Stacy Bingle: Consumer Trends Consultant


Looking beyond the data and into what motivates consumers is key in understanding their behavior. I truly enjoy having discussions that explore how people interact, what influences them and the overall cultural shifts that are taking shape globally. Companies must have those discussions in order to get to the next level of thinking. It’s absolutely vital to crafting a winning campaign, product or brand.
