On Branding: ”Upon return from their holiday, have you ever heard your friends say: ” We stayed at a wonderful hotel, they had such nice letter heads and brochures!”
On Marketing: ”There is no such thing as a mature market, – only tired marketers!” ”Most marketing managers have left the board room to become managers of one way-communication. The only marketing concept that appears to survive these years is their title”!
On innovation: ”Thinking out of the box is not about creating odd patterns with matches. Its about leaving the office and seeing the world as it is. Go and see the place where your future has already arrived!”
