About

A group of specialists brought together by an innovative marketing director, helping visionary leaders look ahead to the future.

Norbert Barré

Creative Minds was founded by Norbert Barré with the idea that collective intelligence upstream of projects is at the heart of their success.

As a former national marketing director for France and Europe in a major bank, he has worked on numerous customer-centric transformation plans with strong IT components (big data, analytical and operational CRM, web and multi-channel offers, etc.).

He also held operational and management responsibilities as regional director. His experience thus allows him to meet a multitude of companies with very different business models, making this a rich network portfolio.

He was trained with the Creativity and Innovation team of HEC Montreal and its ecosystem (Cirque du Soleil, Ubisoft, Bombardier...) in Design Thinking and business models with HEC Lausanne, on Deep Techs with Singularity University, on nudges with inudgeyou (Copenhagen), in the field of innovative designs (CK workshops, Ecole des Mines) and collective intelligence (C2 Montreal workshops, TED Global).

Portfolio

By essence, Creative Minds supports radically-different industries.

The Sailing Resort

Context

Cruise tourism on medium-sized boats — with a wealthy target audience — is growing as fast as the trend for sustainable experiences.
A niche was identified for the development of stays on sailing ships.

Implementation

We designed unique concepts, positioning, business case, financing plan and communication materials for a luxury holiday offer accessible on eco-built trimarans for 12 to 16 guests. Stays would take place on professional vessels with 24/7 service that respect the environment (sailing, electric motors, etc.) and are integrated into a local/short-circuit  ecosystem.

Health Insurance

Context

The Swiss healthcare sector is experiencing rising costs with an ever-increasing demand for qualitative services. A health insurance company wanted to develop an innovative digital ecosystem to complete its traditional offer of health service reimbursement to its members.

Implementation

We delivered marketing research materials and implementation proposals. Work took place with a lean/agile start-up mentality where we defined customer paths, directed iterative and dynamic tests on identified targets, searched for partners, built business models, and prototyped the MVP.
