“Armin Ellis comes with my highest recommendation, he has impeccable listening skills and is a thought leader in the area of process and product development.
I sponsored and took part in Exploration Institute's workshop, held at Pasadena Caltech. The approach was invigorating, refreshing, avant-garde, and open-minded. With a cross-section of innovative experts, actively connected in spearheading new visionary, innovative, and sustainable solutions, capable of market implementation. Armin Ellis ran a flawless event, his attention to detail left nothing spared.
