Stern supported us for the most prestigious main stage presentation ever given by a Cognizant executive (Money 2020, Oct. 2017) and a follow-up keynote at InVest (July 2018). They bring innovative and creative concepts, developing visually engaging presentations that are perfectly aligned with the story we want to tell and how we want to reflect our brand.”
