Leaders can come in all shapes and sizes - including bright and colorful creative ones. The born-and-raised Londoner, Sophie Lutman, has forged a career out of creativity that spans over 25 years. In various creative director roles, Lutman has worked with the likes of BBC, Telefonica, Capgemini, Credit Suisse, Deloitte, and EY, to bring their ideas to life. Months before the pandemic swept the UK and changed our working lives for good, she joined Siegel+Gale to head up its EMEA creative division. Like most leaders, her latest challenge has been guiding her team through the new challenges that working from home brings, including its limitations to collaborating on client briefs and stifling creativity.

ith most major cities now awash with the same multinational brand names, the local feel of many urban thoroughfares has all but disappeared. Still, the sense of familiarity that comes along with the classic Italian restaurant, or well-known Irish pub, does provide customers with enough predictability to make comfortable choices and reduce risk of a disappointing purchase. While predictability offers some clear positives for customers, there are downsides as well.

As retailers search for new methods to win customers’ hearts and minds, a brand’s physical space of commerce will not play the same transactional role as it once did. With so much accelerated change in the external forces, the bigger opportunity is to have a fluid mindset for their retail experience. Retailers must think of their spaces as living, breathing and ever-changing organisms—called organic retail—that operate more like code or software than a static footprint.

For years, many B2B brands invested more in sales and product than in brand marketing, the conventional wisdom being that superior specs and personal relationships would win the day. Today, however, it’s clear that strong brands are just as crucial in B2B, where they enhance effectiveness of demand-generation activities, lower the cost of sales, and command a price premium.
