“Brands should do their part in making the world a better place where possible”
Sara Zaidi

In this BrandsTalk episode I am in conversation with Sara Zaidi to talk about the 200 year old corporate brand RB that houses many different brands – such as Finish, Calgon, Durex, Lysol, Harpic, Cillit Bang, Air Wick, and Vanish to name a few – in the consumer health and hygiene sector.  


Sara shares insights …

💡how RB uses emotional appeals in communicating with customers

💡what the current and future trends are in terms of technology or tools marketers use to communicate with their audience.
