The French Chamber is glad to announce the next event in the Marketing and Retail Committee series which will be held on Friday, January 18, 2019. It will be the occasion to meet with and listen to Jean Henaff, Semiotician and Marketing Consultant for Japanese and Western brands, and former Marketing Research Director for L’Oreal Group in Asia.

What is unique in a brand? How to fight new competitors, adapt to Japanese consumers and speak to digital natives …without losing our “soul”, our unique values that should be worldwide and timeless? Based on more than 20 years of experience in Japan and Asia in consumer goods, Jean Henaff will show how all those issues can be understood, clarified and solved by simple approaches exploring the generation of brand meaning and consumer culture.

The presentation will show through which process Western and Japanese brands have successfully adapted their communication, store architecture and merchandising to a radically different context while being able at the same time to strongly assert their unique values.
