“Over my twenty-five years as President of the Center for Communities of the Future, I’ve had few individuals I collaborated with internationally who understand the concept of personal and societal transformation to the extent that Yoram does. He has not only the ability to analyze the needs of situations and people when they are threatened by transformative change, but also a rare set of skills from which he can select to bring people into an area of comfort with the challenges of constant change. One of Yoram's greatest talents is in facilitating individuals through authentic dialogue to think about the emerging future in new ways, enabling him to build networks of people with the capacity to collaborate at a deeper level within a "futures context." I give the highest recommendation for Yoram as a Transformational Coach. Few people I have met, combine the background experience and compassionate nature, with such a creative, inquisitive mind. Yoram is the epitome of what a personal, organizational and community transformational coach needs to be in this era of historical change.”
—Rick Smyre, president of the Center for Communities of the Future, owner of Strategic Concepts, Inc, co-author of Preparing for a World that Doesn’t Exist–Yet.

He has a calming nature and solid presence that is truly an expression of his authentic self. His writing demonstrates his storytelling ability to capture your attention, inspire and move you, and is not simply limited to his public speaking. Yoram is a perfect example of someone who lives his calling, and can motivate others to cultivate their own personal power.”

"I led a workshop on nonprofit business model assessment, and Yoram was in the audience. He immediately understood the framework and demonstrated its function in an example he devised on the spot. Yoram's enthusiasm for the intent and utility of the tool was infectious! Both his presence and active participation in the workshop were a huge credit to me, and I really appreciated his thoughtful demonstration. His bright intellect was on display, but in a way that helped others develop a deeper understanding of the subject. Yoram's gift of engagement is palpable, and made a big impression on me. I hope to work together one day!"

He has extraordinary energy, insight and dedication. A truly talented individual with the human touch."
