Without doubt, the COVID-19 crisis has shown that consumers’ purchase behaviour is changing. In these uncertain times, customers and consumers are more than ever looking for reliable and trustworthy brands. In our web session, we will explore how we can learn from other industries to support the automotive sector in building and maintaining strong brands in times of crisis.
While automotive brands are not immune to the acceleration of massive shifts in the society, some fundamental principles of brand growth, grounded in how humans make choices, remain true today and beyond. Building strong brands is a fragile combination of art and science in building high perceived performance and emotional bonds with people. It’s also about managing efficient activations with a sound portfolio strategy.
The web session will also cover a different important aspect for the sector: The automotive industry was for a long time the industrial champion of the European economy. Recently, it has come under immense pressure to review its business model. Slow pace to adjust to new global challenges and the diesel crisis cost the industry its reputation among political decision makers. The industry is now under increased scrutiny and must invest into its reputation to regain the trust among elite stakeholders.
Here are the speakers for the web session:
Dr. Robert Grimm, Service Line Leader Public Affairs & Corporate Reputation
Benoit Tranzer, Global Service Line Leader Brand Health Tracking
Laurent Dumouchel, Chief Growth Officer Brand Health Tracking
Alain Klapisz, Groupe Renault VP Customer & Market Intelligence
Alexandre de Saint-Léon, Global Service Line Leader Automotive & Mobility Development

Web-Seminar: How to win consumers over through health benefits in the yogurt category
Today it is challenging to understand consumer behaviors and drivers when it comes to their buying habits and needs. That is why DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences partnered with IPSOS to conduct qualitative consumer research to understand better the consumer drivers for choosing yogurts with additional health benefits, the ingredients that relate to these health benefits and how consumers relate to them. In this web seminar we will take you through some of the results of this study and introduce you to some new concepts and ideas to be able to answer the consumer demand for additional health benefits in yogurts.
Web-Seminar: Auto Purchase & Usage Behaviours. The Impact of COVID-19
Buying a vehicle is a highly considered decision. In this period of COVID-19 stay-at-home mandates, personal driving is way down and vehicle sales is virtually at a halt in many markets across the world. The restrictions are or will be lifted slowly and car manufacturers need to better understand what the “new normal” of automotive use and ownership will be.
