Topic Presentations

We are entering a new era of consumerism, one being shaped by a global pandemic. This is breeding a different type of consumer, one who’s emotions and spending habits are shifting. For the first time in a long time, we’re being asked to sit in collective stillness - to reflect, to play, to connect. This has gifted us the space to transform, to self actualize. It is the brands that serve this transformation that are outperforming their peers and will continue to thrive, giving rise to the “self-actualization economy”. In this mind-bending talk, Lindsay illuminates a growing trend, its business implications and her personal journey towards it.

Amidst  a global recession, the digital landscape, and the maker’s movement, we are witnessing disruption in the world of retail. The stay-at-home economy is emerging, Consumers are doubling down online. Competition for the consumer’s dollar is higher than it’s ever been. Adaptation is a must. How can businesses pivot to maintain relevancy and recession-proof their models and what does it all have to do with fundamental human needs? Lindsay explores the retail landscape through the lens of evolutionary psychology and opportunities to flourish within.

The online revolution has enabled anyone and everyone to offer their products & services with just a click of a button, resulting in an army of authentic, innovative start-ups emerging into the mix.

Through a combination of stories, insights, and play-doh(!), Lindsay explores the democratization of the retail landscape, shifting consumer expectations and opportunities for brands to thrive.
