Stories with a universal human truth at their heart have the power to cross borders and transcend language; but the more they account for local sensitivities, the better they can be baked into the cultural fabric of a nation. So how do brands tailor their stories to resonate with local cultures? And what inspiration can we take from original ideas born out of the lesser-known creative hubs? Exploring work that won at the Spikes Asia, Dubai Lynx and Eurobest awards, as well as Cannes Lions, in this session LIONS goes around the world to provide inspiration and insight on the creative ideas sparking brand growth with local communities and markets.

The Rhythm Of Life Is Disruption

Presented by J. Walker Smith, Chief Knowledge Officer, Kantar Consulting

Recorded on Tuesday 6 April 2021

The pandemic has been a practice year for the future. After a long period of relative 'moderation,' the year of unpredictability has brought into view that disruptions are the future. Discontinuities will be a feature of the marketplace ahead, not the exception. What will stick following the pandemic will be determined as much by future volatility as by the dislocations of the pandemic itself. In this presentation, Kantar Consulting Chief Knowledge Officer J. Walker Smith will provide a view of the consumer habits that will endure and the strong growth opportunities they will unlock, as well as a framework for understanding what will be new and what will not be new as we settle into life post-COVID.
