9:15 - THERE’S A THIN LINE BETWEEN BEING A HERO & BEING A MEMORY
So said Optimus Prime – someone who knows a lot about the power of Transformation. In today’s business world, the Heroes are the people who embrace Transformation, rapidly changing the way they operate to keep ahead of the competition. The (distant) memories are the people who resist change, and are disrupted into oblivion by newer, faster, more agile rivals. To make sure you’re a Hero (not just a memory), come to this session and find out which areas of your business you need to be transforming now – according to MediaCom’s survey of CMOs.
In this session you will learn:
1. Those that resist change in their business will soon become little more than a memory in the business world.
2. There are four key challenges within media which we believe have an argument for being the most important thing to transform your business.
3. While some of these areas are new to the industry and transform themselves just through progress, others are deeply rooted in advertising, and require continually creative ways to approach them in a new way.
4. In this session, you will be asked to consider different challenges to business and then to cast your vote.
