The Global Retail Marketing Association Annual Forum seeks out the most visionary thought leaders to present at our annual forum, including those who will inspire and inform our audience of senior retail marketing professionals to new levels of innovative thinking. Julian Treasure did just that. He gave a fascinating and engaging talk about the impact of sound on human behaviour; furthermore, he shared specific strategies and techniques that marketers could utilize with sound to influence customer purchasing and behaviour. As a result, these ideas are now being implemented in new retail business models.

- Stephanie Fischer, Global Retail Marketing Association

The feedback from our clients was great! We had a lot of positive reactions and in every feedback conversation Julian was mentioned as a very good speaker who was very inspiring. Even after the lunch break, when all congress participants are a bit tired, Julian woke up the people and inspired them about sound.

- Juliane Henze, Radiozentrale

To quote one of the attendees, your presentation was “outstanding!”

- Barbara Timmer, Phonak

On behalf of the entire agency, I want to thank you for the wonderful talk you gave us this week on the power of sound design. People around the office are still talking about how much they enjoyed your presentation.

- McKinney

Julian’s talk was a standout for the distinguished audience at our 20th anniversary event. The subject matter was literally ear-opening, and his demonstrations with sound were both enjoyable and enlightening, helping everybody to gain a whole new perspective on the sheer influence of sound.

- Mark Barber, RAB

Congratulations on a wonderful presentation that truly resonated with our audience of 11,000.

- Stephen P Stahr, MDRT

Julian was the keynote speaker during our annual Client Conference. Without exception, his presentation was voted as the best of the event. Julian has a wonderful ability to communicate and connect with his audience, and his hour passed all too quickly.

- BPC Banking Technologies

Awesome… At the risk of over-using the word yet again, I can’t think of a more appropriate use of it when applied to you! Your presentation was so insightful, truly brilliant, inspiring and full of heart.

- Lynne Grigg, The Designory

Julian’s keynote at our annual Panasonic Convention, which we organise for more than 1,500 editors and dealers, was very well received by all guests who attended his presentation. For me, his presentation was not only an inspiration business-wise, but it was also a good mixture of information – conveyed in a lively way – and provided great learnings for everyday life. His subject of sound is universal and relevant for everyone, and I would recommend him as keynote speaker for other opportunities within Panasonic and externally.

- Anne Guennewig, Panasonic

Julian Treasure made a great keynote at WORKTECH15 London and was one of our highest-rated speakers with wonderful content and energy. We’d love to include him in our future programmes.

- Caroline Bell, Unwired

Julian’s session was spot on, presenting new insights into sound effects and making us aware of the importance of sound in our daily lives and as producers of content. Feedback from our delegates has been unanimously positive. His session on our web-tv is the most sought after from this year’s conference.
