We know consumers feel first, think second; that brands which connect do best
Our 5Drivers model identifies five clear states that underpin consumer behaviour. It helps brands understand the emotions they play to and where growth opportunities exist.
The most fundamental need, which makes us sensitive to disruption, change or loss
Led by passion, this is all about gratifying urges that go beyond basic needs
