Brands, stop kidding yourself - it’s not about you - consumers do not want your annoying ads. They want you to stand for something THEY care about and to give them something they can talk about. To thrive into the next decade brand innovation is a must. Inclusion, immersion and experience are the takeaways, but not standalone. Building and maintaining a future-proof brand requires new marketing methods and models, where experience is the new reach and engagement metric, and deep-rooted authentic brand POVs replace the temptation to inadvertently become the shallow “marginalized corporate sponsor” of the month. Hear from Mastercard CMO Raja Rajamannar - one of the world’s most influential CMOs and current president of the WFA - and Marcus Samuelson on importance of pushing brand boundaries into unchartered territories to make connections that matter.
