‘CSR’, ‘Green’, ‘Ethics’, ‘Fair Trade’, ‘Organic’ are all buttons that marketers are keen to push right now to get us to engage us with their products. Why?

Guilt Trip talks to the history of the marketing communications story, analyses the journey of traditional advertising techniques past and present and tackles the exploitation of guilt and fear.

Bambos Neophytou Since abandoning his academic research program (a hopelessly inadequate attempt to fuse sociolinguistics with cognitive pragmatics), Bambos has worked or consulted for a variety of organisations (Added Value, BBC, BBH, VCCP) in a strategic marketing and communications capacity. Having been unable to finish reading any books on marketing communications, he has always wanted to write one that was readable from beginning to end. He believes this has now been achieved. He currently lives in West Berkshire, is training to be a carpenter and is Head of Planning at Exposure.
