By examining trends and focusing on the future needs of consumers, Connelly holds a position that most people dream of having. The way she incorporates creativity, insight, and passion into her work is what makes her a significant leader in the business world, and we cannot wait to learn more from her at PCBC 2014 when she speaks on How Generational Cohorts are Reshaping the Way We Live, Work and Play.
Connelly immerses herself in the ever-changing cultural ideas to determine what consumers might want to buy in the future. She dives into trends and brings incredible insight when she comes up for air. As a true inspiration in the business, Connelly approaches her research with a method she calls STEEP, where she recognizes social, technological, economic, environmental and political trends.
