Trust is the World’s Most Impactful Economic Power

Economics is a social science. Keynote speakers on leadership and trust rarely touch on this, but they should.
After all, the economy is about people. For their annual flagship marketing festival Star Flow, the Times of India and its parent company, Bennett Coleman and Co, sought after global keynote speakers and marketing thought leaders to speak about the future of marketing innovation and transformation.

The client took a keen interest in the role of trust in this, as brand marketing and brand strategy rely on trust first and foremost. In line with this, the group’s various media outlets offered extensive coverage on people and perspectives represented at the event.
This included a feature in Economic Times, exploring the role of trust as the world’s most profound (and perhaps underestimated) economic power.
The various stories from the festival generated further follow-on media coverage with and for Philipp Kristian, including articles in Business Insider on how brands should approach strategy for engaging their audiences in the digital age.
