In a time of global uncertainty: Has our understanding of our consumers become obsolete? Our upcoming Spotlight Series webinar will feature a fireside chat between the author of “Decoded: The Science Behind Why We Buy” and behavioural expert Phil Barden and Stravito’s own Thor Olof Philogène on the topic of consumer behaviour in light of a global crisis. You will hear about Phil’s research into how the pandemic is affecting consumers, looking at what their unmet needs are as a result of the lockdown.
In a thought-provoking and informative discussion you’ll learn about the concept of “unchanging man”, how a great shock to the system can change motivations and what the implications and opportunities are for brands looking to build marketing and communication programs that resonate with consumers in the current climate.
