It's more important than ever for brands to 'Dare to Be Different', especially in a recessionary landscape and this was the headline message at this year’s Ignite launch event – a powerful morning of inspiration and insights from our experts and the breakthrough brands that are doing just that.  Looking at the brands that had outperformed the rest in the Kantar BrandZ 75 most valuable UK brands list along with the latest thinking from Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, we uncovered the key to their success which isn’t salience, or meaningfulness alone, but meaningful difference which, in turn, counts for 94% of a brands pricing power. And pricing power means the ability to charge more, and ensure your products feel worth paying for.  Brand difference is an investment, not a cost.

So how do you drive difference?
