On Value Proposition as the Essence of the Good Business

Watch a video replay of Flint McGlaughlin's presentation at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford, U.K., on the importance of value proposition when it comes to creating a successful, and ultimately good, business.

The goal of the entrepreneur is not to create a company but to create a customer. There is no company we can't first frame and attract a customer.

McGlaughlin explains that the idea of value proposition is really an extension of the essence of marketing itself.
