COVID-19 took everyone by shock and surprise. The devastating effects of a health crisis were well documented by several global institutions and data-repositories.
Abundant narratives flooded the canvas. Brands began grappling with new strategies to engage meaningfully with their consumers. WARC declared the winners and the losers quickly. There were short-term and long-term winners and losers in this pandemic according to their latest 2020 recession playbook. What was a matter of inspiration and encouragement for all was the resilience and perseverance that helped some categories and brands surge ahead of the rest. Some saw “opportunity in the chaos”.
A set of lightening talks curated by our founder for the MRIA touch on critical elements of the COVID-19 landscape: brand launch, competition, profitability, and civic consciousness, to arrive at helpful takeaways that detail how brands of the future can win in the post-pandemic world.
