Seminar in Swedish


Helena Westin, Chairperson of Komm! Member of the board of IW

Why Humans, still, will make all the difference in our AI enhanced future. It’s all about communication. Since communication is everything and everything communicates.

A simple talk about the complex stuff like humans, brains, ‘digi-physical’ aspects of both-and, the power of love, the troublesome but necessary diversity, creativity, change, fear, polarisation and hate. And therefore the huge need to take responsibility for the omni present and mind changing communication.

Super simple AND deeply complex.

Protect your brand from pirates

Counterfeit sales are estimated to account for 5-7% of world trade and occure across basically all product categories and industries. Copies today are often virtually identical to genuine products so consumers are often unable to detect fraud. The sale of counterfeit goods is known to contribute to drug trafficking, money-laundering, and even terrorism, and the people involved are often subject to beyond poor working conditions.

From insight to impact

Niklas Dahl, Senior Strategist & Insight Director

Today’s brands act in an increasingly complex world. Brands need to weather the storm of an unpredictable time, with almost schizophrenic consumer behavior and survey fatigue. And as a new generation emerges and human behaviors change, brand must change accordingly and base their strategic decisions on new types of data and insights.

In order to thrive in this new world, we need to think beyond generic, sociodemographic segmentation. We need to walk in the shoes and get into the minds of the new consumers. Learn how, as our Insight Director Niklas Dahl describes a day in the life of Anna 21, a typical next gen consumer, and shares his keys to finding your set of research methods. Expect to challenge old truths and pave the way for new perspectives on consumer insights.
