"Jeremy is the most innovative speaker we've had and he inspired our group to look at our business differently. The feedback from participants was the most positive we've ever had on a speaker. In addition to the keynote, we hired Jeremy to lead a workshop with our executive team. His energy and enthusiasm is contagious and what followed was the most creative session we've ever had. I don't think our team would have achieved the insight we did had it not been for Jeremy. He helped us sharpen our focus on some key strategic initiatives which will lead to game-changing results. As if that wasn't enough, he even got us featured on CNN."
- Kevin McNeil, CEO, Gore Mutual
"We hired Jeremy to inspire us and lead a workshop for our innovation team. Our team's high level of success means that we have a very high bar and high expectations. However, Jeremy hit the ball out of the park with his energy, insights and his ability to customize the workshop. We've been raving about Jeremy around the office, which is unusual behavior after these types of events. One of our leaders said this was 'the most inspiring offsite in seven years!'"
- Linda Lee, Director, Cadbury

Participants finish our workshops with prioritized areas of focus, tactical next steps and strategies to implement change. More importantly, they finish with a toolkit of ideas they can take back to their teams to focus on opportunity and motivate change.
TREND HUNTING WORKSHOPS - How to Filter Trends
Micro-trends and viral innovations surround us, but once you layer on your customers, competitors and strategy, it becomes difficult to make sense of all the noise. Jeremy helps leaders implement cutting edge frameworks to filter opportunity and identify emerging trends in our chaotic world. These workshops can build upon client insights, or leverage external examples to help illustrate new techniques. Key takeaways include: a toolkit on how to filter ideas, next steps for innovation and a renewed motivation to change the world.
