Navigating Covid 19: Survival, Adaptation & Recovery

with Les Binet

Much has been written about how brands should respond to COVID-19, mostly recommending we learn from previous recessions, maintain spend, and hold our course. But the Covid Crisis is not like other recessions, and lessons from the past may not always apply.

This talk shows why the current crisis is so different, and how that affects your strategy. It shows you how to tailor your marketing plan to the constraints of supply, demand and competitive context, and how to adapt it as the crisis evolves. And it discusses why thinking like a start-up may provide some useful strategic clues as lockdown is lifted.

Government, Society and Public Affairs in the New Normal

with With Joe Carmody & Feargal Purcell, Edelman

There is much speculation as to what a “new normal” might look like when the worst effects of this pandemic do eventually pass, and when it comes to Public Affairs that new normal is probably already here.

Now more than ever the line between citizen and consumer is becoming blurred. This has significant implications for marketing. Arguably everything is now a public affair. Every decision a business makes, every direction a government gives is being done in the context of survival, the survival of businesses across the country and the survival of our social fabric as we currently understand it.

with Mark Ritson

The coronavirus crisis is testing us all, but marketers need to think long-term and keep building their brands, protecting their staff and honouring their values.

But the practical reality of global economic trade means that we need to market now for the good of all mankind. Join Mark Ritson in the discussion of our role in marketing during and after the challenge of COVID-19.

Today, consumers are more informed, more aware and more discerning when it comes to how they think about their purchasing and consumption.

Electric scooters, vaping and even worries about gun control are now influencing our choices in Ireland. As marketers, it’s imperative to understand the drivers behind the behaviour of our consumers.
