"Robyn Waters is my hero! My great passions in (professional) life are: 1) the premier role of bold design in differentiating products and companies, 2) the underappreciated role of women as consumers and leaders, 3) the necessity in crazy times for all of us to become brand You entrepreneurs, and 4) the abiding role of passion per se in achieving distinction and excellence. So, it’s simple. I know of no other human being beside Robyn Waters who scores the Perfect 10 on all four of these dimensions."
Tom Peters, Author of In Search of Excellence and Re-Imagine!
