    Jim Collins, author of Good to Great, on Kevin Maney:

        ". . .one of the most insightful journalists about the dynamic world of technology, the companies that rise and fall based on those technologies, and the people who seek to change the world through those technologies. Kevin has a peculiar genius for seeing what makes people tick. And it is, after all, people who invent new technologies, build companies, destroy companies, exercise power, act with wisdom, and engage in folly."

He is a frequent keynote speaker and, because of his standing in the industry, is often called upon to serve as on-stage interviewer of high tech chieftains at forums and special events. He recently appeared with NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson and Digital Chocolate CEO Trip Hawkins.

Kevin has lectured at universities, business schools, and in corporate settings. He has also participated in Purdue University’s prestigious Science Journalism Laureates program.
