The Yale Center for Customer Insights is excited to announce our upcoming session  of the Learning from Leaders (LFL) Webinar Series on  Thursday, November 18, 12:00pm-1:00pm EDT.  The series will feature leaders in academia and industry across marketing functions sharing their expertise on the changing world of marketing and insights and will be open to the general public. Advance Registration is required.

Over the last 10 years, Ken Muench, CMO of Yum! Brands, and his team have completely reworked and fine-tuned their approach to marketing globally. The new system, R.E.D., is twice as effective as their previous approach and is now taught across every Yum! brand, which has over 50,000 restaurants in over 150 countries. Ken will share the main tenets of the R.E.D. system and dispel a few marketing myths along the way.
