Cultural vibrancy - The new essential insight for growth

In an increasingly cluttered brand landscape, growth starts with the ability of your brand to stand out, and create a meaningful connection with consumers. In this new world, the brands that win are those that create meaning beyond their category – by tapping into, standing out in, and contributing to the rich fabric of culture surrounding consumers. This ability to connect with culture becomes the new standard for success – and the formula for long-term growth.

In this session, Lynne will explore how brands can connect with culture, and showcase the brands that do, as well as providing a practical roadmap to cultural vibrancy for your brand.
