REVIEWS

Today we know that neurobiological reactions to external stimuli drive people’s preferences, actions and emotions or, in simple words, people’s behaviour. Living Brands leverages multidisciplinary scientific branches with the support of the top world research institutes, ultimately culminating into a wheel of motives. While individual preferences and trends can quickly evolve, human motives have deep roots and provide a longer, solid base for the establishment of corporate vision and strategies… it is a must read and explore approach.

Dr. Paolo Arancio, Global Head of Strategic Innovation Partnership, Nestlé Skin Health

Living Brands is, simultaneously, deeply unsettling and deeply reassuring. The book effectively breaks established models on brand thinking. By rooting human behaviour in the more predictable neurological reaction, Constantinos Pantidosunshackles brands from the tyranny of narrow psychographic segments and salami-sliced positioning platforms.Must read for anyone invested in creating brands.

The Cult of Service Excellence

In a quest to maintain market position and improve profits in today’s fast-paced, competitive market place, organizations need to become more and more customer driven. A customer-driven organization maintains a base of loyal customers by recognizing that customer service and product quality are fundamental to maintaining a competitive advantage. These organizations have incredibly strong, inspirational and charismatic leaders with strong culture and behavioural norms or even rules that guide everyone how to function within the organization. They think that their way is the only way!
This book explains how the environment and culture created in some of the world’s greatest customer-focused companies resembles the mindset created by a cult. It is by understanding the “anatomy” of such companies that we, too, can embark upon a journey of customer excellence within our companies.

Minifesto

We live in times of great change. Or so we are told. Headlines blast messages about clashes between tribes, civilisations, political factions, East and West. We are told that unless we abstain from eating meat, flying or enjoying other modern amenities, the planet is doomed. We live in times of trouble. Of crossroads. Of signs of decline. We live in special times. In turn, future thinking is often reduced to people having opinions about other people’s opinions.
As opposed to manifesto, in manifesto many small ideas are created to inspire one person, your- self. By sharing the vision of the future, we can avoid telling stories and instead strive to surround ourselves with as many strange, conflicting ideas that we can in order to immerse ourselves in future possibilities and possible futures. Incorporating recognisable examples, Minifesto will illustrate how the world changes when a single individual does something new.

The Prisoner and the Penguin

The power of a good story has long been recognised. It seems that, as a race, we humans love a good story. But stories aren’t just for pure enjoyment - they have long been a powerful tool for teaching. This book is an alternative to traditional marketing handbook. Rather than a textbook, it is an enjoyable “story-book” that brings to life some of the key principles of marketing in an easy-to-read, accessible form. Some of these stories are quite remarkable and almost unbelievable; but all are true and remind marketers and businesspeople that the best marketing is something which people tell others about and retell over many years.
