About the Author: Gareth Helm has over 30 years experience in marketing businesses all around the world, with half of this time working in the Leadership Team. Starting out as a graduate trainee with Unilever in the Middle East, he went on to be the marketing leader or advisor on a wide variety of brands in different stages of their life cycle.

Gareth was recognized as one of the top 100 most effective marketers in 2021 by Marketing Week and is a Fellow of The Marketing Academy, a community of over 200 senior marketing leaders globally.

Mathieu also discusses their equity partners, which includes Temasek, Morgan Stanley and most recently, SFI Investments (the investment vehicle which manages the wealth of the family behind AB InBev). In a wide-ranging conversation, Mathieu explains the important of committing their own capital to their transactions, the compelling opportunities in Europe's mid-market, capital allocation, sustaining an entrepreneurial culture and why a firm specialising in private assets choses to list as a public entity.

Stacey Andrade-Wells joined Liquid I.V. as Vice President of Marketing in January 2022. Before that, she spent over seven years at Procter & Gamble working on a variety of brands like Mr. Clean, Swiffer, and Gain. As a second-generation Colombian, she is passionate about driving diversity in all aspects of her work. This passion lends itself perfectly to her work at Liquid I.V., focusing on using hydration as the entry point to making wellness accessible for everyone.Liquid I.V. is a wellness company based in Los Angeles. In 2020, Liquid I.V. became part of Unilever's companies through acquisition. Their product lines are non-GMO electrolyte drink mixes designed to deliver rapid hydration utilizing a proprietary technology they call cellular transport technology. By increasing the absorption of water and other key nutrients into the body, the end result is 360-degree wellness. According to Stacey, the functional drink industry is expected to develop at a rate of 6.5% between 2023 and 2032 and reach a size of over 206 billion in 2023 alone. This growth means Liquid I.V. has to be continually innovating, and they always start by asking consumers what their needs are. Liquid I.V.'s go-to-market strategy focuses on getting communication right by nailing down who they are speaking to, what message will resonate with them, and making sure they reach them at the right time. Stacey calls this "mastering the intersection of creativity and medium."In this episode, Alan and Stacy discuss what Liquid I.V. is, the evolution of the brand, how inclusivity is a core part of its strategy, and the future of the functional beverage industry as a whole. They talk about the unique functional ingredients in the products Liquid I.V. sells, how this sets them apart from competitors in the marketplace, and how listening to consumers where they are the most honest (in the comments section) informs their product development. Liquid I.V. has carved out its place in the market by keeping a finger on the pulse of culture, advocating for clean water access for all, and being mindful not to frame itself as a drink mix exclusively for high-intensity sports athletes but as a way to improve hydration for everyone every day.In this episode, you'll learn:What does it mean to operate with intentionality in your go-to-market strategy?What differentiates Liquid I.V. in the marketplace?How is Liquid I.V. staying on the bleeding edge of in-person activations, sampling, and influencer marketing?Key Highlights: [01:45] Stacey's personal wellness and growth journey[04:10] Her path to VP of Marketing[05:55] What is Liquid I.V.?[07:20] What sets Liquid I.V. apart in the market?[10:05] Inclusivity is part of the strategy.[13:15] Trends with male consumers of wellness products[14:20] What is IN Liquid I.V.[19:00] The future of functional beverages[24:10] Go-to-market strategy [27:00] "If you try it, you buy it."[31:45] Growing up as a second-generation immigrant[34:45] Advice to her younger self[38:45] AI is an opportunity, not a threat.[40:00] Notice where consumers speak most freely.[41:10] The closing gap between consumers and brands Looking for more?Visit our website for links to resources mentioned in this episode and ways to connect with the guest!

Rogers has helped companies around the world transform their business for the digital age, working with senior leaders at corporations including Google, Microsoft, Citigroup, Visa, HSBC, Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Merck, GE, Toyota, Cartier, Pernod Ricard, China Eastern Airlines, NC Bank Saudi, and Acuity Insurance, among others.

