Losing the L-Word


Okay, nobody wants to be a "loser," unless, of course, you happen to be the biggest one, but that's beside the point, because that's not the L-word I'm talking about today.

No, I'm talking about a much more traditionally positive L-word, as in "leader," but as I learned earlier this week, at an excellent breakfast seminar hosted at Padilla Speer Beardsley (PSB) headquarters in Minneapolis, entitled "Thinking Local in EMEA: The Next Wave in European Program Execution," if you're a U.S. company doing or wanting to do business in the EMEA, and if you want to succeed or have a winning strategy there, you should strongly consider losing the "leader" word in your branding and corporate communications. It just doesn't sell well there, especially coming from a U.S. company.
