About Minter Dial

Expert and Speaker on Branding and Digital Strategy

MInter Dial - Myndset digital strategyAfter a long and successful international career at L’Oreal, Minter Dial created The Myndset Company in 2009 to help senior management teams to adapt to the new exigencies of the internet-enabled marketplace. Minter has worked with world-class organizations to guide them – and their executive teams – by improving their digital literacy and catalyzing a change in mindset, necessary to adopt the new digital landscape.

Thought provoking and inspirational are key for speakers at the Adobe Summit and Minter met both of these criteria. Amongst a roster of over 100 speakers, Minter has consistently been rated in the top 3. Each year, 90% of speakers are brand new but Minter is one speaker we keep inviting back because of the quality and freshness of the content. I highly recommend him if you are looking for innovation and thought leadership.”
