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.

Are you ready for 2020 ?

The world is changing very fast and the impact of new technologies is key on the world of tomorrow and the skill needed tto succeed. In just six years time, the skills you’ll be looking for in star employees will be vastly different from those ideal in today’s workers. 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.

I got my first tattoo 16 years ago after I had my twins.
The most frequent reaction about it seems to be “what will it look like when you’re old and wrinkly?”
Seriously, I don’t care, my tattoos are just part of me !!!

I got mine to celebrate my memories and my loved ones, they are a permanent remembrance of happy events and times and will always make me smile.

People don’t buy “what” you do but “why” you do it.

This an amazing TED Talk from Simon Sinek.

Simon Sinek has a simple but powerful model for inspirational leadership — starting with a golden circle and the question “Why?” His examples include Martin Luther King, and the Wright brothers …

You will discover how this is important to communicate from inside out, starting from “why” you do things before talking about the “how” and “what” you are doing as company or leader.

People don’t buy “what” you do but “why” you do it.

IMG_2253-3 Bootcut Joe-Stella McCartney Large Falabella black-Ray ban aviator

The bootcut makes its comeback once again ! So this turn it is time to invest in a nice pair if you haven’t done it already.
The plus with a bootcut is that it makes you look tall or taller. I like to pair it with a regular pump to give the illusion of longer legs.
IMG_2255-2
The perfect bootcut should be fitted all the way to the knee and then slightly flared below that.

You can easily wear it at the office with a blazer or with an elegant blouse.
For the weekend match it effortlessly with a tank or a simple white T shirt.

I put on my denim shorts during the day, for instance to meet with clients, but also at night for a date.. They are incredibly easy to style and depending on your mood or the type of outing you can wear them with booties or flats.

Hoping these looks give you some weekend style inspiration to have your denim shorts on.
This short is one of my favorite, the length is perfect because while they show off your legs they aren’t too revealing.

IMG_2138 Military jacket Zadig&Voltaire-Shoulder Bag Kensington Anine Bing

The military jacket is not a trend, it belongs to the essential items and as any classic pieces I believe it’s here to stay forever.
Whether you live in a cold or a warm climate, you can always wear it, the military jacket should definitely be a staple in your wardrobe next to your leather jacket or denim.

When styling the jacket you cannot go wrong because green is actually a neutral color and so can be matched with every other colors.
Pair it with feminine touch, with a dress or high heels.

FullSizeRender-6 Top Zara 2014-Boyfriend jeans Twin set -Boots Joie

 BF give you that much needed break from the skinny jeans, and you can still look super polished. Even though they are baggy- you don’t have to look messy!
I would say the BF is no longer a trend and it’s more of a staple now.
I love boyfriend jeans !

IMG_2039-1 Patches by hipstapatch.com

Here some tips that will give an edgy look:
Wear it with a blazer, a T shirt and color pump.
Pairing your BF with heels will bring some chic.
Pairing it with a pair of white high top sneakers (converse) will give a laid back style.
Pairing it with boots will always give a cute vibe look.
When I wear baggy pant like the boyfriend jeans, I always match it with a fancy top, otherwise it can easily fall in the sloppy look, which is anywhere and at anytime a no-no…
