Speakers A world-class mix of the industry's best and brightest.

Sandy is best known for leveraging Y&R’s proprietary BAV research and her own eXploring technique.

Her mantra is that if you want to find the truth that helps create unbreakable connections between brands and their consumers, you need to dig in, participate and take the time to understand them.
Sandy is a published author of One In a Billion: Xploring The New World of China, frequent contributor to industry media, and a regular speaker at marketing events around the world.
