Kenneth C. Davis lauds innovation, while warning us of unintended consequences.

 

The inventors are:Kenneth C. Davis, a educator,and Sunni Brown, a producer

Only problem with Dove of course is that they are owned by the same company that makes Axe, so so much for "trying to repair the damage" unless they are speaking about the damage thier parent company creates.

Jeff Domansky's curator insight, December 13, 2012 3:04 PM

Lots of "what were they thinking?" lessons for every marketer and communicator.
