Seducing the Alpha Consumer: How Brands Should Woo and Win Women.

June 11,2013 – 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM: In Good Compnay, 16 W. 23rd Street, 4th fl., New York, NY

The 2010 Census and many recent studies reveal that women control $1 trillion, or 60% of US wealth. Women in fact are the Chief Procurement Officers for the entire household including big ticket items like cars, electronics and houses. Yet marketers still speak to women like they’re 1950s stereotypes, buying cake mix and cleaning products. We at Influence Bureau are on a mission to change the game. We’ll offer insights into this dynamic and multidimensional target audience as well as share the principles of how to court her. We call it Speaking Venutian. Come if your expertise involves women, marketing or a curiosity about the forces shaping our new economic reality. Influence Bureau Co-Founders Lalita Khosla and Lubna Abu-Osba deploy 20 years experience in advertising, entertainment and marketing to shift the paradigm in how marketers speak to women. We build new brands and reinvent existing ones. Our work ranges from last year’s rebrand of Style network, to the 360° overhaul of venerable hosiery brand No nonsense.
