Lead with Purpose

navigating crisis and the new reality

Anne will work in 2021 with organisations to navigate the crisis, recover and lead in the next normal. Businesses will need to revisit what their brands stand for, work on new value propositions to their customers, create new content and authentic messaging.


Purpose-led customer playbooks will be created to build out new customer decision and sales journeys that create trust, confidence, loyalty, engagement, new experiences and differentiation. Businesses that do this will be best placed to gain new business, develop new partnership models and drive innovations that meet emerging opportunities. 

the one thing that will never change

Purpose driven marketing and community marketing is powerful. Building a meaningful brand community means a loyal audience, advocacy, retention, referrals, sales and communication and needs strategy and expertise for success. 


Digital + Tech

The COVID-19 crisis has shifted the world to digital shopping and working. This shift is likely to be permanent so while brands should currently focus on maximising digital sales and capabilities, to survive and thrive in a the new post pandemic world, Anne will be recommending clients shift focus to virtual sales, digital trial offers and a multi-channel sales approach that provides the customer with an integrated customer experience.


Longer term, recommendations include integrating AI and data at scale, splitting mobile apps between service portals, top-of-funnel data generators and eCommerce engines and, in local retail, treating stores as experiential stages and local event-driven shopping occasion locations.
