Incentive&Motivation Magazine June Edition - Page 2

Welcome Welcome to the June edition of Incentive&Motivation. What a year it is shaping up to be! Editor’s Note Customer loyalty is still looked upon as a holy grail in businesses. Not only to do we want loyal customers who have a strong connection to our brand and who add more to the bank over a long term relationship, we also want more people through the door. This month we look at the draw of promotional merchandise with the BPMA, the importance of prizes with Nick Deyong of NDL as well as some of the great things other companies are offering to increase internal engagement. We have a special interview with ‘The Sporting Mind’s’ Andy Barton, a regular on BBC 2 Newsnight who is called upon to offer wisdom into what drives and motivates us. On behalf of myself and the editorial team, I thank you for your continued support of Incentive&Motivation Magazine.
