I wanted to reach out to thank you for an amazing experience at the LOFT Brand Conference in Vegas!! Thanks again for being our keynote speaker! The teams thoroughly enjoyed you and your messages really inspired everyone! It’s been a pleasure to work with you.


It has been six months since we were together and I am excited to share with you that your time with us was not in vain, and that we are seeing lasting changes in behavior that are material and meaningful to our business. (Really!)


You blew it out of the park – it was inspiring, thought provoking, and incredibly entertaining. You had participants on the edge of their seats for nearly two hours, which we all know is no small feat. We imagined a great event, but this far exceeded our expectations.


Greg tenaciously pushed us to bring clarity to what’s most important now to meet our customer needs in the face of the business demands ahead. Whether helping our Supply Chain leadership tackle their global challenges or inspiring our Store Manager build great teams, Greg has taught us how the disciplined pursuit of less is better.
