How you focused and positioned our new brand of products, created a messaging platform and communications strategies that emotionally moved our customers achieved phenomenal impact. Overall, you created, or shall we say invented a new brand strategy that resulted in a successful product launch that moved the needle to drive demand beyond what we ever envisioned . You’re not just a trusted resource for our product marketing groups, but a real marketing partner.

We were in awe of your engaging style in presenting and interacting with our audience. You’re spot on in that ‘focus’ is the key to building brand equity, enhancing customer loyalty, and propelling business growth. Your sharing of ideas and the passion you have for driving success is admirable. Your vast experience and the talent you have in creating break-through marketing successes is inspiring.
