WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM LUXURY?
Abstract
An ever more connected and empowered
customer drives decisions, where the value of
opinions is the new currency. Leaders,
brands, products and messages serve as
anchor points for entire believe systems
Therefore, demonstrating integrity in any form
of business is no longer an option, but a key
to survival and success. Luxury brands
operate differently, at the epitome of branding, fuelling dreams and aspirations whilst at
the same time building loyalty and generating above average profit margins.
Why so, and what can we learn from this very successful sector? This session explores
what a Luxury proposition really is, on which dimensions it differentiates and what
leaders, brands and businesses can learn from it.
Take a step out of the ordinary and get ready for a close look behind the scenes of a
world of glamour and sparkle. A world hidden to most, associated with high price tags
and a guaranteed aura of mystique: this session is a perfect way to expand your
horizon of known paradigms, create learning and stimulate fresh thinking.
