                               Long-Term Trends

Presented by


Marlene Richey:

Writer, Consultant, Teacher and Advocate

One of the terms that is constantly being misused or misunderstood is “trends.” Predicting trends has become a billion dollar industry unto itself. People want to know what the future holds, what is the next “hot” fashion, color, internet sites, food, style, gemstone, tool, diet, wine. What is next, new and novel? In this presentation Marlene will give you a new way to look at long-term trends and how they can help you grow your business as well as influence your daily life. She will show you a new way to look at what is happening all around us and understand it more clearly. Discover some of the trends in the jewelry world and their impact.
