In this third special mid-week mini-episode, Ian Truscott continues diving into the book “Think Like a Brand, Not a Bank” with its co-author Liz High. In this episode, they share the second principle discussed in the book: Embrace Tension and Create Contradictions. 

Liz has worked with virtually every industry on both the client and agency side, using data-driven insight to help shape content, campaigns and brand value. Her clients have included everyone from tech giants Microsoft, Dell and Amazon, to entertainment heavyweight HBO. Her passion and consulting practice is now focused on supporting startup and growth FinTechs, banks and credit unions to innovate, embrace brand thinking, and tell resonant stories that drive growth.

In this episode, they continue the counter-intuitive thinking conversation from the last episode, encouraging marketers to embrace the tension, learn from other industries with examples from Liz’s experience and clients and dare to be different.
