WHEN TO USE GDR...

Whether your focus is customer experience, e-commerce or packaging design, you need to innovate. You need to be a pioneer for your customers, making their lives easier and their experience with your brands more engaging.

GDR will help your business innovate and succeed in a competitive marketplace.

GDR’s workshops can be as short as an afternoon yet allow participants to break free from their usual thinking processes. With the outcome being consensus and concrete action steps, it is time well spent.

We use a wide, cross-category perspective to reframe familiar problems. GDR inspires you to think differently with the latest and best creativity, new connections and the unexpected.

GDR’s presentations bring multiple markets and cross-functional teams together. Our content is relevant, yet surprising, opening up possibilities and potential. Attendees leave inspired to start new projects and elevate existing plans.

GDR’s digital platform removes the blinkers and shows you relevant innovations outside of your immediate industry. Seeing your customer in a broader context will help to identify what’s missing from your current strategy.

Our field expeditions give you real-world insights. Role-play and exercises put your team in your customer’s shoes. By experiencing shopper behaviours themselves, they appreciate what really motivates consumers to buy.
