Organised by Creative Culture

This webinar will highlight that local cultural insights are a vital part of the innovation process and are key to it's success globally.

Innovation is a key component of any organisation at various points of their life cycle to remain relevant in the long-term, whether they are looking to further engage current customers or reach new audiences.

But in a global and cross-cultural environment, this isn’t an easy feat. Companies might come up with a great product concept that answers needs in their core/ home market, but how can they ensure:

  • It resonates in other countries?
  • It fulfils a real need locally?
  • It aligns to local customers’ expectations?
  • They understand their local audiences and behaviours in the first place?
  • And if not, how do they approach said innovation or strategy in a different light?

These answers are all found in granular cultural insights and understanding, which are too often overseen. In a world where tech and digital are dominant, brand owners are overwhelmed with data and have forgotten how to truly read and understand the human dimension of people and audiences. Without this level of cross-cultural understanding, companies take the risk of aborting a project and long-tail of investment when it could have been a viable project in the first place.
