Executive Forum: Creating Value in an Ever-changing Chemical Industry

Dear Friends of CEIBS,

We cordially invite you to attend our Executive Forum on October 28, 2019, where Mr. Jon Penrice, President of Dow Asia Pacific, will share his insights on Creating Value in an Ever-changing Chemical Industry.

Change has become the only constant in the chemical industry as it strives to grow and create value. Drawing on many years serving with Unilever, DuPont and Dow, Mr. Penrice will shed light on the forces driving change and how companies can create value by translating them into opportunities.

He will look at the challenges of innovation and how smart marketing can create value, sharing practical examples from his experience. He will touch on the topics of pull-thru marketing, including value chain analysis, segmentation, and ingredient branding, as well as how brand and customer experience is framed by emotions. Finally, Mr. Penrice will discuss sustainability as one of the major drivers of change and how it can be a disruptive form of innovation.
