LINKING YOUR BRAND PURPOSE TO SHIFTING CONSUMER NEEDS

What drives me most, personally, is to identify, clarify and create a deep understanding of the spirit of the time and then use this to assist people, brands, enterprises and organisations, in a meaningful way, taking the right steps going forward. When you understand the spirit of the time, you will see what drives people, and if you know what drives people, anticipating their wishes and desires will become the next obvious step.
