Perhaps you too have spotted a ‘Lumbersexual’ out in the wild. I know I have. There he was, walking into Target, a mountain of a man, sporting a lush, yet groomed, beard that dipped from his chin to his clavicle. Bulging muscles stretched the red and white plaid of his thin flannel shirt, which made me wonder whether he spent eight-hour days in the gym, or actually was a lumberjack by trade. His tight, distressed skinny-jeans gave him away. No lumberjack of my acquaintance would sport such skin-tight duds.
In Q4 2015 we ran an extensive research on how the new business pitching scene has changed in the past few year. Here is what we learned.
Are Hispanic Millennials trying to adopt a healthier diet?

They’re snacking more than any other generation.
Yes, but not like the generations before them. Gen Xers cook for fun every week, or at least every month. Millennials don’t spend quite as much time cooking for pleasure. But one segment of Millennials is in the kitchen, using ingredients that would challenge a Top Chef contestant. This segment is Millennial men.
Numerous studies, as well as anecdotal evidence, have shown that the concept of a “healthy lifestyle” changes with each generation.The Greatest Generation and their Baby Boomer offspring tend to associate health with vitamins and regular medical care.
We use real data every day to spark ideas that let us reach our audience better and deliver the kind of content they’ll love. But when you’re in a pitch meeting, you need more than an idea – you need to prove why your idea will reach your prospect’s target audience better than any other pitch they’ll hear from any other agency.
Research has shown that it takes a person one-tenth of a second to make a judgement (a fairly accurate one) of another person.

After a relationship with WPP’s Maxus that has lasted for about 10 years, Church & Dwight Co., the leading U.S. producer of baking soda and the company behind ARM & HAMMER, Trojan, Nair and Oxi Clean, is reviewing its media agency business.
Consumption behaviors – what people buy, what people read, how frequently they perform these actions – are strong indicators of marketing that worked in the past. Maybe even the recent past.

That unmistakable energy of a successful pitch meeting doesn’t happen through luck; there’s a science behind the spark. Professor of organizational behavior at the London Business School and former executive director of USC’s Leadership Institute, Jay Conger, says there are four distinct steps to getting people onboard with your plan.
Millennials the second-most studied generation in the history of the world – second only to their parents, the Baby Boomers.

The Millennial market is 80 million strong with annual purchasing power of more than $200 billion. This is the generation that will dictate how we buy and sell for the next several decades, and they come with a lengthy list of demands.
