Testimonials and Select Companies Where Fard Has Presented

Fard was a dynamic and anchoring force to a digital innovation summit I planned. He provided a research driven perspective that was rooted in opportunities to explore in digital health. His ability to leverage research to distinguish the signal from the noise was highly appreciated.
Jim Lefevere
Global Head, Marketing Strategy & Services, Roche
I've seen Fard Johnmar in action with groups/teams who are beginning to explore innovation and speaking to those who are more experienced. He's organized, professional, comes prepared with statistics, with survey results and decks you can read from the back of the room, and has a wonderful ability to engage and lead discussion.

Yesterday’s extended breakfast was nothing short of great. At a core level, it was a hit: those present met other solid, like-industry (minded) executives in a very dynamic industry AND learned a good-to-great bit too. I left feeling far more comfortable in my appreciation of some terms and applications that I was, quite honestly, only vaguely familiar with before… You presentation, in particularly, really set the tone in a rather exquisite way.
