Marketing is famous for new trends every week; A meta-trend is something deeper, like tidal forces moving waves to shore
At a time when uncertainty reigns supreme, we find ourselves reaching for something to normalize the instability. This leads us to either throw ourselves into our work or sit in a state of paralysis because the usual outcomes of doing so have been gutted. Somewhere in the middle of that broad spectrum of reaction to the disruption of life as we know it, are the optimistic trendsetters who are not reacting but instead responding with meta-marketing tactics. These leaders of whatever tomorrow brings are exercising agility in its truest sense; which is to be able to think, understand and move quickly. This talk will focus on agility/meta-marketing (a seeming paradox) in this time of worldwide transformation.
