“Richard Yonck shared with our Rotary Club of Seattle Metropolitan perhaps one of the most awe-inspiring, intriguing presentations on new technologies – so much so that we invited him to come back for a second follow-up presentation where he again gave very insightful details on another technological advent, 3D printing, and its use across engineering, fashion, gastronomy, biology and more. One of the things that differentiates Richard is that he is truly passionate and knowledgeable about technology past, present and future. This is even further evidenced as he indulges the audience’s Q&As on both actual and hypothetical issues. Richard’s presentations provide us a leap-frog perspective of the shape of things to come and be prepared for in the days ahead.”
