Gerald Yarborough, Product Design and Development/Creative | Nickelodeon

“Cathey rocks! She came to Viacom and presented The Unbreakable Rules of Marketing. She taught us things we thought we already knew. And when she was done, we were able to apply them in a way that was simplistic and helpful. We love her over here at Nickelodeon and you’ll love her too. If you have an opportunity to bring her in as a speaker, don’t even think twice about it. Do it.”
