Marian has identified and taken public such concepts as Metro-sexuality, Singletons and Globesity. As one of the world’s leading trend spotters, she lives and breathes what’s trending now to help clients position themselves for what’s next. She brings to her presentations more than a decade’s worth of experience as a consumer researcher and trend analyst and not only delivers practical insights, but she also offers audiences an accurate glimpse of the near future.

How she presents

Her powerful presentations are well prepared and entertaining.

Marian Salzman is considered as one of the world’s top five trendspotters. She is the CEO of Havas PR North America, an entrepreneurial agency ranked ninth in the world. Marian was responsible for some of the most famous consumer campaigns and has executed thought leadership, reputation management and social media programs around the globe. Before heading Havas PR, she was CMO at Porter Novelli, CMO at JWT Worldwide and CSO at Euro RSCG Worldwide. She received many prestigious awards, including the the PRWeek’s 2009 PR Innovation of the Year award.

Marian lectures worldwide on various topics, from trends to personal branding to gender and generational differences among consumers. In addition to her closely watched and widely reported-on annual trends forecast, plus her books she has authored or co-authored, Marian currently blogs for the Huffington Post, and CNBC, plus various company blogs, among others. Her four-part series on the brain for HuffPost won a 2011 Bronze SABRE for Speech or Bylined Article and an honorable mention from the PR News Platinum PR Awards. In 2012, Marian was a PR juror for the CLIO Awards, part of the international PR jury at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, and one of the final judges to select candidates for Venture for America, a program for future entrepreneurs modeled after Teach for America. She now sits on that organization’s board of directors, in addition to the board of the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
