NAB asks Australians to 'Talk to Yourself More' in latest campaign via Clemenger BBDO, Melbourne

Screen Shot 2018-02-12 at 6.10.13 am.jpgNAB and Clemenger BBDO Melbourne are today asking Australians to Talk to Yourself More, in the brand's latest evolution of its 'More than Money' brand promise, demonstrating how NAB is committed to understanding what's important to its customers.

The latest campaign aims to encourage people to drive action by exploring what 'More than Money' means to them, and ultimately, how NAB can support Australians throughout their journey.

Talk to Yourself More is based on the insight that Australians should talk to themselves more about what they really want in life. As discovered through the campaign film, as we get older, knowing precisely what will make us content and fulfilled becomes less obvious. But it's a fact that those who talk to themselves about what they really want are more likely to set goals and achieve it.

Building on the launch of its 'More than Money' creative, the new campaign continues to feature real Australians including NAB customers and NAB employees, who are followed across their journey of talking to themselves more, showcasing the differing responses on offer when first asked compared to when they've truly had a chance to reflect.

NAB chief marketing officer, Andrew Knott, says the campaign aims to encourage Australians to take action and reflect on what's important in their lives.

Says Knott: "Talk to Yourself More is a fantastic demonstration of our commitment to working with Australians to help identify what their 'More than Money' is, and importantly, provide them with the tools and products that can help them achieve their goals."
NAB general manager of brand experience, Michael Nearhos, was proud to include real people in the campaign film with real stories.

Says Nearhos: "The campaign explains through unscripted voices that whether you are a celebrity, peadatric nurse, a business owner or a NAB employee, you can get to the heart of what it is that you really want from life by 'talking to yourself more'."

Says James McGrath, creative chairman, Clemenger BBDO: "We are always humbled and inspired by the honesty and humanity that an idea can create."

The campaign will be rolled out nationally through TV, digital, social, PR and outdoor media starting on the 11th February 2018.

This is good. Certainly the most insightful and interesting thing I have seen from a bank in a while.

Are you kidding? said:

More than money?

That's what banks are all about. Don't try to bluff us. We aren't buying it.

And 50 people... count them, 50... are in the credits for this turgid piece of averageness? Jeez, for that many people to be involved I'd be expecting a Scorsese film.

The art direction on this is pretty bang average. Compare this to the portraits Medibank did for I Am Better. So much more vibrant and interesting.

NAB Customer said:

NAB announces a 6000 job cut from call centres and middle management then launches a campaign that says " Talk to yourself" just seems like a very badly timed and sends the wrong message.

The previous CMO driven "Switch" campaign was much better and i was looking forward to her next project but alas she fell victim to the spill and fill.
