“What really fascinated me was Cate’s ability to adapt to our specific audience. Displaying great innovations is one thing, but making it relevant for our customers made it all so much better. She picked out the low hanging fruits of innovations that our customers could start implementing the day after. We could tell that our customers enjoyed the presentation and that it gave them something real that they could use for their business.”

“It was so great to hear you speak. Your presentation was very thought-provoking and inspiring. My colleague and I had a good follow-up conversation about it afterward. I like the way you present, it’s very clear, there’s solid information, and you bring your personality in. We could have listened to you for much longer. Thank you.”
