This is the recipe I gave to 350 MBA students at one of America's best business school last month - the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. The students loved Mystery, Sensuality and Intimacy - three vital consumer connection points that terrify most B-Schools. Check out Emotion in Motion at

There's been a burst of speeches in the US, as Saatchi & Saatchi drives emotion-led ideas deeper into the market. In September I was in Colorado talking OnScreen-Online-InStore to the Grocery Manufacturers of America. October's keynote was in Florida. I offered the Association of National Advertisers (marketing bosses of America's top companies) a long view on the power of brands that people love. Loyalty Beyond Reason is at Irresistible is at

The Lovemarks book launch tour rock and rolls on. In October we launched in India - an exotic party, with Bollywood supernova Shah Rukh Khan sharing his passion for Lovemarks. The French edition was launched early last month at the stunning Palais de Tokyo Last week was Brazil. This week it's Budapest Hungary.

Sustainable enterprise is a personal passion. Professorships in New Zealand and Ireland are building the social, ecological, cultural and economic dimensions of sustainability. Check out the new 'Sustaining It' menu on the site for some fresh angles on fast inclusive actions.

Upfront in Sustaining It there's October's article on the Age of Inclusion (the transformative power of women in business) published in a monthly column I write for Italy's premier current affairs magazine, L'espresso.

November's L'espresso article - also on the site - is on the mainstreaming of design. (If design is close to your heart, visit to hear what management maven Tom Peters and I will explore - on December 14, from London - on how design and emotion will shape the future.)

Wherever you are in the world, keep one eye on the road ahead. And have fun!!
