Chapter 1: Decision Making (Watch Recording)
In this first webinar of the series on Chapter 1: Decision Making, Tom and Orlando lay the foundations for the rest of the book, discussing the features of System 1 thinking and why it’s so important for marketing.
Chapter 2: Innovation
In the second webinar of the series, we show how System 1 thinking (how humans make decisions) has an instinctive preference for the familiar. For consumers to accept your innovation, embed your great new idea in the familiar to make it Fluent – easy to recognise and understand. Fluent Innovation looks 80% familiar and 20% new.
Chapter 3: Advertising: (Watch Recording)
In the third webinar of the series, we explore emotional advertising. Emotional ads are by far the most likely to create long-term profitable growth. Harness the 7 basic emotions and fluent creative devices to make great advertising. The more people feel, the more people buy.
Chapter 4: Brand-Building: (Watch Recording)
In the fourth webinar of the series, we unveil the 3 rules for building brands: Fame, Feeling and Fluency. Brands should come readily to mind (Fame), feel good (Feeling) and be distinctive (Fluency). The 3 Fs explain current market share, predict share gain and create brand value: they are the keys to profitable growth.

Chapter 5: Shopper Marketing (Watch Recording) 
In the fifth webinar of the series, we reveal how System 1 works in the purchase environment. Don’t create stopping power, which encourages caution and limits sales. Instead, create moving power, enabling shoppers to buy easily and instinctively.
