Dr. Mary Manz-SimonDr. Mary Manz Simon combines her training as an early childhood educator, insights as a corporate consultant and children's market analyst, and experiences as a mother and grandmother, to provide a wide range of services and presentations to audiences and companies.

Her platform of practical advice, within a developmental framework, appeals to educators and parents who want real-time solutions. Simon's extensive work with companies and retailers in publishing, education and children's entertainment, give her a comprehensive timeline and perspective on emerging issues.

"I'm a hybrid," she explains. "I go beyond trend tracking to identify the implication and application of the shifting mindscape that impacts children, their families and the world in which we live."

With sales of more than 3 million books in English, hundreds of magazine articles and media interviews, Simon is, in the words of her son, Matthew, "a world changer."
