During this conversation, Jay Sethi, CMO of Diageo Beer Co at Diageo paints a picture of multicultural neighborhoods sharing the foods and flavors they love thus expanding one another’s tastes and perspectives. 
Jay backs up this idyllic vision with a unique approach to following immigration data to predict consumer trends. He speaks to serving “the total American consumer” with authenticity and empathy. Using the example of Diageo’s acquisition of Lone River Ranch Water he discusses shaping the future of your category in a way that reflects culture in the best possible way. Heritage, he says, helps brands secure and sustain a place in the hearts and minds of their customers.
When you take the time to expose yourself to the full spectrum of American communities - whether you are a marketer, business dev leader, agency exec, or in any other role - you develop a deeper understanding of America’s amazing diversity (in the most literal sense of that word). This understanding will shape your product development, your marketing messages, and your corporate roadmap in meaningful ways that drive growth and customer loyalty.
Looking to the future, he sees the emerging buying power of Gen Z as the force to follow in determining the next steps for your brand strategy.
The Takeaways:
Immigration data is an often overlooked predictor of consumer trendsTaking a multicultural approach to your brand strategy drives growth and retentionGen Z prizes authenticity and their buying power is only increasing
