I've worked with Aiden on several occasion in my capacity as a startup community manager. Most recently, I've had the pleasure of inviting him to give a lecture on the relationship between media & startups, and how both can benefit form each other. I highly recommend Aiden as a keynote speaker on all matters related to media, digital media, fundraising, and crypto.

Aiden and I worked on a number of successful marketing campaigns, particularly around a very large trade show. Aiden is a creative marketer who knows how to use his experience as leverage to newer ideas, compared to those who get chained by their experience. I trust Aiden as a diligent, hard-working marketer whom I could depend on for work with a start-up on a low budget or with a million dollar budget for a business unit of a large corporate. I bow to his digital experience as I can also stand up for his integrity.

Aiden’s marketing ideas are super innovative and relevant. Even for a classic B2B product like Joan, he managed to plan vibrant and enticing communication that intrigued both technical and non-tech audience. As a marketing team lead he made sure to clearly communicate any next steps and expected KPIs. Aiden’s an absolute joy to work with since he’s always up to testing new ideas and ready to go the extra mile to make the most out of any campaign.
