During the pandemic, Isabel researched why certain companies deal better with a crisis and discovered there is a pattern behind their success.
She wrote a book about it called: ‘does your brand care? Building a better world with the C A R E Principles.’ The book was published in 2021 and sold well as in May 2022 a second printing has been foreseen.

What others say about the book:
“Business as usual is over. Turbulence will be the new normal. We really need to think about how we live and what we do. This also implies a shift in attitude towards how we do business. “Does Your Brand Care?” conveys a new methodology for helping brands to prepare for these extraordinary times. More than ever, we need to focus on what matters, not on what sells”.
Caroline Pauwels, Rector Vrije Universiteit Brussel
“At Special Olympics Belgium, empathy, trust and respect are the key ingredients in fostering an environment where our athletes can grow and thrive—but also for knitting together the community of volunteers, sponsors and partners that make our work possible. As the C A R E Principles show, these building blocks can be used by anyone in any sector to lay the foundations for a meaningful and sustainable society”.
Zehra Sayin, CEO Special Olympics Belgium
“Your brand will be stronger, when you genuinely care about your employees. The relations with your customers will be deeper, when you are an empathic employer. Your organization will be more agile, when your teams are truly empowered. The CARE principles described in this book bridge the gap between People and Marketing. They are the two sides of your company’s identity. I am convinced this book will spark great conversations between Marketing and HR, making your company and brand more authentic, agile and simply better”.
Ann Caluwaerts, Executive Vice President Telenet
