Jenni is an engaging and entertaining keynote speaker that has presented her research at leading industry conferences globally. Her new book Building Distinctive Brand Assets is a book for anyone with a brand, to help future-proof any brand's identity and learn which strategies work, and which don't. How Brands Grow Part 2, co-authored with Professor Byron Sharp, will change the way you think about marketing forever.

  • Fame and uniqueness as measurements for distinctive assets.

  • Is distinctiveness what makes people buy?

  • What all you need to do when thinking about brand strategy.

  • The key factors of mental availability.

  • How to create focus with limited resources?

  • When is it time to completely re-brand?

Important Quotes:

  • “Make steps to build it.”

  • “Not everything has to be a distinctive asset.”

  • “Clarify what’s important.”

  • “Bigger brands are not more differentiated.”

  • “Stand out in the retail environment.”
