Furthermore, how do you build consumer loyalty in a world where products and technologies are copied almost instantly and brands struggle to differentiate themselves?

In this conversation, J Cornelius and Udaiyan Jatar (“UJ”), Founder of Blue Earth Network, discussed what it takes for an organization to be truly different, how to fight against the rapid product commoditization that is occurring in the 21st century, and the most important factor in establishing brand affinity.

  • The two forces of differentiation
  • How do you sustain your differentiation in shifting market conditions?
  • The positive impacts of aligning your front and back office
  • The “Iceberg Analogy” behind product design
