In this podcast I interview Keith Bohanna. Keith is part of a boutique consultancy, NearFuture,  which helps businesses and organisations make sense of their evolving commercial strategies for dealing with digital.

He also has a core passion for small scale food producers & the role that branding and marketing plays in their growth. His blog, Biabeag, contains nearly 200 blog posts on this topic since 2010.

He kicked off a series of very successful Meet The Maker events in January and is now running a one day event Outstanding By Design taking place on May 10th. In this podcast we discuss the speaker line-up and some of the issues surrounding branding and packaging design for artisan food producers.

Mike’s presentation will be on Augmented Reality and Sales Promotion.
A new channel for tried and tested SP mechanics
A perfect match. AR, new digital technology channel with lots of functionality, a little misunderstood but bags of “hyped” potential and Sales Promotion the established, much used and abused, tried and tested, always looking for a new suit to reinvent itself. The backbone of many a brand and marketing campaign. Is this a good match? Does this relationship have the staying power or just another one night fling?
