Anne Marie was fast-paced and engaging (key for opening presentations), and delivered great information at a tempo that reflected the dynamic, rapid-change environment of retail. She is an accomplished speaker, and blends concepts, content and images (still and moving) in a way that captivated the audience and captured the essence of the themes we wanted to explore at our conference. Her hour-long presentation flew by, culminating in some scenes of the future that simply blew people away. “Wow!” was the most common reaction! I highly recommend her as a speaker, and also as “someone you should be talking to” if your interests are related to changing consumer behaviors, marketplace change, the impact of technology, the retail scene, or related areas. You will not be disappointed. - Executive Director, Warrington College of Business Administration, David F. Miller Center for Retailing Education & Research
