  • jz“Ken’s presentations to the ECR Europe community are always a highlight and his invite to present once again at the Leaders Forum did not disappoint. His Digital DNA speech was very challenging to the business leaders in the room without exception. It was highly informative and as always incredibly entertaining. It is a window into a future that all brand owners need to witness”

  • jordi“We have more than 20 annual conference and training events. In all that time, we have never had a speaker with so much energy, shopper insight, experience and relevance, all delivered with enthusiasm and good humour – an ideal mix for any speaker. At our last 5 conferences he has recorded the highest delegate satisfaction score, and I would highly recommend him to other event organisers in the Shopper Marketing area”

  • shopper2"I have seen many presentations over the years concerning shopper behaviour, but the presentation by Mr. Hughes is the one which has kept my attention. He describes consumer behaviour in a very real and simultaneously interesting way, is a very good presenter with humour and passion for his subject, while also bringing it to life using varied case studies. I invited him to address my retail organization on shopper centricity and thankfully in these challenging times, we have seen results"

    "I met Ken at the ECR Europe Conference in Brussels where his session on “Shopper Irrationality” was my top ranked session among all in the event. It was also one of the best presentations that I ever had on Shopper Behaviour and Insight. In our Global Leadership Summit in July, we invited Ken to join all our Walmart Leaders from the world in Bentonville, USA. His presentation was once again an eye opening session which brought high engagement for all our participants"

  • robert“Our Shopper workshop can be summed up quite simply as challenging! Challenging in terms of how we approach our business, how we face our customers, how we communicate to our shoppers and our end proposition to consumers. Following the session my whole team came out not only with a clear definition of what best practice Shopper marketing is, but highly engaged in how we will make it an inherent part of how we work in the future. A highly recommended session”

  • positiv1"If you haven’t seen Ken Hughes present on the experiential future of shopping and retailing, you’re in for a real treat. Ken’s presentation is a thoroughly enjoyable cocktail of clever insights into the mind of consumers and cool futuristic technology that will boost business for retailers and brands, all served with a generous dose of good Irish wit. I see literally hundreds of speakers in a year - conference junkie as I am - and Ken is certainly one of the best I’ve seen. I highly recommend you to catch him at a conference near you in the future"

  • md“Ken Hughes’ presentation at DLF’s conference Innoday was a huge success. His profound expertise in shopper behaviour, excellent presentation delivery filled with humour and numerous illustrative examples was certainly well received by the attending retailer and manufacturer executives. Mr Hughes got the highest speaker rating at Innoday and he is definitely up there with top speakers like Kjell A Nordström and Hans Rosling. Not surprisingly, we have already invited Ken Hughes back to Stockholm for next year’s Innoday”

Ken’s provocative and engaging style and his clear thought leadership opened up fantastic debates on the changing nature of shopper and consumer engagement for our brands and the business overall. His delivery and facilitation really brought the issues to life and I would highly recommend Ken to kick-start the debate when working on the challenge of integrating digital deep within your marketing programmes “

    "We have had a number of other presentations on this topic previously but none approached the subject as Ken did. The way in which he brought the millennial consumer to life for the leaders of our business in this keynote speech was as challenging and informative as it was entertaining. This is a must-see speech for anyone in financial services, a real eye-opener"

    “Ken's true talent is the tailoring of his content to our audiences.  We have invited him to speak at several different Red Bull events, and his content is always uniquely tailored to that audience and event theme and ‘on the money’ with our hot topics. He challenges each of us to think outside of the box, and is both an educational and inspirational presenter. His keynotes not only posed some tough questions about the future shape of our industry but he also linked this to the emerging consumer forces evident today. He is as entertaining,  and engaging as he is challenging and not to be missed”

Our theme on the day was Navigation to Digital Customer Care and what a fantastic setting we had amongst the youth of Ireland at the BTYSTE in the RDS, for Ken to talk to us about the consumer habits of the future generation.
