A new perspective on Marketing … The Close Contact Marketing – Broward Leadership Lunch of Entrepreneurs’ Organization South Florida.

Today, I had the opportunity and the pleasure to present my perspective on Marketing, during Broward Leadership Lunch of Entrepreneurs’ Organization South Florida.

I ‘ve shared The “Close Contact Marketing” that I’ve developed. Close Contact Marketing is based on the following belief: once you convince the consumer, he becomes your best ambassador. Close contact marketing has its roots in eastern values of the martial arts such as karate : respect and direct involvement are part of it.  Its six rules are symbolized by belts of the sport that I practice so much.

As social technologies play a more important role in value creation, skills such as social intelligence and new media literacy, will probably become increasingly important for workers. The infographic below from Top Ten Online Colleges shows which capabilities will be most valued by 2020.
