    Our lived experience of the pandemic has been greater oversight of and restriction on human movement. Social interactions and commercial transactions have increasingly become defined by distance, with consumers and businesses shifting swiftly to digital channels. The challenge for CMOs is communicating authenticity and empathy in an environment where the human touch has been muted. Our opening Session shares the latest intelligence underpinning contemporary approaches to marketing, dissecting the economic and social trends affecting consumer behaviour and sentiment.

    You Say Traditional Like it’s a Bad Thing: Why it’s Time to Change your Perception of News as an Advertising Channel  

    Legacy, traditional, old… These are some of the words that have been used to describe news. But did you know the constantly evolving channel is more effective at delivering brand lift and propensity to purchase than other “new and flashy” options.

    It’s easy to be seduced by the new and remove the tried and true from your media plan but mindset shifting research shows news has the scale, effectiveness and influence to command a greater share of your media investment. Heck, even the hard to reach 14-to-34-year-old demographic engage with news on a daily basis.

    Join former CMO Vanessa Lyons and Samsung’s former CMO Josh Grace, as they discuss why news deserves to be restored to its rightful place in your media mix.

    INTEGRATION AND ACCOUNTABILITY SESSION

    The pandemic has challenged our preconceptions of the limitations of marketing teams. Facing severe upheaval and relentless pressure to sustain value, CMOs have adapted and adopted new methodologies to succeed in our current business climate. This Session unpacks the business model revisions and structural mechanisms that are improving marketing responsiveness. We will interrogate the opportunities and accountabilities presented to CMOs as the economy unlocks, and in doing so present delegates with new perspectives on the structures supporting their success.

    ACCESS AND ECOSYSTEMS SESSION

    Brands and consumers have been co-creating an experiential landscape that stretches from the physical world to the digital. But restrictions on movement have entrenched the divide between these two settings. As we accelerate towards a contactless consumer environment, marketers will be called upon to translate deep consumer knowledge into tailored experiences that work harmoniously across physical and digital settings. This Session asks our speakers and audience to think more deeply about the information dialogue between consumers and businesses. We will consider how to adapt physical environments to online drivers and ensure that your business operates as consumers perceive it: as a single entity.

    PERSONALISATION AND RELEVANCY SESSION

    The customer journey has been condensed into sharp, one-click moments of instinct and influence on digital channels, and brands must be tactically present in these instances. To effectively ignite the interest of consumers and propel them down the path to purchase, marketers need an e-commerce engine that responds personally and empathetically to customer needs. In this Session, we will hear how marketers are leveraging data to inform a whole gamut of marketing activities at relevant stages of the customer’s journey.

    PURPOSE AND ADVOCACY SESSION

    Consumers are moving beyond transactional commerce and aligning with brands that they connect with on a deeper level. As the ethical dimensions of consumer decision making become more salient, marketers have a significant opportunity to reject tokenism and pursuit a meaningful agenda that earns the lasting support of customers. In this session, we ask our speakers if businesses can matter to people without marketing to consumers, examining how advocacy influences consumer decision-making to unpack the relationship between purpose and profit.

    CREATIVITY AND TECHNOLOGY SESSION

    There is a hygiene level when it comes to technology and data, a baseline of proficiency and functionality that consumers expect. Business leaders must continually invest in digital capability to keep pace and remain in consumer consideration as this baseline rises. But technology only goes so far – it can help you find and deliver an audience, but it can’t create the message. This Session considers the essential technologies augmenting marketing and considers how leading brands are elevating creativity and content to cut-through the noise.
