It is based on innovative, new (young) thinking about aging and what it means to be “old”, contains reasons why “70 is the new 50” as well as the implications for marketers in responding in order to leverage and build existing and new brand franchises

Implosion Quick View


The Internet is behaving in a way that is affecting everything we do. And it is making us think about things in a way we never previously thought. The Internet is contrary and the opposite of previous inventions. It has enhanced a reverse polarity of discovery in which seeking to know more about what and who we already know (think Facebook, Twitter, Google) is now just as valid as learning new things. This is the “implosion” that this book examines and the great impact it will have on society and business. The creation of the Internet, the most significant for many generations, is driving culture inwards instead of outwards (like many of history’s other prestigious cultural innovations). It is an implosive force, annihilating and creating simultaneously. And it will change forever the way society and business communicates. This book offers a controversial insight into where we are heading in the age of the Web.

The Content Revolution

Communicate what you stand for by telling a better story

Author: Mark Masters Marketing has changed more in the past 20 years than any other business discipline. So why are we relying on the same-old textbooks? Why do business owners still think that shouting louder than the competition is the answer to longevity? The old marketing way, where we were encouraged to spend more on advertising and to be seen, is dead. Marketing was about interrupting the masses, but times have changed. The only differentiator we have, as businesses, are the stories we tell.

The emerging alternatives to Western brands: From Istanbul to Indonesia

This book charts the emergence of a vibrant new type of brand from the emerging markets. This new type of brand is Made With – more concerned with design, community and fusion – rather than the classic Western brand that is “Made by” (by Coco Chanel or Steve Jobs) based upon the cult of the ego, icon, author and personality. Through following the inside story of these brands, the reader gets an insightful access into these newly emerging societies, their values and aspirations.

The region which this book covers is the Islamic Interland, taking in interviews with leading brand creators in locations including Istanbul, Beirut, Dubai, Jordan, Jakarta and many others across the Middle and Far East. In these pages you will meet the producer of a TV show that was a hit in 53 countries, Obama’s State Representative to the Muslim World, pioneers of the Arabic Web scene involved in $100m+ deals, social venture pioneers and activists, secular democrats and hijab wearing fashionistas, and a full cast of fabulous creative designers, entrepreneurs and artists in many different creative fields.

The art of corporate storytelling

Author: Robert Mighall A coherent story can make you better understood, believed in and trusted. So why is the business world only just discovering its power? This book draws on the psychology, history, and of course, the greatest works, of storytelling to show how modern businesses can communicate more effectively and creatively. Robert Mighall explains why story has a universal power to move people. He shows how to build a compelling core story, and apply that across a range of communications. And he demonstrates how trends in social media and content marketing are making this most ancient communication art ever more urgently relevant. What the corporate world needs most, story does best: establish the human connections upon which trust is build. And this book explains how.
