Full text not available from this repository.


Much has been written about the ‘Holy Grail’ of branding and the iconic status of brands in the modern world. Within the language used lies the allusion that powerful brands are western-centric and marbled with Christian symbolism and underpinnings. More recently, terms like ‘Avatars’ open up thinking towards other religious belief systems and eastern perspectives. However, a key question remains as to whether these concepts can be applied to, or embrace the rise of Islamic marketing and Muslim consumer behaviour. The speaker will explore these areas: drawing from his recent research and presenting case examples, whilst sharing philosophical ideas – of relevance to academics, students and practitioners.
