Formula 1, publishing giant Pan Macmillan and Canadian cannabis brand VIVO Cannabis will all be taking to the stage to share their own growth stories. Find out how these three brands have used insight as their guide to tap into new audiences and navigate emerging categories.

Formula 1

For Formula 1, this was about innovating – growing and changing to win the fans of tomorrow, whilst maintaining its heritage and its appeal to existing fans. Flamingo helped the brand understand the true nature of F1’s appeal, uncovering insights which have guided its strategy and driven impressive growth.

Pan Macmillan

Pan Macmillan wanted to move beyond the artistry of an author and position their work like any other commercial brand. Working with Boxclever, it’s been able to turn authors into brands in their own right. It’s equipped them with brand positioning and communications strategies that have resulted in a significant growth in readership.

Come along to our session as we explore the key to these brands’ success stories. Hear how they found new ways to truly understand consumers wants and needs and have used these as a springboard for innovation. We can’t wait to see you there.