And, to focus on workplaces for a second, we always talk about how when we discuss racism, we're talking about the SYSTEMS that run our society – but we also make it really clear that systems are made up of people, and so if we don't take the time to do some inner work, we won't be making changes to the systems that'll be meaningful and sustainable. That's why we love this discussion we're about to bring you, about reimagining inclusion in the workplace. It was really a fantastic action-oriented book that lays out practical things that you can do in the workplace to help uproot systemic racism, literally things you can start doing differently TODAY. And you know how much we love practical action-oriented things - it sort of reminded me of our own book's listen/learn/act framework! Plus, we are huge fans of Mita Mallick, who if you aren't following on LinkedIn already, you should be. So listen in, and if you like what you hear, go on and do two things - order the book Reimagine Inclusion, and then go tell someone at work about Mita's work so you can bring her into your organization and deepen the change! What to listen for: How Reimagine Inclusion is different from other books on DEI in the workplace Some of the 13 myths that Mita deconstructs How we should frame the role of white men and women in this work Where the cultures of companies seem to be headed right now About Mita: Mita Mallick is a corporate change-maker with a track record of transforming businesses.

When Nestle and Unilever introduced Maggi and Knorr bouillon cubes to West Africa almost 70 years ago, they took over an informal umami market run mostly by women. Before bouillon, we used fermented beans and seeds like iru and ogili, to deepen the flavours of our soups and stews. Today, both Maggi and Knorr market their seasoning cubes to Nigerian women as a means to the end of modern womanhood - a mythical destination where women can do it all in spite of the patriarchy on their necks. However, a closer look at the colonial histories that built these companies tells a different story - a story of marketing language co-opted and cherry-picked from feminist movements to advance corporate gain.
It was a trip to Kyoto in 2008 that led Vicky Tsai, Founder of Tatcha, to create a skincare brand based on Japanese beauty rituals. Vicky became so inspired by the beauty secrets and rituals of Japanese culture that she saw firsthand and how this was healing her dermatitis, so she left her job and started creating. Even selling her engagement ring to fund the launch. In 2009, she introduced the consumer to a completely different way to think about beauty, inside and out. Her journey developing Tatcha, scaling it, stepping down as CEO then coming back as CEO with Unilever, the company that acquired Tatcha is fascinating, authentic, insightful and I know that you will be glad you listened.

Chris Barron, General Manager Personal Care UK&I / VP Deodorants Europe at Unilever With nearly 25 years' experience in the industry, Chris is the General Manager for Unilever's Personal Care business in the UK&I, and VP for Deodorants Europe. He was also recently appointed as Deputy chair for the industry body the Cosmetics, Toiletries and Perfumeries Association. Chris started his career with L'Oréal on their management trainee scheme, before working both in their marketing team in London, and the International Development team based in the company's global headquarters in Paris. He first joined Unilever in 2006 and has since then worked in London, Chicago, and New Jersey on many of Unilever's biggest brands. Since 2017 he has been on the UK&I leadership team and is currently General Manager of the Personal Care business unit. He is also charged with running the program for the Deodorants business across Europe, Australia & NZ, leading the cross functional team for this €1bn business. Chris has significant experience in working on purposeful brands. He has worked hard to pioneer a number of initiatives on Hygiene Poverty, to address the fact that almost half of low-income households have had to go without hygiene products because they can no longer afford them. This has seen more than one million products donated to charity partner In Kind Direct over the last year, and he is now working on scaling the initiative across the industry. Most recently, on Unilever's Dove brand, he has been involved in launching Cost of beauty: A Dove film which invites people to join us on our mission to make social media a more positive place for young people. Chris is married to Lizzie and has two daughters, Alice and Lottie. He is a big rugby and cricket fan, but the Chicago Cubs will always have a place in his heart. Chris's top leadership tips are firstly, to ‘make it personal' with people by connecting with his team and broader stakeholders in a personable, authentic way. Secondly, his work during the pandemic as one of the leading manufacturers of soap and hygiene products in the UK&I informs his tip to wash your hands - more often than you think you need to and for longer. This is a habit from the pandemic we must keep, which would help to reduce the burden on the NHS by keeping us healthier and avoiding respiratory diseases. Hosted on Acast.

