You are Treating Your Brand the Wrong Way | Interview with Nicola Mendelsohn

While in Cannes, Gary sat down with Vice President of Facebook and Instagram for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Nicola Mendelsohn. During the conversation, they talk about the biggest mistake of many brands being that they only have one voice for all the different audiences they try to reach. He emphasizes the importance of having multiple voices that are authentic for your brand so you can reach and resonate with different audiences more effectively. This humanizes the brand and makes it easier for people to associate with it.
