I delivered an interactive keynote at this conference entitled: Activating Allyship in the Age of Black Lives Matter, #MeToo and Covid. It was a robust discussion with high engagement throughout. I want to thank the sponsors, Guardant Health Inc. and the hosts from Hanson Wade for making it possible. See the reviews below!

From the Sponsors *Thank you so much for running this inspiring and thought provoking session. You have brought a whole new way of looking at these issues and I really appreciate your involvement in this. The feedback is already great and look forward to catching up with you soon.

*I’d like to add my thanks to Sam’s, for the terrific session you ran this morning. It was excellent – you’ve clearly spent a lot of time thinking about how to handle some very sensitive topics, the video was hair-raising and you’ve given me a lot to think about. Excited to explore doing some other sessions together. Thank you again.

From a Participant

Thanks for opening my eyes, for being a voice that gets heard, for educating us and for stretching me beyond my comfort zone today. Inspired is a word that almost gets over-used, but I want you know I am inspired, following your talk, to learn more and I aspire to actively participate and do more. I want to be the change that I would like to see! Bless you!

Looking forward to delivering more keynotes and engaging with leaders on these very important topics.

"[The] facilitator was absolutely phenomenal. Hands down one of the best run events I've attended. Thoughtful questions, skillful moderation, and high overall audience engagement." - MBA Delegate, Ross School of Business

I was delighted to be invited to the Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan to curate an interactive discussion entitled: Brand identity in the Age of Black Lives Matter: An Interactive Discussion about Brands and their Responses to Social Change. This was one event of many the school offered during their Diversity week.

Over 50 students and faculty showed up via zoom for a lively and spirited discussion which covered defining Black Lives Matter followed by some reflection, examining the role of inclusivity within an exclusive brand and concluding with individual best practice in respect to companies responding to social change. I was blown away by the insightful comments offered up by these emerging leaders and very impressed with their competency as they discussed these challenging topics.

I would like to thank the Michigan Marketing Club and The Retail and Luxury Goods Club for sponsoring the event.
