Why “purpose” is the new buzz word in branding
Within the last couple of years more and more people in business talk and write about the “purpose” of their company and how it creates meaning. Recently I’ve been reading articles in the ad and marketing industry where the term “purpose agency” has suddenly become the new buzz. One of my fellow members of the Medinge Group recently pointed to a consultant on LinkedIn claiming she was “the Worlds first” and only “purpose consultant”. Needless to say she is not the first, neither the only. What her title reflects is that it’s become fashionable to talk about the purpose and meaning of companies, organizations and cities.
