Marketing in the Trump Age: New Rules for a New Reality
No matter where you stand politically, there’s no question that the environment for brand owners has changed in the Trump era. Marketers must address a whole new set of risks and opportunities in the heated public debate around the social and political issues of the day. The stakes have never been higher in an arena where consumers, associates and other stakeholders are watching brands’ actions—and inaction—and judging them relative to their values and expectations. All this comes at a time when consumers are already gravitating towards brands that demonstrate a sense of authenticity and purpose. Peter Horst will examine these new realities and risks, and discuss ways brand owners can approach navigating this new environment.

Global Sentiment of the US and Trump
Global brand value has already been impacted — at least in the short term — by the Trump presidency. Take a step back to better understand global sentiment of the U.S. and Trump: Why was Trump elected? If this election had happened on a global scale, what would have been the outcome? Which countries and which groups of people would have voted for Trump? What does it mean for the future of globalization and consumption? BAV Consulting, with our partners, U.S. News & World Report, will reveal the answers to these questions from our Best Countries work, including the largest and most comprehensive ranking of countries.
