Disrupting Disruption: How Technology Connects Consumers to Business Like Never Before. We live in a culture of change. Most companies are overwhelmed by the massive shifts that they have to make to their business models. Disruption is everywhere. Digital transformation is imperative. There are several new (and dramatic) realities that will force businesses to rethink many of their commonly held beliefs about what works in business today, and what the future may look like. Interestingly, this is less about the adoption of technology and much more about how consumers have become that much more efficient in this very different landscape. The result of this? Consumers have adopted technology in a way that has fundamentally changed how they buy and interact with businesses today. The world continues to change and challenge brands like never before. Is your business ready to disrupt disruption?

The Great Compression — Striving in The Post-Covid World: Your Future Present Roadmap on How Businesses Strive in a Post Covid-19 World. Ecommerce was 15% of all commerce prior to the global pandemic. It then soared to close to 50%. Where will it land? Does that matter? Probably not. The Great Compression is our new reality: during the short span of a few months, consumer's behavior fundamentally shifted. Companies are now forced to think less about the "experience" and more about how to get consumers to transact. Direct to consumer and online players are now forced to think about not just getting consumers to buy, but how to build a better shopping experience. We have everyone from pre-K children to our most elderly now fully digitized, online and ordering. How do we rethink many of the consumer’s commonly held beliefs about what works in business today, and what the future may look like? How do we build a successful business in this world where everything - in relation to digital - compressed so dramatically? Whether you are in the B2B or B2C space, and regardless of whether you are a small, medium, or large organization, Welcome to The Great Compression.

Virtually There: The Business of the Metaverse. What is the metaverse (or maybe, where is the metaverse)? Whether you remember virtual worlds like Second Life or can't understand the hours your kids (and friends) are spending in Minecraft or Roblox, the metaverse is the next iteration of the Internet. It's how we move from a one-dimensional screen to a three-dimensional, decentralized system developed with spatial technologies. And the business implications are already being felt today. It goes beyond Facebook changing their corporate name to Meta. It goes beyond the naysayers who think a metaverse requires a virtual reality headset. It goes beyond this virtual reality real estate boom and land grab that is taking place. There's much more to this, and it all signifies a level of importance and size that organizations can no longer afford to ignore. Web3 may be the starting point for a new type of connectivity, but it will all happen in the metaverse. The metaverse is new, but the hype should not be dismissed. The metaverse will build new businesses, uncover new business models, bring people together in new and fascinating ways, and enable even more connection to more diverse voices and people. Pico Iyer said: “We don’t travel to move. We travel to be moved.” The metaverse will move you (and your business).

The Long Tales: How to Build Nurture and Mature a Better Content Marketing Strategy. Content marketing and brand storytelling has matured. Has your business done the same? If you're thinking about how to build, nurture or mature a content center of excellence, this is for you. A strong center of excellence creates true value and lead generation. Most companies fail at content marketing to build their thought leadership and direct response strategies, because they are chasing content formats that don't fit their brand experience... or they don't know where to start. Mitch Joel has created a simple and practical strategy to help your business define its true Content Centre of Excellence. Why do this? Focus, growth, sales, customer loyalty, better consumer experiences and really getting your ideas to spread.

Ultimate Customer Experience: Customer Experience Is the Next Battleground. Most businesses struggle to understand the nuances between your brand, the brand experience, the customer experience and the chasms in between (and how to cross them). Find out what creates meaning, a better customer experience, and how to be proactive (instead of reactive) when it comes to building a better brand. What is your story? How can you tell it in a more compelling way? Which brand stories get heard? What does your customer truly experience when they buy from you?
