Don’t for one minute think that this will show you how to do your job. Carmen will blow you away with info from verticals in other countries that are yet to be brought to SA.
With her high energy, passion and excitement for what she does, there is no one better to give you a personalized run down for you and your business.

I have come across few presenters but Carmen stands out. She has great energy and motivates the team she is presenting too. In terms of information sharing is very in-depth and future trends around the world. I would definitely recommend her to my industry peers.

Carmen is a Superstar! I had the pleasure of sitting alongside Carmen on a topical mobile panel in 2017. Carmen brought many intellectual, thought-provoking perspectives to the table, challenging the audience to really think outside the box. Having the opportunity to work closely with Carmen during this time allowed to see her passion and the tenacity that she possesses-it is truly inspiring. Carmen is a leader in her field and is definitely one to follow.

Carmen and my paths have crossed many times since I joined SA Digital and Mobile industry in 2007. Her energy and enthusiasm for all things mobile are infectious, her energy levels and motivation to take others along on the digital journey are something else. This does reflect in her courses and talks which are insightful and entertaining at the same time. She is a great partner to have in your network and I’d definitely recommend getting in touch with her for any requirements you might have in this area.

Having recently worked with Carmen Murray on a key note address she gave some senior personnel at Makro, Game, Builders and Masscash, I would like to recommend her for a number of reasons. Carmen is not just professional and approachable, she is an expert in her field and open to suggestions and opinions. In a world of constant connectivity and the need for companies to engage with their customer unlike any other time in history, I would recommend any business to work with Carmen in bringing not just thought starters but building a strategy for the ‘Connected Consumer’ #theconnectedmarketer. Her natural ability to present with authority at same time engaging with her audience to drive greater inclusion is impressive.
