CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

We never knowingly make contact with or gather personal data from anybody under the age of 13. We have built our website to prevent our knowing acceptance of information from children under 13 whenever age-related information is sought because our website is not meant to solicit information of any sort from children under 13.

It is possible for us to unknowingly receive information about children under the age of 13 through fraud or deception. If this is reported to us, as soon as the information is verified, we will either promptly seek parental permission or take other steps to remove the data from our servers. Please email us at info@blueoceanglobaltech.com if you wish to let us know if a youngster under the age of 13 sent us information.

      The Legal Marketing Association's Tampa City Group was honored to have Sameer come to speak with us regarding Online Reputation Management. Sameer is an energetic presenter who took the time to answer each and every one of our questions. His expertise was evident in his polished presentation, and our members were engaged thoroughly. All communications leading up to the event were timely and friendly, and I have enjoyed my time working with Sameer on this speaking engagement.

      Paul Smith, CFA

      Marketing professional at National Center For College & Career Transitions (NC3T), The TASA Group and ASK For Tutoring

      I have known Sameer for over 7 years now. He is a force of nature! I have rarely met anyone with such positive energy and enthusiasm. He is always fun and engaging to be around. We have worked together at numerous events over the years. He is a compelling and engaging public speaker. As a CFA Charterholder he gave freely of his time as a volunteer helping other Charterholders maximise their online presence, their use of technology and raise their ethical standards. We worked together in India as well as in the US and at all times Sameer showed himself to be a master in all cultural settings. He’s simply a great guy with great core values, an incredible work ethic and expertise in so many different areas that drive the modern world we live in.

      Tamie Maffeo

      Marketing Manager at NEIRG Wealth Management. & Business Succession Advisers, LLC

      Working with Sameer and the team at Blue Ocean Global Technology has been such a positive experience! The ongoing communication combined with the efficiency of work of the team is very much appreicated. Sameer is quick to respond to any questions we may have. He and his team is quick to to resolve any questions that arise. They go above and beyond for us no matter what day or time we reach out. I have had many dissapointing engagements over the years with similar firms but must say that this is a refreshing experience. I am in a niche business with complicated regulations surronding our marketing platform. Having the peace of mind that the team at Blue Ocean is there to impliment and guide our firm gives me great satisfation. That being said, I give them my highest reccomendations and would gladly speak with anyone who has any questions regarding my experience.

      Jay Chong

      EVP, Head of e-Mobility Group at SK Group

      I had a chance to work with Sameer for several months, and he has been one of the most transparent and responsible people I have ever worked with. He has been highly responsive, always responding within a day despite the time zone difference, and thoughtful, which was a big relief for me as some I worked with in the past were "Catch Me if You Can". He has delivered all his promises and more. He has been genuine and results oriented. It has been a pleasure working with him, and I highly recommend his service.

      Vern Hayden

      Client Advocate at Sovereign Financial Group, Inc

      Sameer lives outside the cliche’s of life. Let me put it this way:

      If you were looking for someone totally committed to helping in a mission, a cause, or company you would want Sameer.

      If you were looking for someone who would drop everything to help you, who knows the best and worst about you, someone with empathy and understanding, in short someone you call a “true friend” , you would want Sameer.

      If you want someone who has aligned themselves with the great causes of women you will want Sameer. If you want someone who gives a damn about kids that are abused,misplaced,without direction,kicked to the curb, and need help get Sameer.

      If you want someone to give a mesmerizing presentation get Sameer. He will stay up all night doing relentless research on the subject and the audience and inspire your audience to action.

      If you want someone with a consistent well defined philosophy of life combined with a remarkable code of ethics you want Sameer.

      If you want a leader with emotional and academic intelligence combined with magnetic charisma check in with Sameer.

      If you want a team player who has been in the trenches as well as the mountain tops Sameer has been there.

      If you want someone to help stabilize your business and take it to greater fulfillment Sameer will be there for you.

      If you need a George Gilder tech genius as a resource., Sameer knows the best and can bring innovative solutions to your challenges. ( the right wing radio host Rush Limbaugh said if he could choose another brain it would be Gilder’s.)
      If you need someone to trust with integrity and accountability you need to meet Sameer. I could go on but I think you know how I feel about this guy now. I have known and been a friend for over two decades.

      Sameer Somal is a personality you cannot forget! I met Sameer one year exhibiting at the Delaware Valley Legal Expo in King of Prussia, PA. It was the end of the night and he came over to introduce himself to me and my colleague. We engaged in an amazing conversation about The TASA Group and about relationship management. He helped us take our belongings to the car at the end of the night. We all left with a new connection and a lifelong friend. So excited with meeting Sameer, we immediately figured out how we could work together - webinars, articles and in-person presentations to some of the organizations we are partnered with. It's been a few years since we met and Sameer continues to thrive in his field and in his expertise. The light he exudes is both infectious and comforting. I would recommend Sameer for any job!

      My name is Walter J. Wiesenhutter and I am loyal client of Sameer Somal’s and Blue Ocean Global Technology. I founded Jay Associates in 1984 and served as president of our consulting company for several decades. Regretfully, our offices were in the World Trade Center in 9/11 and we lost key team members as a result of those tragic events. We persevered for the next few years to replace the seemingly unreplaceable. I met Sameer, one of the co-founders of Blue Ocean Global Technology in 2005. I was immediately impressed with his genuine character and commitment to serving others. The emergence of the internet and digital technology changed our business so much and our meeting couldn’t have been more serendipitous. I was quite fortunate to learn of this company’s world-class resources. Over the years, they were instrumental in improving our stellar reputation and building a digital presence that reflected the trust we had with our clients offline. As business partners, clients, and friends complained about their Google presence, disappointing web development projects, and digital marketing companies over promising and under delivering, I referred them directly to Sameer and his team at Blue Ocean Global Technology. Their needs and requirements were always handled with care; the feedback is always exceptional because they deliver results based on exactly what the companies want to help them grow. When Blue Ocean Global Tech did not feel they could provide the best service or guidance on a particular situation, Sameer and his colleagues are honest with me or anyone from my network. They then took the time to find resources and partners within their trusted network that were a better fit. Today, at 75, I am delighted to share and document my successful experiences with this team of excellent professionals. If you are looking for a global team that is diligent, honest, and transparent, you have found the right company in Blue Ocean Global Technology. Not only do I give them my highest and best recommendation, I feel fortunate to call many of their global team members my friends!
