Are you responsible for reinvigorating your brand to achieve enduring profitable growth in a volatile world? Or for keeping a still-strong brand from fading in relevance and value? The Six Rules of Brand Revitalization, Second Edition presents an intensely practical blueprint for resurrecting or revitalizing any brand, and driving it to unprecedented levels of success.


Larry Light and Joan Kiddon illuminate their blueprint with up-to-date case studies and specific examples from their unsurpassed brand experience, offering detailed "dos" and "don'ts" for everything from segmentation to RandD to executive leadership. You'll discover how to eliminate siloes, and refocus your entire organization around common goals and brand promises... restore brand relevance based on an ever-more-profound knowledge of your customers... reinvent your total brand experience, leveraging innovation, renovation, marketing, and value.


Using McDonald's and other prominent examples, Light and Kiddon show how big brands get into trouble by committing several common mistakes… how to reenergize them… why hard-to-change bad habits can lead brands back into trouble again… and how to keep that from happening to your brands. Along the way, they demonstrate how to define and measure progress, rebuild brand trust within and outside the organization, create a "plan to win," and execute on it!

Author Biography

Larry Light is the Chairman and CEO of Arcature. Larry was Global CMO of McDonald’s from 2002 to 2005. More recently, as the interim Global Chief Brands Officer of IHG from 2011 to 2013, Larry led global organizational and marketing process change to increase the effectiveness of IHG’s global and local marketing. Light was formerly the Executive Vice President at BBDO and was Chairman and CEO of the international division of Bates Worldwide and was also a member of the Bates’ Board of Directors. In 2004, BrandWeek selected Larry as one of the top ten marketers of the year and McDonald’s won “Marketer of the Year” from Advertising Age. In its report on Best Marketers of the Decade, AdWeek reported that “Larry Light, who turned around McDonald’s as CMO from 2002 to 2005 finished second to Steve Jobs.” Summarizing the top ten ideas of the decade, Ad Age selected Larry Light’s “Brand Journalism” as “arguably the most realistic description of marketing today—perhaps ever.” In 2013, in partnership with the Association of National Advertisers, the Internationalist recognized Larry among 100 marketing leaders from around the world who are consistently moving business forward.
