Brand2Global: The Global Marketing Conference, October 2 -3, 2017, Silicon Valley, CA

Our President John McGarr along with Kristian Gravelle, Director of Insights at AstraZeneca, will be speaking about The Power of Purpose, the Driving Force of Business & Global Brand Strategy.

The revolution brought on by the digital age of marketing may be reaching a point of disillusionment; where the business outcomes are less impressive than promised, and target customers are tuning out due to oversaturation of digital marketing messages. Meanwhile, the 2008 global economic crisis has provided marketers with a critical case study into how shifts in cultural values drive sudden changes in behavior. There are important lessons for global marketers looking to understand, influence and leverage customer behaviors; namely that executional excellence is not enough if the global brand communication strategies are weak.
