During the presentation, to be held from 11:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 17 at the Hallmark Visitors Center, Kathy will discuss “The Smart Difference: Becoming the Agents of Change in a Social World.” Drawing on her experience as “a veteran of the global B2B marketing wars,” Kathy will share her insight on the changing responsibilities of marketing executives and how they deal with corporate culture challenges created by social media.
Here’s what you’ll take away from Kathy’s presentation:
- Insight on the changing skillsets for marketing
- Examples of how customer insight can become “delectable content”
- First R&D, advertising and sales, then IT, now HR—framework for how marketing copes with “cats sleeping with dogs”
As someone responsible for global marketing and corporate branding for a $24.4 billion diversified global technology and engineering leader, Kathy knows what she’s talking about. And even though I’ll be on the sunny West Coast soaking up a wealth of B2B marketing and sales knowledge at DemandCon San Francisco, I’m sending V3’s Chief Content Officer, Katy Schamberger, to Kathy’s presentation—it’s going to be a good one, and I don’t want our team to miss out on all of the valuable information and insights that Kathy’s sure to share.
