Virtual Keynote Speech Topics That I Customize

Brand Purpose vs. Brand Hypocrisy: How Your Company Can Truly Help the World
(30 minutes – live or virtual talk)

The corporate hypocrisy of Fearless Girl does not stop there. I go through examples of several companies claiming to do “cause marketing” or “brand purpose” but are completely hypocritical in their own business practices. And then, I will show what everyone here can do to truly help the world instead. We should focus on real cause marketing and brand purpose — not brand hypocrisy. (Example text and deck.)
