Centre For Marketing Excellence presents to you :

Many post-crisis consumers and most Millennial keenly differentiate between products and experiences they want to invest themselves into and necessities they want to buy as efficiently and cheaply as possible.  Gone are the days where shopping per-se and accumulating ‘stuff’ provided satisfaction and status.

Where does your brand stand on the continuum between ‘material’ and ‘meaningful’?  Is it where you want it to be?  Or might you be stuck in the middle? 

If your desired place is to be esteemed for both your product as well as what it stands for, then join us to look at and discuss what drives the sustained success of some of the best brands in this class – We call them ‘Ueber-Brands’ in our book.  Brands that go beyond.  

During this seminar you’ll learn:

How mission gives meaning and generates a strong buy-in. 
Why myths are the superior story and create magic.
About the power of balancing the longing and belonging.
How to un-sell to seduce.
About the need for ‘truth’ and ‘living the dream’ as the answer.
