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.

  • 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.

    "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”
