It was a pleasure having Julie speak at our ASD International Retail Conference in Las Vegas. The retail and wholesale small business owners appreciated her topic "Using Innovation for Competitive Advantage". The interactive creativity exercises helped get the audience involved, and demonstrated that creativity in business is definitely the way to beat the competition at their own game. I would highly recommend her speaking services.

"Julie's speech on creativity and innovation was right on target for our scientists, who constantly need to generate new ideas in the lab. The creativity exercises for left and right brain thinking showed how important it is to get ideas from all sources and be able to connect those ideas to come up with a new and unique innovation. It was fun, entertaining and educational."
