NetFinance & eTail Europe Director, Worldwide Business Research (WBR)

Jared is a true futurist and thought leader. He spoke at our NetFinance conference recently and blew our very senior audience away with the top 10 trends they need to be ready for in the future. He was one of the clear stand-outs and received fantastic feedback from our hard to please audience. I would highly recommend his services
at any event or any company looking to keep up with highly demanding consumers.

Conference Director, IIR

I’ve had the opportunity to work with Jared on a number of conferences now and he’s become my GO TO speaker for all things future and trends. His ability to paint an actionable vision of what’s coming next is unparalleled and he continues to deliver unique and immediate value to very unique audiences. His stage presence, energy and willingness to completely customize his content have definitely taken our events to the next level.

Global Employee Service Leader, GE Schenectady

Thank you so much for kicking off our meeting. It was the perfect catalyst for great discussion and ideas over the next two days. I have to admit, I was a little nervous about 2 hours of talking with no charts. But you more than pulled it off. The group was engaged the entire time and the Q and A could have gone on for hours. To sum it up, you were terrific. Thank you again.
