My slides (that make even less sense without v/o) from Planningness 2016. Marketers and the folks who advise them obsess over the brand. But what if our obsession is wrong? What if how we think about a brand is ill defined? What if we need to rethink what we do to focus on the end result, not the means? This session will lay out my misgivings with how we obsess over the brand and give practical advice about how we might do things that are more valuable to people and businesses. (Also hit presentation gold getting Dr Strangelove, Bob Mould and David Bowie into one presentation).
