If brands are </p><p>to truly excel, they must evolve beyond their competitors in a way that leaves the market reeling to catch up. As Bradley Jakeman, president of </p><p>the global beverage group at Pepsico, said on stage, one must adopt a philosophy of continuous disruption. </p><p>2 Copyright 2015 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc.

Money can only get you so far. Without the ideas and creative vision to grow and evolve the brand, you wont thrive as a company. </p></li><li><p>Think like an entrepreneur disrupt yourself before youre disrupted. </p><p> Bradley Jakeman, president of the global beverages group at PepsiCo., Inc.</p><p>4 Copyright 2015 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc.

Even at large corporations, both creative and critical thinking are necessary in order to push the boundaries of </p><p>the status quo and find new ways to grow, improve, and avoid falling behind the competition.</p></li><li><p>Have the courage to make choices. Dont be afraid to upset some people. </p><p> Robert Lynch, brand president and chief marketing officer at Arbys Restaurant Group, Inc.</p><p>5 Copyright 2015 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc.

While theres uncertainty in going in a new direction, </p><p>the consequences of complacency greatly outweigh the risks. </p></li><li><p>Focus on the consumer.

It may seem obvious, but many brands seem to lose sight of what the customer needs or wants. Listen to what they have to say, get their feedback, and act on it. Meaningful disruption comes from a customer-centric mentality. </p></li><li><p>Ask why anyone will care. Melisa Goldie, chief marketing officer </p><p>at Calvin Klein, Inc.</p><p>7 Copyright 2015 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc. All rights reserved.</p><p>5. Disrupting for the sake of disrupting wont do any good. You need to make meaningful change that grabs attention and brings some value </p><p>to the consumer. Let consumer behavior inform what youre doing. </p></li><li><p>You have to participate. Kira Wampler, chief marketing officer </p><p>at Lyft, sharing advice from her dad</p><p>8 Copyright 2015 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc.

Dig in and create something for your brand that affects people in a meaningful way. Stagnancy makes you irrelevant, and in a customer-centric model, that equals death for a brand. Strive to make a change, and once you have, keep going. </p></li><li><p>9 Copyright 2015 by the Association of National Advertisers, Inc.
