My guest today is Allen Adamson; a world renown “brand guru” and sought-after industry commentator, who has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, CNBC’s Squawk Box and Fox Business Network. He is often quoted in The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Advertising Age, USA Today, the Washington Post, and Forbes, for which he also writes a column on brand strategy. Allen is also the Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Metaforce - a marketing and product consultancy which takes a multi-disciplinary channel-agnostic approach to marketing challenges.
He is also the author of Shift Ahead - a book that uses fascinating first-hand accounts and detailed case studies, to explain how the best organizations recognize when it’s time to change direction, and how they pull it off while bolstering their brands.
I invited Allen to be my guest on my show to talk about how brands deal with change. I wanted to learn what it means to “shift ahead”. And I was curious to get his POV on how the pandemic has changed the way businesses compete.