Moving from school to college or college to the first job marks significant milestones that shape our habits and preferences. This transition spawns the creation of new habits, both positive and negative, exemplified by choices such as smoking, drinking, and romance. These phases offer fertile ground for brands to establish themselves as part of these transformative experiences, thereby becoming ingrained in consumers' lives.The team at Nescafe used this insight to position coffee as the quintessential emblem of adulthood. As individuals traverse from one life stage to another, coffee emerges as a symbolic initiation into the world of grown-ups. Power of Emotional Engagement in Tech Brands Contrary to popular belief, technology-driven products are not devoid of emotion. Emotions find their place even in the realm of tech products, albeit in a different form. The key lies in crafting emotional connections that resonate with consumers.Successful tech branding hinges on establishing relevance, credibility, and trust. Ask Nestle: Personalized Nutrition for Moms Nestle's journey into personalized nutrition for mothers offers a striking example of how brands can address specific consumer needs and aspirations. Ask Nestle provided personalized nutrition plans to cater to individual preferences and regional dietary habits. This involved creating a content machinery that delivers scientifically accurate and cost-effective information. Lakme: Reviving the Essence of Seductive Beauty Revitalizing a brand's essence required a multi-pronged approach encompassing fundamental improvements, effective training, and compelling communication. This involved strengthening the brand's foundation by training beauty advisors and enhancing product knowledge. It also meant reinventing packaging and crafting impactful communication to resonate with consumers' emotions.

Welcome to a brand new episode of the ¿Quién Tú Eres? podcast, where we explore the conflict we often face between "professionalism" & being our authentic selves. This week's guest is Rachel Lowenstein. Rachel is the Global Head of Inclusive Innovation at Mindshare, leading strategy and innovation for how brands use marketing, media, and technology to reshape society for good. A respected industry thought leader, Rachel has worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, including Unilever and Booking.com. As an autistic woman, Rachel is a content creator on TikTok, LinkedIn, and Instagram to educate and advocate for neuroinclusion. Rachel has over 90,000 people in her community across platforms because of her unique perspectives as a creative leader who is autistic. In this eye-opening episode, we dive into Rachel's incredible journey of self-discovery, as she shares how her autism diagnosis became a catalyst for improving her mental well-being and unleashing her creativity in the workplace. Before receiving her diagnosis, Rachel grappled with a challenging concept known as "masking," commonly experienced by autistic individuals. She felt compelled to hide her true traits or behaviors to fit into society's mold of being "neurotypical," leading to feelings of being misunderstood and overstimulated by societal pressures to be constantly available. However, everything changed after her diagnosis. Armed with the knowledge of her condition, Rachel realized that she wasn't "crazy" for feeling the way she did. This newfound understanding empowered her to embrace her authentic self and unapologetically express her unique qualities. Now, she passionately helps others in the workplace and their daily lives to embrace their true selves, fostering a culture of acceptance and inclusivity.

WhatsApp is the new main street, high street, or shopping mall. Two billion consumers, twenty-four hours a day, and the app's new business API enables businesses to engage customers on that app, directly. The services we have grown to expect online, to show, to view a catalog and to talk to customer support, are what businesses should be gearing up to offer on mobile apps. Some businesses have been there for a while, some not as much. The online widget I now a chat, and the customer is expecting a response, at any time of their convenience. In this podcast, Gaurav Kachhawa, the Chief Product Officer at Gupshup, a high-scale, conversational AI platform.
