What is your interest in
Symrise sees Neuro as a very integral part of our innovation strategy. We are the first mover in the industry to apply Neuromarketing. This fits perfectly in an area where consumers cannot articulate the language of smell, touch and taste in the way the professional could understand and thus has helped us to create better and preferred products for the market. This has resulted in Symrise building a specialised team and placing investment in digital transformation to maintain our lead in this area.
What would be your advice for companies that
want to start using Neuro?
When you consider using Neuro for the first time, ensure that you use Neuro as a long-term investment rather than just a new toy.
What are your doubts/questions?
Many claims are made in this field and my doubts are that how many companies who offer, and that are using Neuromarketing and its services, really understood the subject and the potential to fully give due diligence to the field to ensure quality.
What were you planning to
gain from attending the NMWF and did you succeed?
I attended the conference to get the latest updates in the field and to see if there is any innovation in the area. In future conferences it would be great to see more different approaches apart from use in advertising subjects - where the majority of the presentations was focused on - and more in-depth insights, as was the case in past conference programs.
