"Gil is an awesome presenter, and her content is rich with insights and useful perspectives. We asked her to keynote a major event, and the feedback was uniformly positive - people loved what she shared, how she shared it, and the depth of insight she provided from the Trend Hunter database. I hope we have another event soon where we can ask her back!"

Marketing in the Crisis of Authenticity
