What people say about Sean Pillot de Chenecey

“Sean provides an incisive view of the troubled cultural and political landscape that modern brands need to navigate. But what makes this book ‘mission critical’ is the rigorous research, laser insights and the intelligence briefings he has extracted from a broad range of experts. The Post-Truth Business is a field manual for marketers.”

“The World Retail Congress is renowned for attracting excellent speakers for each of its annual events. Following on from his previous speeches at the congress, this year Sean gave a superb trend research talk as part of our Leadership Programme for CEO’s. He also chaired dynamic marketing panels with innovative brands and leading-edge agencies. I’d highly recommend him for companies seeking a deeply informed and entertaining speaker!”

“Everything starts with trust – but how do brands reset their moral compass and gain trust in a post-truth era? Via brilliant storytelling and research, this hugely inspiring and insightful book shares compelling examples of leaders, brands and business models showing the way forward. I believe this is the ultimate handbook for anyone who wants to build reputation capital and future-proof their brand in a post-truth environment.”
