"Ian knows shopper, shopper-led design, and retail spaces like nobody I've ever met. He's given me huge food for thought on how to appeal to shoppers, and how to let the ever-changing needs of today's shoppers cut through the noise of the retail environment. Ian is a likeable, intelligent presenter, and a great person to spar with. He'll always be my go-to sounding board for his opinion and insight, as long as he'll let me!"

"Consumer patterns, expectations + behaviours are evolving. It is imperative for leaders in the “brick + mortar” space to not only keep up with this revolution, but in fact to drive it. And very few people truly understand this. Ian does. Ian has a great handle on this brick + mortar ecosystem. I wholeheartedly endorse Ian for his passion, knowledge and forward vision around something we are both passionate about... world class, cutting edge, retail."
