"Robert's credentials alone set him apart from even the most accomplished entrepreneur. I worked with Robert on strategy for a worldwide digital rights licensing initiative and found his grasp of the topic and forward thinking exciting and relevant in the ever changing arena of digital rights licensing. Creative, innovative, agile and aggressive, Robert has what it takes to determine the viability of new business models and the strength and acumen to bring new online and mobile ventures to market. I found him unique, a sort of Renaissance man in his combination of personal, spiritual and professional excellence."

"It's difficult to describe his wealth of knowledge and visionary leadership in a short recommendation. Robert Holtz is simply one of smartest people I've ever worked with and has become the master of so many disciplines it's almost laughable. One wonders how he could be so good at so many things and still find time to sleep. Whatever your needs - technology, finance, marketing, sales, communication - chances are Robert will have already studied and assimilated the science and art of the discipline and will have dazzling and creative solutions to make your company better and more successful. I've known and worked with him numerous times over more than 20 years and have always found him to be brilliant, creative, and accomplished, and doing it all with a great sense of humor."

"Robert is probably one of the most multi-talented, extraordinary human beings I've ever met. It's rare to find the sorts of valuable qualities that Robert possesses all rolled into one man. He is living proof that it is possible to operate from both macro and micro points of view. He is extremely detailed orientated but is also easily able to see and focus on the big picture and to take the necessary steps towards achieving goals. His communication skills and mastery of the written word make him an extremely valuable asset to our organization as he's demonstrated in the drawing up of a professional Executive Summary and his negotiation with key players. Robert is well versed with all the latest technology and I regularly turn to him when I need help in this area. There is so much more that I could say about Robert because he is so multi-faceted and talented in so many areas."
- Chanti Niven, Founder/CEO, Chanti Niven International, Captivating Speakers
"Robert Holtz possesses one of the strongest combinations of heart and mind that I've had the privilege of knowing. Having envisioned and founded numerous companies and creative projects, Robert has served in all aspects of management, at all levels, with integrity. His knowledge base across multiple sectors is staggering as is his creative eye. I've had the opportunity to see Robert in action professionally and found him quite impressive. That said, I most appreciated his actions during times of adversity. He has always maintained the highest standard of human decency and therefore garners tremendous respect from me."
- Mark Laisure, Executive Producer at Edge Visual Studios
"Having known Robert for over thirty years, it is difficult to summarise the man in a short paragraph and do him justice. He is, without doubt, a true entrepreneur and visionary with a wealth of knowledge and experience across multiple disciplines. From a technology standpoint, I do not know, nor have I met anyone who possesses such a depth of understanding and vision, yet able to communicate with such clarity. A man of integrity that I trust both personally and professionally and a man whose opinion I respect and have often sought. What is also refreshing is Robert's sense of humour and razor-sharp wit. As a Brit, this is very welcome and admired among our American cousins. Robert is a thoroughly decent human being... brilliant, creative and definitely ahead of the curve and a man I am proud to have as a friend. It is without hesitation that I wholeheartedly recommend Robert as I know he will apply himself to any task with an unequalled excellence."
