close In the End, It's Still All About the Message

Digital Marketing & Content StrategyAvnet - Chief Marketing Officer

In the ‘art vs. science’ debate around marketing, ‘science’ is crushing it’s older and seemingly irrelevant sibling these days. The flood of new tools and technologies that carry the promise of transforming our marketing departments are still secondary to the most important thing we do in marketing and that is to tell our story. Technology can refine, improve, create efficiencies and, in the end, provide better measurements of our marketing tactics. But they can’t tell our story for us. How do we tell a more powerful story? How can we drive higher sales and profits through compelling storytelling? Is there a recipe that can help improve the uniqueness and quality of your brand’s story? Kevin will take you on a compelling journey of how to shape your company’s story to be more unique, simple and effective. You will see powerful examples of how companies transformed their company’s fortunes through marketing and storytelling with clear and actionable takeaways you can apply immediately within your company.

Key Take-Aways

  • Learn the 4 keys of breakthrough storytelling that can be applied in your company
  • Learn how a 90 minute with Steve Jobs showed how simplicity is the most important, and the most difficult, aspect of marketing
  • See real, powerful examples of companies that followed the 4 keys of storytelling to significantly impact their brands and their bottom line

ATTENDEES

Over the years Quartz Events has hosted senior-level executives from over 80% of the Fortune 100 as well as thousands of up and coming mid-market organizations.

Attendee Testimonials

"The Connect CMO Leadership provides you with access to your peers from across the country in a great environment filled with thought provoking discussion and questions. There are numerous educational sessions with top notch speakers that you can engage with. I would highly recommend attending this event for the entire experience which is first class from start to finish."

"At most conferences, I dread walking the expo floor because I’m swarmed by sales guys that are only interested in getting my email address or in making the hard sell. Connect CMO’s arranged meeting format with the technology platforms totally nullified this though. I felt like I could have much more meaningful conversations because they weren’t distracted by 4 or 5 other ‘bigger fish’ and there was a time limit to ensure that I wasn’t trapped in an overly aggressive sales pitch."

"What pleased me most was the candid nature of the conference. Presenters dove fairly deep on subject matter, while networking with fellow attendees offered learnings from their own environments. Marketing executives who often feel the churn will find value and leave refreshed by the high-level content paired with well-matched exhibitors/sponsors."
