In this session, you’ll learn how to drive new and rapid innovation in your digital strategies to accelerate revenues by adapting to the next generation of marketing. The See, Think, Do, Care framework will be presented to help you make key changes that will impact your business now.
Analytics on the Bleeding Edge
Most analytics happens after all the money has been spent, and then it often lacks a strategic impact. It does not have to be this way. We have access to an incredible wealth of permission-based data, invaluable tools, and intelligent algorithms. The challenge is imagination. In his forward-thinking keynote, Avinash will share what it takes to dramatically re-imagine the influence data can have, before, during, and after you spend money, to deliver a competitive advantage. He will help you translate his “smart clusters” framework in a way in which you can activate data’s value, faster & smarter.
