Recommendations, brand experience and why people should like you.
9 out of 10 brands are no longer relevant, the customers either like you or don’t care. Let’s look at the brand experience as the only religion that will affect the relationship and the loyalty to you as a company, brand or partner to the most important employer tomorrow. I will bring all my experience and everything i learnt during my years in the mission to create interesting brands, products and services in a world full of equal alternatives. I have no proposal in my back pocket, no pitch. Just a big ambition for us as partners and colleagues to be prepared for a new conversation with our business. Communication is a business critical skill, and brand experience have never been more important.
