Alignment across the C-Suite - Driving Revenue while breaking down silos.

There are many requirements for marketing to be successful within an enterprise: the skills of your team, adequate budgets, and support from your peers and broader leadership. Sales, development, finance and HR executives are often taken for granted for the important, if not so obvious, role they play in a CMO’s success. This session will focus on building trust and credibility across your company in order to strengthen your team and solidify marketing’s seat at the table.

Chris Arrendale: Privacy vs Personalization - Striking the Perfect Balance

Privacy concerns are radically transforming the marketing landscape. Your customers have come to expect personalized, and custom tailored experiences, but are now demanding those same experiences without sacrificing their personal data or privacy. It is this expectation that is driving the new “cookieless world” we are entering as we speak. This will undoubtedly lead to more first-party data collection strategies with customers, but the question remains, how do we do both? Chris is here to speak about striking the perfect balance between good customer experience and gathering the right amount of info on your buyer.
