16:25 – 16:45 Keynote Address 2: Minute to Win it: Psychology of First Impression

With fresh branding we got to watch our footsteps to make sure we are not moving at the losing end. Thus, it is rightly said if you are new or repositioning yourself “First Impression is the last impression that lasts much longer than the 30 seconds it take to create”. Instant judgements are not always accurate, but they endure. How can you make sure your non- verbal’s actually communicate that your brand is the solution of your targets needs that they should buy it?

  • Make more that an impression, make a connection
  • Factors that create a better first encounter
  • Forbidden words that immediately kill a sale
