FROM FAST TO FIRST

Over the past 2 years, Anheuser-Busch has transformed their Innovation approach.  Coming from a slow follower with an incumbent mindset and a low share of innovation, A-B has embraced a mindset of putting people-first and delivering with speed and agility, helping to reestablish innovation leadership within beer.  Now in order to step change results again and deliver on A-Bs ambition to Lead Future Growth, they’ll need to move beyond Fast to also being First.

THINKING SMALL ISN’T SMALL AT ALL

After 20 years of aggressive price promotion and inconsistent messaging, one-time market leader Pearle Vision found itself struggling in the highly competitive optical retail landscape. Competitive pressure exacerbated an already pressing need to move away from aggressive discounting and identify a pathway forward for the brand, not only to drive market share growth but, as franchise-driven brand, to accelerate growth of their North American footprint. This session will explore the journey that led Pearle Vision back to prominence and the role a small emotional insight played in its resurgence as one North America’s premier franchise and health care services brands.
