“Brianne continues to be an invaluable resource as we navigate the global expansion of legal sports betting. We initially engaged with Brianne because of her subject matter expertise in responsible gaming practices, however, we quickly realized that her deep industry knowledge, in the US and internationally, could assist with multiple verticals of our business.

Her industry contacts are second-to-none and she is the first consultant I recommend to stakeholders, whether they are looking to engage government decision makers or wanting to learn more about the global sports betting ecosystem. She is truly a one-stop-shop for all gaming matters.”
