TEXT RON IN THE BUBBLE BELOW

"Ron is one of the most authentic and inspirational keynote speakers I have had the pleasure of working with. Ron kicked off the last day of the Next Generation Retail North America Summit with a 'fireside chat' and interactive audience Q&A. It was clear from our initial contact months prior, that Ron has a genuine passion for supporting, collaborating and inspiring his peers and the industry, demonstrated by his open communication, willingness to explore new creative options, and of course his excellent delivery on the day. Ron is a true leader within his space and someone we hope to be working with again soon. Thank you for your generosity Ron!"

Amy Darlison-Lee
Program Director, GDS Group

“Incredibly engaging keynote! Ron was the final speaker for the launch of the New Retail Leaders. His thorough preparation building up to the event, keenness in sharing and generosity led to a flawless
address. Ron had everything under control. His authenticity and genuineness captivated our audience of international senior retail executives. We’ve received great feedback for everyone! Ron is hands on about Retail and his understanding of the people working in this industry is second-to-none. His passion on both aspects is inspirational!”

Anaïs Veerapatren, PROXIMIS Global Head of Brand & Communication

“Ron’s message is clear, find happiness in the moment, and be your authentic self to excel in your accidental retail career. Ron inspired and enthused our group to look at where we are and own it. Take our experiences, be grateful for them good or bad and allow them to transform us into a better version. Life happens, but when we own it, we chart the course! Thank you, Ron, for sharing with us your inspiration and perspective.”

General Manager, Office Depot/Office Max
