The pandemic has highlighted the value we place on our most essential brands. But this gut response in times of crisis is just the sharp end of an underlying trend shaping how brands are built and how customers engage with them. Our research shows that the most successful brands are built on the dimensions of connection and progress. We call them Go-to Brands. Join us as we share this new standard for building brands that drive growth and resilience.
Developing new offerings that customers will predictably purchase and use only seems to get more complicated as life remains far from normal. At the same time, changing behaviors and evolving priorities generate new growth opportunities for innovative leaders. Join us as we unpack the essentials of converting unexpected change into an unprecedented advantage. The key is to understand the deep motivations that drive behavior and preference – in short, master the theory of Jobs to Be Done. By understanding the jobs that your target customers are struggling to perform, you’ll discover how to systematically design better products, services, and relationships to create – and capture – outsized value.

As we enter into a recession, businesses are rapidly adapting to a potentially catastrophic drop in customer demand. As such, many face the imperative to lower costs while still maximizing opportunity. Most companies have a large portfolio of brands that is complicated and painful to change, but it can also represent a tremendous source of untapped value. This session will reveal the art and science of optimizing your brand portfolio with practical tools to evaluate your current brands, identify opportunities to drive profit, and rapidly implement changes.

At their best, brands don’t just deliver information— they build relationships. But time and again, we see companies struggling to stay on message, instead of connecting in-the-moment. Today, a strong Brand Voice is more than a list of adjectives. It’s a clear, inhabitable personality that flexes to meet the demands of an ever-changing world and needs of even-faster-changing consumers. Join us as we outline the opportunity for growth and loyalty-building through a differentiated and responsive voice—and arming communicators with the same instructive and expansive guidance that we see in visual identity work.
