Women Leading Change: War Zones, the Workplace, # Me Too. Now What? & Beyond

Zainab Salbi went from being a survivor of war in Iraq, where she was raised as the daughter of Saddam Hussein’s private pilot, to helping over 430,000 women in eight conflict zones rebuild their lives as founder and former CEO of Women for Women International. Zainab shares her experiences from war zones where her organization created life changing opportunities for women to be able to work and contribute to the economic health of their communities. She goes beyond war zones to discuss her experiences as a CEO and how we need to get past our fear and lead with love. She also explores our culture of complicity and the objectification that has mainstreamed sexual harassment and the abuse of power by men against women from all walks of society. In this inspiring keynote, Zainab will move us forward on a road of change to end this cycle of violence, to create a nurturing environment where every person’s potential can be fully realized.

Zainab has been called one of “25 Women Changing the World” by People, “100 Leading Global Thinkers” by Foreign Policy Magazine and one of 100 “The Most Creative People in Business” — Fast Company.

Building a Culture of Freedom and Responsibility

Patty McCord served as chief talent officer of Netflix for 14 years and helped to create the famous Netflix Culture Deck.

A veteran of established enterprises and start-ups alike, McCord has vast experience building winning cultures. McCord will discuss how building a culture of freedom and responsibility strips away the constraints that can thwart high-performers so your teams can be lean, nimble, motivated and happy.

Blockchain in Marketing: Imminent Promise, Real Challenges

The advent of blockchain technology has represented a generational shift in network computing. For marketers and communicators, corporate adoption and implementation of blockchain technology promises advantages that are too compelling to ignore. These range from operational (e.g., ad buying) to transformative (e.g., certifying goods as sustainably sourced). But blockchain technology is transformative enough without having to oversell it. You do, however, have to understand the capabilities and limitations. Join Phil Gomes, Senior Vice President, U.S. B2B Digital Leader, Global Blockchain Center of Excellence at Edelman as he cuts through the hype, discusses what executives can really learn from the most promising pilots, and prepares marketers to ask the right questions of teams and colleagues when they get back to the office.​

People & Places: Harnessing the Power of Location Data to Maximize Marketing Investments

Much of the impact of mobile advertising occurs away from smartphone screens, as the majority of purchases still take place offline in the “real world.” The smartphone, however, is able to add exponential value in the form of insights and measurement, allowing marketers to better understand their customer and unlock the true impact of their campaigns by attributing results to both online and offline initiatives.

The Fallacy of Vanity-Stats Marketing

Performance marketers pride themselves in making better decisions through quantitative data – gone are the days of spray-and-pray. But when have you last taken the time to review the KPIs that your Marketing team is measured on? How do you avoid acting on false positives that trigger a vicious cycle of bleeding cash? Join us for a discussion on the three most common measurement errors that skew ROI – Fraud, Misattribution, and Confirmation Bias – and for a checklist to detect if your ad spend is affected.

Engagement Marketing in the Here and Now

How can you future-proof your engagement marketing team to best capitalize on innovations in technology and data processing? True “just-in-time” cross-channel messaging capabilities mean that collaboration skills and processes are no longer nice to haves, they’re now table stakes for success. If internal teams vary in their ability to test and learn and to iterate, your company’s silos are showing. Your customers will notice, and your business will get left behind. In this session we'll break down the challenges, and share tips and tools that can help create a competitive edge.

The Consumer Engagement Crossroads: Getting Consumers to Opt-in, Before They Opt-out

Consumers are overwhelmed by the number of ads they see and nearly 70% say ads are not relevant to them. However, there is one type of ad format that 80% say provides a better advertising experience - opt-in video. In this presentation, hear findings from a nationwide study that outlines the current consumer mindset around advertising and opportunities for brand marketers going forward. Find out what consumers really think of opt-in video, how brand marketers view opt-in video in relation to more traditional ad formats like pre-roll and the opportunity for opt-in video to expand outside of the world of gaming and into the mainstream.
