In a future of the Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, and Artificial Intelligence, the ability of leaders and brands to go ‘seamless’ will distinguish the winners from the losers. This bespoke tailored presentation will provide:
- A futurephile’s guide to creating seamlessness for your brand and organization
- Showcase how to think and design to avoid the top frictive mistakes of companies in demise
- How to use seamlessness to create raving brand advocates and customer loyalty
- The Future of Branding
The old world of B2B branding is extinct. The age of the digitally distributed brand has dawned. To ensure your brand is amplified you must develop plausible future scenarios and narrative arcs that engage your audience.
Have you struggled to achieve the brand signal that your role demands? Is "corporate speak" getting in the way of connecting with tomorrow's customers? Has your brand transformed, yet you are struggling to get the word about the "Future Brand" out to customers & media?
Only when you have built their confidence in the unknown have you earned the right to transcend your client's organisations into that impending eco system - and guarantee their success. Only when their minds have been opened to the limitless possibilities will they consider you as their transformation partner.

At the US event, after two solid days, Ander has the entire audience on their feet and a room full of 130 people plus were more engaged than I have ever seen. His knowledge around trends in innovations, communication, and generations is unparalleled and the research he does into adapting his style cross-culturally was incredible. If you haven't heard one of his keynotes yet, add it to your bucket list!"

Anders delivered all the above and so much more, helping us kickoff one of our best conferences to date. He adopted his speech to the unique demographics of our audience, heeding all my recommendations and requests. His informative, energetic and quirky / entertaining style was a huge hit with our attendees. I highly recommend him for any speaking engagement and look forward to calling on his services again."

In all my dealings with Anders I found him to be extremely accommodating and helpful. Our timelines were incredibly tight but he was able to work within the parameters with no issue. He makes his presentations so applicable and relevant to the audience. I have been lucky enough to have attended a couple of Anders’ sessions and have come away each time with new strategies to try, which is otherwise rare and I am pleased to say the strategies have been effective!”
