of advisers invited Itzik to give a presentation on Networking, at our annual conference in London, September 2012.

On a personal level, Itzik is a great guy and I would highly recommend him for public speaking engagements."
Benjamin Cubides, Partner | Norton Rose SAS
There are messages that last in the minds of people. Yours is one. Transmitted with energy in a language easy to understand and with a clear and deep message that captures attention and leaves people with a smile and with new ideas and useful tools to achieve their goals.

Thanks to you we achieve that with a non-conventional closing speech that we will never forget. Thank you for helping us to do the 3rd Latin American IFA Congress in Bogota a great success.
Robert U. Sattin, President | TAG Law and TAIG international networks
