Learning Through Diversity

Unlike other schools, INSEAD doesn’t have a dominant national culture. This enables us to turn diversity into a powerful learning tool.

Mining Language for Effective Communications in the Digital World

Today, firms have many language-based decisions to make— from the brand name to the language of their annual reports to what they should or shouldn’ t say on social media. Moreover, consumers leave a goldmine of information via their words expressing their likes, dislikes, perceptions and attitudes. What the firm communicates and what consumers say have an impact on consumer attitudes, satisfaction, loyalty, and ultimately, on a firm's sales, market share and profits. In this talk, Abhishek Borah meticulously and marvellously showcases the influence of language on business. Through examples ranging from Toyota to Tesla and Metallica to Mahatma Gandhi, you will know about how to improvise on social media, how changing the use of simple pronouns like ‘ we’ and ‘ you’ can affect a firm’ s bottom line, how to spot a fake review online and much more
