Brand-Driven Storytelling and Elevating Your ContentViacom - SVP, Social Media and Branded Content Strategy

Brands, now more than ever, are expected to participate in culture and Viacom Velocity as content, culture, and conversation experts will chart new opportunities to immerse and success in the new world order.

close Rebranding to Stand Out in a Very Large Crowd

Brand-Driven Storytelling and Elevating Your ContentBig Brothers Big Sisters - Vice President, Marketing

Big Brothers Big Sisters recently repositioned its brand in a nationwide effort across 270 affiliates. Following 100 years of success as a leading nonprofit focused on youth mentoring the agency recently experienced a significant decline in the number of volunteers recruited and the number of youth served, while revenues remained stagnant. National research showed that the organization’s logo and identity were not representing it accurately or effectively among targeted constituencies, including young professionals. The outcome was a bold transformation designed to raise awareness of a vital mission, strengthen the National Federation and each affiliate, recruit more volunteers with an emphasis on men and specifically men of color, and serve more disadvantaged children.

 

Key Take-Aways 

  • Research required to provide strong business case for a national rebrand.
  • Benefits of a national marketing task force to coordinate 270 affiliates through major brand repositioning.
  • Importance of a strong brand partner and process of gaining consensus across many constituents.
  • Effective digtial, print and media assets required for a successful rebranding launch.

close Is Email Marketing Really Dead? Not According to Data

Personalized Marketing and Data-Driven ExperiencesBNY Mellon - VP Marketing Analytics

In an age where consumers are faced with a myriad of diversions such as websites, social media, and other communication platforms, marketing content across all channels is increasingly competing for attention in a vast sea of digital distractions.
As a marketer, you need to be a lot smarter and consider the best tools at your disposal in order to make your voice heard amongst all the noise. It’s a common misconception that the email is dead, or dying, in a sea of social and digital platforms.
As one of the best tools to accomplish a one to one marketing approach may very well be the good old email.

Key Take-Aways 

  • Make it relevant to your audience
  • Learn through data and testing
  • Emails should be an integrated part of your global Marketing strategy
  • Cross functional alignment is a key success factor for tailoring the right message to the right audience

close Creating Customer Empathy: The Power of Empathy, Analytics and Observation in Marketing to Measure Success

Customer Journey and Engagement AnalyticsIntuit ProConnect - Vice President of Marketing and Analytics

Oftentimes skills in math and analytics are deemed unnecessary in marketing. Patti Newcomer, VP of Marketing at Intuit’s ProConnect Group, would passionately disagree. With over 20 years of experience and a background in engineering, Newcomer knows analytics are key to driving success – especially when it comes to delivering excellence to the customer. She will share how her teams lean into researching customers on a deeper level through building customer empathy and what Intuit calls Customer Driven Innovation. She will dive into how her team overcomes challenges and exceeds expectations through data, engagement and focusing on the customer to ensure marketing always has a voice.

 

Key Take-Aways 

  • To be successful, Newcomer believes you should listen to customers so well, that the line between the marketer and the customer is nearly nonexistent. At Intuit, she encourages her team to talk less and observe more to gain authentic insights from the end customer.
  • It’s critical to have customer insights and pair it with knowledge of the product, and the technology. From there you can innovate in ways the customer couldn’t actually think of. Newcomer calls this Customer Driven Innovation.
  • B2B marketing is uncertain enough, so if expenses are tight, and you can’t measure your success and your impact, then you’ll never persuade your audience that the investment is worthwhile.
  • Remember to use analytics to focus on outcomes and results to bring marketing to the forefront of the business – no matter the size of the company or business unit.

close From Event Booth to the Boardroom: Building Marketing Credibility with Stakholders

Connecting Strategy, Technology and ExecutionArcserve - Chief Marketing Officer

Too often marketing is misunderstood within the highest levels of the company, because of an inability to fully internalize what we do and why. Are you caught in a circular conversation with your most important stakeholders telling you that marketing isn’t delivering? Do you have advocates outside of the function that could champion your organization and quantify the value you bring to them? Could you, today, justify your spend in a way that stakeholders would agree and support? These are common struggles we face as marketing professionals, but there are ways to mitigate and address them.

 

Key Take-Aways 

  • How to establish credibility with external stakeholders at the individual, team or organizational level and break the traditional perceptions
  • Be introduced to a framework to quantify marketing’s contribution to the corporation
  • See and develop examples of real-time application with marketing’s ability to influence revenue, market perception and sales enablement
  • Talk through your real-life scenarios and develop a working plan that you could execute tomorrow (should the workshop format be adopted)

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."
