Rebrading Greece – Exquisite talk

An extremely interesting and passionate meeting was recorded on 11th November 2011,
during EEDE’s (Advertising & Communication Companies Union) 11th “Aristoteli” Conference, in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The conference topic was “Rebrading Greece” and the talks addressed the need for the country to rise up from the unprecedented attack and slander that it has been under and explored the effects this attack has had on economy, politics, diplomatic relations etc, but also on Greek people’s self image, as well.

This is one of my favorite talks.

The talk is in English with Greek subtitles, made by Mr Peter Oikonomides,
Global Brand and Communications Consultant, with a great deal of international experience,
including many world wide famous brands.

Enjoy Mr Oikonomides, as he manages not only to demonstrate his abilities in branding,
but also to emphasize the need for the Greeks themselves,
to believe in their own
inherent ability to imagine and change their future
as they have been doing, for the past 5.000 years.

Propaganda tricks. Rule No.1: Divide and Conquer

One can not complete an evil scheme, against a majority of people, if they stand united against the evil scheme. An old but still valid trick: Make them hate each other. They’ll be too busy fighting each other, to see what’s going on. It seems that this idea, never goes out of fashion! I am amazed it still works. Despite the unlimited access of information, people still seem to prefer NOT to check the info they get from mass media. As if they have always proven to be soooo reliable, that they deserve our complete trust…?
