A surprising moment from 2018   
 
The very rapid growth in consumer trust and loyalty for very young digitally native brands across diverse categories. From education and medicines to travel and news, consumer journeys have stopped following predictable paths.
 
A prediction for 2019
 
There will continue to be a growing impact of  the "Community Effect" on brands and categories.

These can be users, influencers, critics, reviewers, content consumers, bloggers, the list is endless. The voice of the brand will just be one of the many.
