Breakfast at trnd's
The morning of the 21st October was rainy and gloomy, but at The Fable Bar in central London the scent of coffee was welcoming marketers to a Collaborative Breakfast, hosted by trnd in collaboration with The Drum Network and ORConsulting.
Rebekah Mackay Miller, MD of trnd UK, kicking off the morning by challenging the audience to scrap the word consumer and invite their loyal customers and fans as co-marketers.
First key speaker Oliver Mayer, international analyst at trnd, presenting case studies of what WOM can achieve for a range of different brands and sectors. Brand awareness, increased sales, product awareness and even an increase in UGC (up to 10 times in some campaigns) are just some of the benefits of adopting a collaborative approach to marketing.
Business psychologist Aedrian Bekker from ORConsulting enlightening the attendees on the perspective of the consumer – what is it that motivates them to collaborate with brands?
After two insight packed seminars the event moved on to its interactive session: a mini Collaborative Marketing campaign from a consumer perspective.
Marketers stepped into the shoes of their consumers, testing prototype chocolate bars and discussing their package design and flavours.
Wrapping up the event with a panel discussion, our experts covered the most common questions evoked when introducing Collaborative Marketing to brand managers and marketers.
