The appeal of brand transparency

Transparency in a post-digital world

Giving your communication the human touch can play a crucial role in bridging the gap between data privacy and personalisation, our Post-digital Customers’ report has found.

Those brands that build this openness into strategies around personalisation or developing voice will the ones that succeed.
