Marketing In Uncertain Times: What 7200 marketers told us about customer experience, digital marketing and measuring success during these times of change.

Salesforce research has surveyed marketers for six years and tracks the trends, priorities, and challenges that they face. Marketers have always navigated change with skill but 2020 has proved to be the most challenging in their careers. Using data from a survey of over 7000 marketers we’ll learn how marketers are adapting to current times and what’s taking mindshare and budget for marketers in Canada and beyond this year. We’ll also check in with consumers and see what types of communications, marketing and channels they’re listening to in this new world.

The Grey Swan, The Zeitgeist and The Compass:
Getting to the Next Normal of Business, Customers and Innovation

2020 has represented an inflection point on a full set of fronts. It has disrupted the workplace, society, culture, technology and the marketplace. Institutions, business models, talent  and customers that have run the same way for the past 50 years have had to shift quickly and  dramatically to the new reality. And they're not going back. This wrinkle in time represents an opportunity for marketers to take advantage and get ahead of the future. 

Global thought leader and change agent Sean Moffitt packages three fields of work into one insight-packed discussion - The Grey Swan - what will really change post-pandemic; The Zeitgeist - how have customer values turned; and The Future Compass - what are the most attractive routes, brand & marketing approaches and business models ahead. The presentation is based on the work of his global guild, customer values study and book Futureproofing : Next - The Future Beyond Innovation that Sean has released in September, 2020. Don't miss this opportunity to take advantage of the future, not be a victim to it.
