Summary of "The Post-Truth Business" by Sean Pillot de Chenecey | Free Audiobook

QuickRead Podcast - Free book summaries

An informational guide on how brands can move forward and regain the trust of consumers in an increasingly “post-truth” world. Since the Nixon and Reagan administrations, the trust between people and institutions has been rapidly declining. Now living in a post-truth world, people are becoming increasingly skeptical of brands as they become aware of unethical business practices and of companies that simply want to make a quick buck. As consumers search for companies that align with their core values, how can brands show they can be trusted? By taking responsible approaches to customer privacy and data storage, advertising honestly, and seeming genuinely socially conscious, brands can turn that mistrust into authentic connections. Brands can ensure their success through authenticity, transparency, respect for privacy, and a demonstration of empathy. With these key elements, brands can begin rebuilding the trust of skeptical consumers. Do you want more free book summaries like this?

Episode 8 - Sean Pillot de Chenecey

You're Hearing Voices

This week, Dan chats with best-selling author and branding expert Sean Pillot de Chenecey about his excellent book, "The Post Truth Business: How to Rebuild Brand Authenticity in a Distrusting World." We discuss the following topics: -- How do businesses build and maintain "reputation capital"? -- How brands can differentiate themselves in a highly commoditized, highly competitive marketplace; -- How "adland" has evolved since the days of Don Draper, and what factors influence the decisions that we as consumers make regarding the brands we choose to associate with; -- The worst, most tone deaf ad in the history of modern advertising; -- Why it is essential for today's brands to be trustworthy, reliable, and competent; and finally.... -- Will Artificial Intelligence and voice synth technology put voice actors out of work? Sean has some interesting (and perhaps reassuring) thoughts on this topic!

Bonus episode: Sean Pillot de Chenecey on Fake News vs System 1&2 Thinking

The Speaker Show

Enjoy a short bonus episode from our host Sean Pillot de Chenecey, best-selling author and insight/innovation/strategy expert. At a time when we’re all constantly checking the news for the latest update on Covid-19, there’s another problem which affects us all. It links together how we pass on messages about our favourite (or most detested) politician, how we transmit information about brands and celebrities, and it’s directly connected to the virus. That’s because we’re living in a media landscape where the truth is deliberately manipulated, trust has been catastrophically devalued and organised disinformation is a growth business.  So in this podcast, Sean Pillot de Chenecey discusses insights about 'System 1 & 2 Thinking' from his best-selling book 'The Post-Truth Business' - which was a finalist in the 2019 'Business Book of the Year' awards.  Understanding and utilising an awareness of 'how we think' is being highlighted as a crucial means of combating fake news and disinformation about the virus. Therefore, this podcast explains how the brain processes information, and why an issue most usually discussed in relation to advertising agencies, is being connected to the most crucial issue of our time.

Episode 144 - The Post-Truth Business with Sean Pillot de Chenecey

The Extraordinary Business Book Club

Oxford University Press identified 'post-truth' as its Word of 2016, in the wake of both Trump and Brexit campaigns, and we've all been quietly adjusting to that new reality in politics ever since. But it's not just a political issue: if, as Sean Pillot de Chenecy contends, 'Consumer trust is the basis of all brand values', what does it mean when companies betray that trust? In a world of more transparency than ever before, how can businesses create and maintain trust? But the problem with writing about such a topical issue is that as soon as you go to press, there's another breaking story just screaming to be included. 'I do remember, literally when it was on the printing press, just begging the printers to allow me to lob in one more quote,' confesses Sean. But the solution isn't to keep holding back. Listen to Sean's superb advice for anyone writing a book dealing with topical issues.
