The ESADE Alumni Moscow Chapter celebrated a dinner talk about neuromarketing, with Lluís Martínez (Lic&MBA 76), ESADE professor of Marketing Innovation and Neuromarketing strategies. Usually there are no words to explain why we like something, we just feel it. Neuroscientists confirm that the great majority of human decisions are non-conscious, even those related to b2b. If this is the way we make purchasing decisions, which kind of marketing should we practice? In this ESADE Alumni dinner talk the professor shared how neurosciences can help us to make our products, services – or even our personal branding – more brain-pleasing.

Two thirds of jobs will disappear in the next 15 years, many will be redefined and people will probably not have the new skills needed for new jobs. For this reason, the ESADE Alumni Geneva Chapter organized a career event at the Michael Page offices to examinate the outlook of the job market and different recruitment channels, and giving tips about creating great LinkedIn profiles.
