What They're Saying:
"Bob Cooney is one of the most insightful speakers and moderators in the business. He inspires creators to think outside the box of their own creation and offers insights that are unrivaled in the immersive technology community. We can always count on Bob to tell it like it is based on hard facts and sometimes even harsh realities."
Founder @ VR FEST
"Bob Cooney took on curating the 2018 Amusement Expo International VR Education Program and he delivered well beyond my most ambitious expectations. He was able to recruit a tremendous number of thought-leaders from the VR industry who spoke to standing-room-only audiences. Bob acted as the moderator for the entire day of seminars leading professional, provocative, engaging and informative conversations. The responses I received from attendees were overwhelming two thumbs up. It was abundantly clear there's an appetite for the technology within the fun and entertainment venue industry. I look forward to the next opportunity to work with Bob."
Executive Vice President AAMA
“I had nothing but positive feedback on Bob’s keynote. People told me they were inspired by the talk and the energy. Bob Cooney killed it.”
Benjamin De Wit
Founder and Organizer, VR Days
"Bob is very passionate about the industry he loves and is always eager to impart his knowledge. He enjoys sharing his experiences with others so they can learn from him. He can speak on many levels on a variety of subjects. He is both a teacher and a student of life."
President and Publisher, Vending Times
"Bob Cooney is a terrific speaker - knowledgeable, innovative and thought-provoking! He has a wide range of experiences and successes to draw upon in his presentations, but what really makes Bob stand out as a speaker/commentator is his ability to gauge and relate to the audience and tailor his comments to address each particular audience's needs."
Michael C. Getlan
Director of Enthusiasm and Opportunity, Amusement Consultants, LTD
"Bob was asked by my company to speak at an event. Bob's sense of humor, creativity, and knowledge impressed our events team as well as the delegates of the conference. He received excellent reviews on all conference evaluations and people were very impressed. His personality made for a great time and a memorable event. We have invited Bob to speak again this year and would recommend him to anyone interested. "
