    Insightful part 1. Any possibility that, in part 2, Rob could elaborate on the exhuberance aspect of the idea? Apple, Pepsi, Pedigree, Visa … all successfully bottle exhuberance in their own way. Is that the entire strategy from the get-go? I tell you why I ask, most clients have default settings relating to results. Ultimately it’s how they are evaluated so it makes sense that we are judged accordingly. Results and forecasting results are not subjective arts at all. It is all black and white and bottom line. Added to which, if you’ve noticed, our opinionated friends in research have steered clear of any real insight on social media. Not even they can take money on forecasting. No opinions of value means we’re left alone to answer that old loaded question, “will it work?” And, where does exhurberance seat itself in this damp, grey cubicle of the left brain?
