INTA Podcasts

Brand & New is a podcast produced by the International Trademark Association (INTA) and focused on innovation. Our host, Audrey Dauvet, shares a new topic every two weeks, on Tuesday—to inform and inspire listeners.

Brand & New gives the floor to inspiring individuals, with a 360-degree vision, to help brand owners, intellectual property l
awyers, and marketing and finance professionals (and beyond!) stay curious and agile in an ever-evolving business environment. 

Each podcast consists of an open dialogue with experts, visionaries, and influential people from all over the world in order to learn more about the evolution of the legal and intellectual property ecosystem, its concepts, and all actual or potential consequences.  

Because we consider innovation as a pillar of INTA’s 
2018—2021 Strategic Plan, and because it is key to “walk the talk,” we invite you to follow Brand & New, to expand your knowledge about the transformation of this industry and to stay curious!

Our host is a French-born lawyer and entrepreneur currently based in the United States. After years spent in private practice as an IP lawyer, Ms. Dauvet became the Global Intellectual Property Director of the leading wine and spirits company Pernod Ricard, Paris, France, managing with her team a portfolio of more than 30,000 IP rights. She then became Vice President Legal, Compliance & Corporate Affairs for Pernod Ricard Americas, in New York.  Her achievements were recognized with several U.S. and international awards. Currently, Ms. Dauvet is a consultant in IP and technology as well as an entrepreneur in the beverage sector.
