Simplicity Wins Business. Hear the latest Simplicity Index research and the impact simplicity has on company performance.

The greatest brands make life simple. Think Google, Amazon, or even Dunkin’ Donuts. They cut through the clutter by delivering what consumers want, when they want it, without hassle. By simplifying customer experience in a complex world, these brands win customer loyalty, which drives business results and creates value for shareholders.

For the past six years, Siegel+Gale has published its Global Brand Simplicity Index — a study based on a survey of thousands of consumers from around the globe — that ranks brands according to their perceived simplicity or complexity, and the overall simplicity rating of a brand’s industry. We will dive into this years index, providing examples from the top and bottom and giving insight on how they got there, the impact simplicity has on their company performance, and tactics and thought starters you can take back with you.

After hearing Siegel+Gale's original research, you'll be asking yourself "How easy is it to do business with my company?" Plus, you'll leave with new insights on how global brands have leveraged simplicity as a strategic differentiator!
