Mind, Body, Spirit with Dr. Kayte

Boy, was I nervous. Following the event, I met…

The Future of Work and Innovation is Tied to Personal Creativity, Productivity and Happiness

 What?…Me?…Distracted!?… Yes. You. Us. We are all distracted and have been increasingly so for a long time. But, this isn’t a story about distraction.

To explain more, I wanted to share a very special conversation with my friends at Gapingvoid Culture Design Group. I’ve had the pleasure to work with them on some of the most creative project…

Attention is a Currency: When it Comes to Digital Distractions, We are Spending More Than We can Afford

Attention is a Currency: When it Comes to Digital Distractions, We are Spending More Than We can Afford

“Our attention is traded as a commodity. The more of it we spend on any given platform or vice, the more hosts can sell it for.” 🤳 This was a hard message to take to a massive event rooted in the very platforms at the center of so much disruption. But, the more we know (and embrace) the devastating effects of the dark side (and underbelly) of  social media and digital distractions, the more we can take control. We can then…

The Purpose of Brand and CX in the Era of Human Experience

The Purpose of Brand and CX in the Era of Human Experience

It’s time to design experiences you want people to have, remember and share. Customer experience is the new marketing and customer experiences (what they have, feel and share) become the new “BX” (brand experience). More importantly, CX becomes a way of doing business that permeates and reshapes every facet of how and why companies operate. It’s about purpose, vision and meaningful engagement…not corporate mission and vision statements, taglines and creative campaigns. Image courtesy of RantandRave. About Brian Brian Solis is…
