"We loved Cate’s energy and confidence! The session had a good balance between being informative and fun. I’d recommend Insider Trends to businesses embarking on a digital journey, which often  calls for business transformation and change from tradition." - Imran, Retail Commerce Lead, IBM

"We enjoyed Cate’s dynamism and, of course, professionalism. My team was very happy with the  session, I heard that it has been a very long time since they had such level of performance." - Chanel, France 

"Very good presentation – one of the best in years. Thank you." - Jamie, Managing Director, RunBreeze 

"Very interesting and presented very clearly - thanks for a great presentation." - Carrie, Creative Director, Paperspace Design 

"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 afterwards. 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!!" - Michael, Senior Design Manager, Bultmann Design Works, Bremen   

"Being able to stay ahead of the game and identify future innovations has been incredibly valuable.  With a relaxed style and presentations jam-packed with relevant and new facts, stats and ideas, we  would highly recommend Insider Trends to any forward-thinking organisation." - Clare, Business Engagement Manager, The British Library 

"Cate gave us a great speech about blended brand ecosystems and what really fascinated me was her 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." - Anders, Marketing Manager, Avensia 

"The final presentation left the movers and shakers of the retail industry with something very interesting to mull over for the weeks and months to come.   I’m very fond of Cate’s way of working, which is to gently reinforce her hypotheses through an accumulation of case studies and examples. Her slides were something to behold, they made you want to visit every store or try every app she mentioned.   She refers to herself as ‘the 26th most influential person in retail’ but you’d to be hard put to imagine  that there are 25 more engaging and delightful thinkers or presenters out there." - Mike, Director, McDonald Butler Associates
