How to develop strategic insights! Workshop in Denver July 24 & 25


In our work with agencies and clients we routinely see a simple truth: the best campaigns and the biggest account wins often are driven by the best strategic insights. And compelling insights are rare.

A data point is not an insight. It’s data.

Analysis of data is not an insight. Analysis is interpretation. It’s what you think about the data.

Insight is something else. It is based on judgment and often has emotion. Insights can be derived from your target audience, brand, competition or a combination of factors. Dunkin’s “coffee is fuel” insight led to America Runs on Dunkin. GS&P’s insight that the absence of milk is motivating led to Got Milk? How do you identify strategic insights that can drive that kind of success?

Join us in Denver on July 24 & 25 and you’ll learn a repeatable process to develop meaningful insights.
