GLOCALISED DRIVERS OF CHANGE

The hybrid term 'Glocalisation' illustrates where local and global considerations meet in our work. Glocalisation is the concept that in a global market, a product orservice is more likely to succeed when it is customised for the locality,consumer, country, or culture in which it is sold.

TESTIMONIALS

I have had the pleasure and honour of working with Nicola for over 8 years. You never come away from a call or meeting with Nicola not feeling wowed by her breadth and depth of knowledge. Her forthright style and ability to hone into the important angle of the topic quickly but with supporting (and widely sourced) research never cease to amaze me.

She is always ahead of the curve. Once you accept you are out of touch and Nicola is entirely in touch with tomorrow’s consumer today, you can relax, stop worrying about your age and just learn.

You can be confident that Nicola will guide you and offer you enough insight for you to feel more secure in your strategy and in her ability to make all her knowledge and research relevant to your brand or company. Or, more importantly, where you are missing the mark, she does not try to make your strategy fit, she really empowers you to re-strategise to where consumer trends are taking us, so that you build a strategy better devised to succeed. I’d hate to face the future as a brand or business without access to Nicola’s thinking.

Nicola not only has vast knowledge in the field of trends analysis, having lectured trends at UNISA, The University of Johannesburg and LISOF but is able to use proven methodology to analyse and predict a trend trajectory. But while her strengths lie in the academic field, she matches that knowledge with grassroots connections with the influencers and drivers of pop culture in South Africa.

The importance of using trends as business strategy – the Flux Trends mantra – is only now being recognised as a crucial business tool. Nicola’s passion for trends, as well as her passion for knowledge transferral, will add an important layer to building a more credible and competitive industry for South Africa.
