Global Brand and Innovation Strategy Consulting Firm Kicking Off WIF with Workshop

Vivaldi Partners Group ( will kick off the World Innovation Forum on June 20th with a sponsored workshop on “Using Social Currency to Innovate Successfully and Drive Growth.” Agathe Blanchon-Ehrsam, Executive Director at Fifth Season at Vivaldi Partners Group, will explain how the power of Social Currency affects innovation in today’s digitally connected world. The World Innovation Forum will be presented on June 20-21 at the New York City Center.

Blanchon-Ehrsam will join the leading thinkers in innovation at the World Innovation Forum to talk about how to shape the future of business. At the “Using Social Currency to Innovate Successfully and Drive Growth” Workshop, Blanchon-Ehrsam will explore how social currency is becoming increasingly important in innovation for brands and businesses.

Vivaldi Partners Group pioneered the concept of Social Currency, a tool to understand how customers’ and consumers’ behaviors have changed and how to profit from the change, with a landmark study in 2010 that coined the term and definition. Social Currency consists of the “Social Sixes” of Affiliation, Conversation, Information, Utility, Identity, and Advocacy. At the workshop, Vivaldi Partners Group will also release an update to their landmark Social Currency Report.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Vivaldi Partners Group in their sponsorship at the World Innovation Forum,” said Patricia Meier, CEO of HSM Americas. “We are especially delighted they will be presenting their Social Currency research at the World Innovation Forum since Vivaldi Partners Group has written the definition of Social Currency.”

“Our firm has a long history in innovation. Social Currency is the very latest thinking on innovation, particularly how it relates to the ecosystem of consumers’ lives and affect brands, businesses and industries,” said Erich Joachimsthaler, CEO and Founder of Vivaldi Partners Group. “We are excited to partner with the World Innovation Forum to explore how the innovation paradigm must shift to accommodate the changing demands of customers’ and consumers’ social lives.”
