5 Years of Smarter Planet
IBMs Smarter Planet Agenda was born in the dark days of 2008s Financial Crisis, yet has lasted 6 years an age in any category, let alone Technology. It took an insight into the capabilities of data to solve problems and elevated it to an inspiring vision of how we could all make our world work better. In doing so, it made a swathe of new markets for IBM. Smarter Planet has created billions in revenue for IBM, paying back at a rate of $20 for every $ spent on media.

Building & Evolving an Icon for Long-Term Growth
Priceline was fighting to stand out in a commoditized online travel category and needed a compelling brand point of view. Enter The Priceline Negotiator. Inspired by consumer research and employee interviews, the campaign personified the companys DNA of going to great lengths to save people money. As the recession hit and consumers cut back on travel, and as new entrants crowded the space, the campaign strategically evolved to attract new users and reflect changing travel-booking behavior. The campaign drove unprecedented long-term growth and turned Priceline into a category leader.

Driving an 18 Million Dollar Crusade for Schools
Perceptions of Ford vehicles among an important audience were negative and very difficult to change. To encourage these people to consider a Ford, we needed them to experience one. We found a meaningful way to do just that. Ford Dealers partnered with local High School booster clubs and for every test drive taken, Ford donated needed money for various school programs. This Drive 4 UR School test-drive program resulted in Fords most effective test-drive program ever and millions of dollars donated to help High School students across the United States.
