The Empowered Consumer

You’ll never look at your relationship with customers in the same way again. Anat Baron guides you through a world where brands are no longer in control. Consumers are in charge —and what they’re looking for has changed dramatically. Empowered consumers are more interested in value than price. And they aren’t just looking for products and services to buy — they’re seeking meaningful experiences. Anat Baron examines this brave new landscape, translates the trends and brings it all back to building relationships. She provides strategies to help your organization communicate more openly and authentically, engage in two-way conversations about your brand, and have the agile leadership and transparency it takes to react in real time.

Women: the World’s Largest Emerging Market

That’s right. It isn’t China. Or India. Today, women control 75% of household spending in the U.S. By 2028, 75% of discretionary spending worldwide will be controlled by women. Anat Baron explores how this substantial opportunity is hiding in plain sight – both with consumers and as an untapped resource within your own organization. Sharing real world examples from her successful career in multiple male-dominated industries, she highlights how she shifted male-centered perspectives, expanded market share and increased profits by focusing on women. She also offers current examples of organizations that are building authentic relationships with women by discovering what they really want. This eye-opening presentation separates myths and stereotypes from reality and shows you how to harness the power of women and benefit from their growing economic impact.
