We had another chance to catch up with the lovely Shelby Walsh, who is President at TrendHunter and soaks up trends for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with her team at the Front End of Innovation Toronto and Consumer Insights Canada event last week.
Here's what she told us:
How did you find the experience at FEI Toronto & Consumer Insights Canada?
The experience at FEI Toronto was fantastic. The breadth of sessions everyone had to choose from was incredible -- from the Internet of things, to the mind/body connection and authenticity.
On top of the takeaways from all of the sessions, there was an impressive array of individuals in attendance, which made breakfast, lunch and networking breaks all of the more interesting.
