What do you need to IGNITE?

 

For the world’s largest casual dining chain,

Dain worked with the C-Team to create an international conference at which they took 1,800 leaders from around the world and lead them through three days that changed everything they thought and believed about what their brand could be. The result? Not just a return to positive comp sales but a return to the energy and excitement that made their brand great in the first place.

For a European restaurant chain opening their doors in China,

Dain worked to understand how young Shanghai professionals would respond to the brand and then designed a fresh and compelling brand essence that was uniquely appealing to Chinese singles. Then he partnered with tech genius Michael McGar to create a multi-layered customer engagement campaign that engaged future customers in “playing“ with the brand before the doors even opened and in winning meaningful gifts and prizes that got them lining up around the block when they did. It was a creative use of traditional advertising paired with social media and China’s ubiquitous mobile device culture, and it rocked.

For the fastest-growing German luxury car brand,

Dain designed their first-ever annual report to U.S. dealers in celebration of hitting two major milestones. Titling the report for future annual editions and leading a design team to make it as elegant and high-performing as the cars for which they are famous, Dain and the design team created something which helps dealers adjust to a new leadership role in the U.S. market.

For a global industrial coatings company,

Dain took on the challenge of helping the US sales organization understand their role in serving American companies manufacturing in Europe and Asia. Over a three-day meeting, Dain and a talented production team used a combination of games shows, humor and audience involvement to get them to partner with their global sales partners to dominate their industry.

For your organization,

whether you’re a company that’s hungry for change or a production company serving customers who want the most bang for their meeting dollar, Dain can do for you what he’s done for the most respected companies in the world.
