Post Summit Workshops op
h Works A
Adapting Existing Marketing Schools Of Thought To Cater For Islamic Frameworks And Consider Muslim And Non–Muslims Consumers
h Works B
13.00 – 17.30
08.00 – 12.00
Rationale This interactive workshop considers some of the key issues facing marketers in the sector and raises questions as to how existing marketing schools of thought need to be adapted, or in some instances replaced. The unique and fresh perspective offered here draws from published work on the Hip hop phenomenon and an award winning paper on Halal branding, using techniques hailing from Ancient Greek philosophers. The argument is that Hip hop and the Muslim market have similar traits and marketing potential. A key assertion is that Muslim markets represent more than ‘meat and money’ and one religious group. Delegates will be given insight into new frameworks and cultural predictors, designed to assist them in future activities. Learning Objective • Understanding current marketing approaches and the differences between Muslim majority and minority countries • Appealing to non–Muslims within existing an Islamic Frameworks – More than just the Do’s and Don’ts • Muslim youth cultural codes – black zebras with white stripes, or white zebras with black stripes? • Is the Muslim Market the new Hip Hop?

Learning Objectives • Leveraging the media to reach your audience and transition from push marketing to pull engagement • How do the exponentially increasing online and mobile channels impact audiences and the way they consume marketing? How will this change how you convey your organisations messages? • Establishing mutual beneficial media partnerships • Effectively communicating different messages to different stakeholders while still conveying brand values About Your Facilitator Alberto Chahoud, Lecturer, Paris–Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi – UAE and Area Communications Manager – Middle East & Africa, Red Bull – UAE Alberto Chahoud has been a lecturer at Paris-Sorbonne University since 2009 and is a member of the Selection Committee for the Masters Program in Marketing, Communications and Management.
