Who am I? Hi, my name is Brad Geiser. My areas of focus are marketing futurism, social science and communications strategy. I have been a marketing consultant in the Philippines for over 15 years.
What have I done in that time? Conservatively:
• Together with Amor Maclang we co-founded GeiserMaclang, the first and only commercial marketing organization of its kind dedicated to doing well by doing good in South East Asia.
• I’ve designed and conducted 30+ in-depth original consumer research projects
• Written 700+ marketing plans and campaigns for 300+ companies big and small, local and foreign, and a few governments as well
• Received over 40+ awards locally and internationally for said work
• Created or recreated 20+ brands, from business model through brand architecture
• Successfully represented 16 out of 18 clients in crisis situations (1 was guilty and lied about it, 1 is still ongoing)
• What I am most proud of is personally training 100+ fresh grads, many of whom became highly-placed marketing executives before the age of 30.
What can I promise you?
I will not teach you anything I have not already tried, experienced or witnessed.
I will do my level best to temper my honest opinion with some measure of kindness.
I will tell you things that make you uncomfortable.
I will not accept mediocrity and neither should you.
