But before I start attacking you with questions, can you give us a little bit of background as to where you’ve come from and how you fell into this really niche area of the science behind branding?

Emmanuel Probst

I come from a passion for understanding why people do what they do. You asked for an introduction, and I do three things. 

Firstly, I’m the global lead for brand thought leadership at SOS. 

Secondly, I teach consumer market research at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). 

And lastly, I write my books. 

These three things have a common goal, which is to understand why people do what they do. 

My focus is on consumer psychology so that as marketing and advertising professionals, we can build stronger brands

This has been my passion for over 17 years and has kept me on my toes.
