Terry's credentials and expertise in retail stood out in our search for a keynote to a group of entrepreneurs in women's health. Terry took the time before her keynote to research our group's pain points, challenges and opportunities - and when she presented, she nailed it. Terry's message is one that stands out because of her delivery and experience. Retail can be overwhelming, and that's something she knows firsthand. Through her own personal stories and learnings, she captivated our group - which is not easy first thing in the morning on day two of a conference. She had people laughing, listening and truly learning. Terry's keynote is one that stays with audiences because it's relatable and memorable, much like Terry herself. I highly recommend her to any audience.
