I recently attended a Telstra retail conference where Chris Riddell was a keynote speaker on digital. His talk was energising, thought-provoking and very real to the world we all live in. As the owner of a number of Telstra stores myself, I felt empowered to get up and do something different the moment I left the conference. Chris is absolutely revelant for anyone who works and lives in the modern world, and is a must for people wanting to set themselves up for success in the future! I can't recommend him highly enough.
