    6. 6. Last year <ul><li>Last year we told you about Ethi-fundamentalists Vs. Ethi-realists . </li></ul>
    7. 7. Last year updated <ul><li>Ethi-fundamentalists have been marginalised. They stand out from the crowd more and more. </li></ul><ul><li>Ethi-realists now have more choice and are confused because of it. </li></ul><ul><li>They don’t understand the contradictions. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Since then
    9. 9. But last year <ul><li>It was about being green </li></ul>
    10. 10. And this year <ul><li>It ’ s now about being good </li></ul>
    11. 11. Last year <ul><li>Green was cool </li></ul>
    12. 12. But… <ul><li>Now it ’ s real </li></ul>
    13. 13. Cool is easy - real is hard <ul><li>Cool is buying the right stuff. </li></ul><ul><li>Being real is about living in a better way. </li></ul><ul><li>This is what we think Nike should be promoting. </li></ul>
    14. 14. It’s not about products <ul><li>You’re using much better products. </li></ul><ul><li>But what about other stuff? </li></ul><ul><li>Lifespan, business ethics and selfless acts. </li></ul>
    15. 15. What others are doing <ul><li>Take a look at other brands. </li></ul>
    16. 16. Toms shoes
    17. 17. Toms shoes Ethical materials are a no brainer. The business model is ethical. But he started with a clean slate.
    18. 18. Ecover
    19. 19. Ecover Their product used to lag behind their beliefs. They’ve made an effort to be less ethical. This has made them more marketable.
    20. 20. Howies
    21. 21. Howies They want people to buy one thing, once. Their products are good. Their philosophy is great. They make mistakes in the open. They learn.
    22. 22. What society is doing <ul><li>Take a look at the people. </li></ul>
    23. 23. Free-range Nike <ul><li>People are beginning to </li></ul><ul><li>understand the consequences of their choices in the UK. </li></ul><ul><li>Recycling, eating organic food, consuming less, being less wasteful. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s both selfish and selfless. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of it is easy to do and some of it isn’t so easy. </li></ul><ul><li>What would Free-range Nike be? </li></ul>
    24. 24. Nike freecycle <ul><li>So you’ve created basketball courts from old shoes, but no-one knows about it. </li></ul><ul><li>Recycling shoes is as </li></ul><ul><li>easy as recycling glass. </li></ul><ul><li>If Nike had bins to recycle </li></ul><ul><li>trainers wouldn’t you recycle </li></ul><ul><li>everyone's? </li></ul><ul><li>But what does ‘recycling’ mean in this context? </li></ul>
    25. 25. Nike cobbler Let’s be honest – you want people to buy more than one pair of sneakers from you. But in the old days people only bought what they needed. Not what they wanted. We’ll stand by what we said last time: You have the power to make stuff fashionable. I want Nike’s but want to know that they can be fixed if needed.
    26. 26. You: <ul><li>“ but we ’ r e not talking about </li></ul><ul><li>Nike, we ’ r e talking about </li></ul><ul><li>Considered ” </li></ul>
    27. 27. Us: <ul><li>“ but Considered is Nike </li></ul><ul><li>- Nike is Considered ” </li></ul>
    28. 28. An example: <ul><li>Most people in this room know more than the average consumer. </li></ul><ul><li>But the average consumer uses Google to research their stuff. </li></ul><ul><li>If you Google ‘Nike’ you’d get 115,000,000 results. </li></ul><ul><li>If you Google ‘Nike Considered’ you’d get 208,000 results. </li></ul><ul><li>That’s less than 1% . </li></ul><ul><li>Considered should be at the top when people look for Nike. </li></ul><ul><li>It wasn’t and we stopped looking after 10 pages of results. </li></ul><ul><li>The average consumer probably has no clue you exist. </li></ul>
    29. 29. Nike, considered <ul><li>So what we’re trying to say is that we think it should be an </li></ul><ul><li>underlying philosophy that overarches your whole product range . </li></ul><ul><li>And we know you mentioned this last time - but from where we’re </li></ul><ul><li>sitting it still looks like a product range . </li></ul>
    30. 30. So… <ul><li>Don’t talk about it. </li></ul><ul><li>Just… </li></ul>
