RECAP: Learning Journeys #1 and #2 
Customers of the Future

The Globalization and Politics of Food, Wine and Fashion

"A desk is a dangerous place from which to view the world."--John LeCarre

Summit Weavers Recap and Reports: business observations, fact-finding mission results, and long-range implications of these economies The Learning Journeys developed for the Customers of the Future meeting offer a rich array of experiences, company visits, and conversations emblematic of changing customer relationships and the new (or transformed) business models emerging in response.

We will explore the question -
Has the customer changed, or is it our understanding of the customer that has changed? -- Chris Riley, Wieden & Kennedy

We'll have a first-hand look at the customers, producers, and purveyors of the future which will set the stage for subsequent conversations designed to deepen our understanding of the causes, manifestations, and implications of changing customer relationships. Among the topics we will discuss in small groups: the future of brands, value webs, global youth, the particularity of desire, the digital divide, and why companies still don’t get it!

Who will be the “customers of the future?” What will they want? And how will businesses construct relationships with them that are satisfying, meaningful, and ultimately profitable? 
Attendees will be divided into groups. Each group will explore one of the following discussion topics during the Learning Journey and report their findings at the end of the day, when we gather for dinner:
  1. Changing customer relationships - Christine Amour-Levar
  2. New realities and most compelling hypotheses about the customer of the future - Karen Batungbakal
  3. Most compelling changes and corporate tools for capitalizing on opportunities - Paulette Liu
  4. Key insights about emergent changes, their significance, and the implications for  ompanies. - Maan Hontiveros

We will create a Learning Wall & Individual Reflections
The Learning Wall will showcase photos, quotes, and other artifacts gathered during the day’s learning journeys. Participants will share their personal observations.
