The New Working Reality. A world of talent, not just an office-full

Tarik Sedky
Founder, Pure

Converging trends and a global pandemic have conspired to change forever the way work gets done in the marketing world.
Fading big-agency dominance, changing client-side attitudes toward freelancers, better technology and an extended work-from-home mandate have conspired to transform the way work will get done from here.  When Tarik launched Pure in NYC in 2010, his “distributed delivery” model was considered novel.  Thirteen years later, Pure has grown significantly but retains its original operating framework and philosophy.  Tarik will share lessons learned and a view of how successful marketers can leverage the new work reality to their benefit while avoiding some costly pitfalls.

Good humans. Better brands.

Mohammed Anwar

President and CEO

Chris Pitre

Vice President at Culture+

We talk about the marketing, but rarely discuss the team behind the marketing. What makes a high-performing marketing team, whether it’s internal, agency, or a mix? This session dives deeper into what shapes high-performing culture, unleashing teams to push their creativity and collaboration sustainably. Marketing leaders and contributors will learn how they can create a workplace where everyone belongs, resilience lives, and success is sustained.

Attendees will learn how 6 key behaviors can build into relationships, systems, processes, and policies that enable high-performing teams and sustainable results. Through empathetic storytelling and our vulnerability, leaders from Softway and co-authors of the Wall Street Journal bestseller Love as a Business Strategy will leave attendees with quick wins and long-term strategies to strengthen their culture.

In this engaging session, we will:

  • Provide marketing leaders and contributors with a real world framework for strengthening culture
  • Share tactics that can improve the employee experience (and work) regardless of budget, team size, or industry
  • Give examples and stories that support theoretical concepts around culture
  • Offer results that prove how culture impacts the bottom line, including tools that business leaders can get to support their own culture transformation
Artificial Intelligence in Marketing – A Case for Optimism

Michael Bell, Ph.D.
Chief Data Scientist, Technoir

Organizations rely on marketers to bring bold new ideas into the world through every means possible. Today those means have expanded to include artificial intelligence (AI), which has already begun to enhance efficiency and performance among marketing teams. However, there is justified concern about the ethical use of AI and whether increasingly human-like automation will eliminate many professional roles as we know them today. 

This presentation makes a case for optimism that hinges on a deep and ongoing commitment to professional development. I will share what I know about today’s marketing-relevant AI tools and techniques and the trajectory they are following. I will also discuss how collaborations with data professionals can foster innovation that serves to elevate rather than eliminate marketing roles.

For the foreseeable future, AI will not replace a marketer’s unique ability to communicate vision through intuitive storytelling and to create genuine human-product connections. Nevertheless, professionals who take advantage of AI and follow corresponding developments will have a competitive advantage. Join me for this talk to learn more about the intersection of AI and marketing and how to position yourself as a data-driven, AI-savvy marketer in the years ahead.
