"A brilliant and compellingly written exploration of the truths and nonsenses of marketing effectiveness.

Loaded with intriguing case studies and hard data, it is entertaining and informing in equal measure.

I wish I had written it."

Peter Field

Marketing Consultant and Author

In his first book, Marketing for the Mad (Wo)Men of Tomorrow, Wim studies insights from neuroscience, consumer psychology and data of the world's most successful campaigns to understand what drives the effectiveness of advertising in this digital world.  He introduces the award-winning TapForward communication model, a model that not only outperforms other communication models but also successfully prepares brands for the world of algorithms we are in today. 


"This is a fantastic book. A must-read for every marketer and especially the digital marketer, who drives data-driven strategies"


"A great book to introduce the new generation of marketers and advertisers to the profession and psychology of today's demanding consumer."


"An extremely comprehensive and up-to-date book on how marketers should market their brand in a post-digital world."
