There are very few women innovation speakers, and even fewer who have actually innovated. Julie is both. Hire a true innovator who’s been in the trenches and bootstrapped a unique invention from scratch and turned it into a global success with no venture capital, no bank loans, and no mentors.
Julie will teach you how to generate ideas on a consistent basis. Ideas to cut costs, improve sales, create new products, services, business models, ad campaigns, marketing & PR angles, and unique promotions. Imagine those tools in the hands of your competitor.
Then ask yourself… what is one good idea worth to your company?
