Axel is one of those few folks who understands both what the business needs and how the technology needs to support the business. His command of the digital media space, from both technical and business dimensions is truly impressive. And, he's a great human being and a pleasure to work with!

"Enterprise Goes Mobile" is an event series reflecting mobile as a resilient, unbreakable component in enterprise business process. It needed a keynote-speaker for its stop in #munichmt. @axelhoehnke combined all requirements for this engagement: mobile leadership, educating decision makers and addressing the mobile developer community. As the event revealed, Axel's keynote-speech was overwhelmingly positive received and trusted among the Central European enterprise mobile community. His long standing experience propels the mobile message to enterprises who then understand that the future of their business cannot circumvent the mobile paradigm. It needed the participation of a thought leader like Axel to make this event successful. I hope my recommendation is as thorough and diligent as Axel's preparation and guidance before the event and his presence at the event.

Axel has an amazing ability to link Mobile Innovation, Social Network Dynamics and their impact on international trade and investment. He is able to connect with and energize an audience, no matter how varied the group may be. At a recent conference that I organized he captured a crowd of media, tech, and online professionals with a presentation on Mobile Monday and its importance on driving innovation and cooperation between mobile developers, international technology companies and other relevant stakeholders. Great to see someone actually living the idea of Global Mobile Business Development

As VP Strategy and Business Development at Smaato, Axel was a tireless advocate for new approaches to both mobile business and branding. A compelling combination of energy and ideas, his work used psychology to understand organizational behavior and creativity to change it. I’m happy to recommend Axel; he’s an exciting person to be around. Axel presented to the key participants at some Online & Mobile Conferences in Singapore and obtained good reviews for his expertise in mobile advertising, his level of energy and how he challenged the participants in a positive, thought provoking and innovative manner. The title of the presentation was, "Mobile Innovation is changing Media and Offline Industries"
