An Anthropological Lens

Cultural Anthropology stresses the importance of becoming immersed in consumers’ lives and contexts and takes into consideration consumers' lived experience of reality.

Talking Head: Harsha Balasubramanian Cultural Anthropologist

We put our very own Cultural Anthropologist Harsha Balasubramanian in the hot seat to shed light on the subject of Identity and Belonging. We ask her the key to creating resonant brand connections and what this means for marketeers and brand managers today. Why is this important? Because as she says,“In light of increasing globalisation and cross-cultural ‘blurring of lines’, brands have to work harder than ever to find new, unique and authentic ways to connect with their consumers.”

Why is this important? Because as he says,“storytelling is the root of human communication and sociality. Stories are at the heart of what make us human.”
