Ken Hughes: How you and your brand can survive in this pandemic

Ken Hughes

Ken Hughes shares insights on the psychology of survival.

We love a good survival story. Books are written, movies made, the average person in awe of the survival efforts and drive of the protagonist, cheating death despite the odds. It is worth exploring the characteristics and attributes that the survival research outlines so that we can build these into our own lives and organizations.

But more interestingly in the psychology of survival is the fact that most perish in disaster by doing nothing, by failing to act or by failing to recognise change and threats. The large majority (75%) do not possess the survival characteristics. Join Ken Hughes, Consumer & Shopper behaviouralist, in an exploration of the psychology of survival, through stories of peril, success and despair to learn how you, your brand and your business will survive.
