My Favorite Re Word:


In my experience across multiple brands, categories, and companies, I've noticed that most times the answer has always been right there in front of us. But we lacked that organizing principle or that connecting tissue that helped everyone see where they fit on the path forward.

It's our job as researchers to not only find the answer but to help put in place communication and activation strategies that energizes everyone to go after the vision with vigor!
