The critical role of marketing in an era of disruption
Markets are changing; competition is coming from new directions; newer brands often are preferred over long-established brands; distribution channels are shifting; inflation and other dynamics are influencing pricing strategy; and media is available 24-7 in the palm of our hands. All of this is occurring while the search for talent is more competitive than ever Diversity, agility, grit, empathy and business acumen are foundational to future success in business. Marketing has always played an important role in every company’s success, but over the past year and in the years ahead, marketing will have an even greater impact on determining which companies win and which ones lose.
At the forefront of business competitiveness is the marketer. Business functions, customer relationships and industry/market trends are more interconnected than ever. Across this two-day event, participants will learn firsthand about how marketers are:
- Leveraging insights into action
- Defining new competitive landscapes
- Evolving their brand equity to meet today’s customers’ expectations
- Disrupting their market before someone disrupts them
- Leveraging technology to create differentiation among competing media
- Realizing that people are the real key to future success
Attendees will hear from marketing thought leaders at companies that include Progressive Insurance, Egon Zehnder, Blue Buffalo Co., Techtronic Industries, Coca-Cola Bottling, E. & J. Gallo Winery, iHeart Media, Mondelez International, Allstate Insurance, Cox Automotive, Continental Tire and Lionsgate Entertainment.
