How CMOs Can Create Long-Term Value -- Not Just More Change -- in the Midst of Intense Upheaval
Brought to you by MediaLink
Presented by Andrea Redniss, MediaLink Executive Vice President
Lots of things were meant to be left behind in 2020, and that includes the idea of traditional agency reviews. Instead, modern brands are better served to focus their efforts on transforming their organizations and partnerships and reframing ideas around what it means to create value – and an increasing number of them are recognizing this. The events of the past year in particular have completely upended what consumers want and need from brands in the first place thanks to massive behavior shifts -- making a complete brand value proposition overhaul nothing short of table stakes for any marketer hoping to drive growth. But brands need to go even farther than that, argues MediaLink Executive Vice President Andrea Redniss.
In this session, she will outline how brands should think about reevaluating their resources, capabilities, processes, partners and structures in reaction to a consumer landscape that looks entirely different from nine months ago. She will also help brands debunk misconceptions about building effective, value-driven agency partnerships in 2021.
