Client Review
“As an experienced ex-McKinsey consultant I was intrigued by the opportunity to explore the consulting profession from a different perspective. The 3 courses really broadened my skillset and showed me how to stretch my capabilities and leverage my experience into sectors and organisations well beyond those traditionally served by the big consultancies. I'd throughly recommend Mark's professional consulting courses to any ex-MBB (McKinsey, BCG or Bain) consultants seeking to challenge their preconceptions of the consulting profession and optimise their offerings in the real world of independent strategy consulting."

Microtrends by Mark Penn & Kinney Zalesne

Microtrends

Mark Penn is a certified guru on the subject of political polling. His famous clients include Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. He was also engaged by Hilary Clinton in the recent US presidential election where he was famously ‘fired’ over a conflict of interest.

This well written and researched book, probably largely penned by his co-author, provides a neat package of small-scale (<1% of the population) social trends that politicians and marketers should take note of.

Why? For two good reasons:

  1. Major changes in the political and marketing landscape start as microtrends. If you are skillful enough to spot them and develop an appealing proposition you could ‘make a killing’.
  2. Although small scale, these microtrends can still offer substantial opportunities for skilled politicians and marketeers. 1% of the population is still a big market if you have a ‘good product’ for it.

This is a book to dip into a bit like an anthology of short stories. Unlike most anthologies however, there are no duffs  here – each of the microtrends identified is interesting and insightful.
