You Don’t Really Know Me…And I’m Your Customer

About the Presentation:

Do you really know your customers? It’s easy to say yes, yet many companies do not have a deep, emotional understanding their customers.

Kim and Doug will share how Narratology and Ethnography can be used to evaluate and enhance the narrative of your brand, increase its emotional connection, and measure and improve your CultScore.  And, in improving your CultScore – simultaneously improve revenue.
