Round Robin Discussion Groups

The event features small group breakouts hosted by topic experts. Every 20 minutes, we’ll rotate tables to hear from a new expert and meet new peers. By the end of the event, you’ll have been in a discussion group led by each of the three experts. Or, if you love one topic, stay there the whole night while peers rotate around you!

Topic 1: Not an Order Taker: Be a leader in account management

Dealing with a difficult client? Struggling to be a good partner? Worn out from shrinking budgets? Got whiplash from the constant and changing requests?

Account Managers have a difficult job. They’re inundated with contacts, contracts, and more. They’re under pressure to please both their clients and their C-suite. In this session, we’ll dive into (5) common challenges and how to overcome them

Topic 2: The Psychology of Branding

The AMA definition of a brand boils down to “symbol” – but is that enough? Considering how emotional consumers are about some of their favorite brands, looking at branding from the lens of the social sciences may provide more insight – and more tools – to creating brands customers love. Kristian Aloma, PhD will lead this conversation about branding, share what the academic literature has to say, and facilitate a discussion about the best ways to bring psychology into your branding efforts.

Topic 3: Measuring Marketing Impact

Let’s discuss how to simplify the core goals of marketing, the ways to measure that impact, and how to present it to your leadership team.
