    I work in the federal government and found this speaker to be one of the best for me and the work that I do. Audrey was well versed in the government culture and provided helpful insights as to how to emulate her success at CFPB. Also loved to hear her humor when talking about her past work at Disney, Comedy Central and showing her belief in the power of branding via the South Park slide. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2012/09/07/who-leaves-comedy-central-to-work-for-the-government/
