KATE ANCKETILL, CEO

GDR’s CEO Kate Ancketill is a highly sought after keynote speaker and consultant. Drawing upon her network of creative industry contacts, Kate provides credible insights on the technological, human and spatial innovations that will change the face of retail and hospitality over the next two to five years.

“INSPIRATION FROM UNEXPECTED PLACES”

“Meaningful innovation often starts with inspiration from unexpected places. I love to show how taking a concept from one sector, tweaking it and applying it to another can lead to world-beating bottom line success.”

– Kate Ancketill, CEO and founder of GDR Creative Intelligence

THEATRICAL AND HIGHLY VISUAL PRESENTATIONS

GDR’s senior consultancy team give over 300 presentations a year combined. These range from theatrical presentations to audiences in excess of 500 to small creative sessions with senior teams.

The fast-changing nature of technology and the constant innovation within retail and hospitality mean the world of trends and medium-term futures can seem complicated and difficult to relate to. GDR specialises in making the complex comprehensible, providing relevant and actionable insights to audiences in an entertaining, highly visual and inspiring way.

INTERNATIONAL INDUSTRY SEMINARS AND CONFERENCES

Our senior consultants and researchers have a wealth of experience, making them the highlight speaker at international industry seminars and conferences. Recent events include the Adobe Summit, Retail Week, POPAI and the Shopping Centre Management Conference.

GDR’s presentations combine carefully curated case studies that illustrate how new technologies and consumer behaviours will impact physical and digital commerce globally.

MEDIA OPPORTUNITIES

GDR is also available for media opportunities. We regularly provide our insights to television and radio broadcasts, trade and broadsheet titles. Depending on your requirements, we have a number of speakers with different backgrounds and business experience, so we can match the speaker, the content and the format to your specific needs.
