Steven Cook, CMO | Global brand builder, innovator & speaker @ P&G, Coca-Cola, Samsung Electronics, FanKix.com & FortuneCMO.co | CMO Exchange, Berkeley CA

Sense Worldwide's Jeremy Brown, CEO, and Brian Millar, director of strategy, got the conference rolling with a bit of Jiu-Jitsu on the “consumer-centric” conference theme during their “Marketing Transformation Strategy: Becoming A Consumer-Eccentric Business” keynote. Sense Worldwide seeks out extreme consumers, what some might label “eccentric and out there” consumers, for some of the world's most innovative companies. We’ve all seen these kinds of consumers during our marketing careers; we just did not pay much attention to them. Jeremy and Brian shared some of their eccentric adventures, as well as the unexpected insights and results their approach has generated for their Fortune 1000 global clients.

Becoming consumer eccentric: How witches, dominatrixes and ultramarathon runners can transform your business.

Sense Worldwide seeks out extreme consumers. We run communities of extreme athletes and sports fans for Nike. We've sourced dominatrixes to help transform blister products, and Brazilian transsexuals to transform the way depilation cream is marketed. For an air freshener manufacturer we brought in a Pagan witch. Average consumers tell you what you already know. They bring validation. Extreme consumers can give you a whole new way of thinking about your category. They bring inspiration.
