‘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 or service is more likely to succeed when it is customised for the locality, consumer, country, or culture in which it is sold.

WHY IS THE PRACTICE OF ‘GLOCALISATION’ CENTRAL TO OUR WORK

No matter how you feel about the term “glocalisation,” the concept is becoming an intrinsic part of any organisation’s opportunity to stretch their presence around the world. Today’s global companies need a presence that resonates as consistent in every country, yet also provides an intentional, personal touch to each region.

It’s time to explore what it means to be a Glocal brand with our specialised services and tailored products.

Our expertise offers unique insights into the African market, particularly in the act of Glocalisation – a form of analysis that includes interpreting international trends for a local market, local-for-local and local-for-international markets.

What is 'Glocal Branding'? Think global, act local.
