We First: How Brands and Consumers Use Social Media to Build a Better World

We First: How Brands and Consumers Use Social Media to Build a Better World

Speaking Topics
  • From "Me First To We First"

    What will be the ultimate impact of technology and social media on corporate brands, profits, and capitalism? With vast insight from years of global brand building, Simon Mainwaring provides the answer: They will do far more than cause minor changes in how companies advertise and market. In fact, the online world, mobile phones, and social media will literally alter capitalism completely, pushing it to transform itself from “Me First” to “We First.” Driven by today’s interconnected, engaged consumers who want a better world, not just better widgets, online tools and social media are creating a new dynamic between consumers and corporations. With their greater power to encourage or cajole corporations to become more socially responsible, consumers are slowly reshaping the entire private sector into an active third pillar of social transformation, working alongside governments and philanthropy to build a better world. This shift from “Me First” to “We First" capitalism is a message that every organization must heed.

  • How to Use Social Media to Build Community, Profit and Positive Impact

    For many social media is still a fad, misunderstood or ignored. Yet each day old business models fail and new leaders are born though social technology that connects people and what they care about. So where do brands begin, what must they know and how can they profit from it? This speech examines the fundamentals of brand definition, core values and effective communication across social media platforms. It reveals the need for brands to integrate purpose and profit if social media is to work for, rather than against them. And it provides best practices and case studies of Fortune 500 brands to give companies the confidence and action steps to become the social technology leaders of tomorrow.

  • Social Media: Today’s Most Powerful Instrument of Change

    Social media has arrived at a time of unprecedented need in our world. It enables not only consumers to contribute to causes more easily, but also for brands and consumers to becomes a third pillar of social change, in addition to government and philanthropy. Those companies that embrace this role will be able to leverage it to their own benefit as well as improving the lives of others. This speech explains exactly how they do that, whether they are a for-profit company, non-profit or government institution. In doing so it demonstrates how social media enables all participants to scale change to meet the crises we face with equal force.

  • Tomorrow’s Consumer: Mobile, Social & Deeply Engaged

    Today's business leaders must win over a new consumer. This consumer wants a better world, not just better widgets. This consumer is also armed with connective technology that is increasingly mobile. This technology provides instant access to information on a brand's social impact, including its carbon footprint, treatment of employees, environmental records and CSR programs. So how do brands win over such consumers? How do they manage a crisis situation? And what does social media technology mean for their business strategy and practices in the future? This speech answers all those questions by providing insights into the consumer mindset and social technologies that will shape business and determine who profits in the future.

  • Brand New World: The Future of Private/Public Partnerships

    The solutions we currently offer to global crises are not sufficient, whether the issue is poverty, clean water or climate change. As such, new partnerships are emerging to address these challenges that are simultaneously transforming business. Critical to every company is how they position themselves within this increasingly connected global community, and how they balance their necessary self-interest with the greater good of all. More than CSR, cause marketing or cause work, this is a fundamental recalibration of capitalism and our business future. This speech explains how company position themselves to benefit from such changes and what rewards they can expect.
