WHAT'S THE NEW MARKETING PLAYBOOK?
Today’s CMO must be a data scientist, technologist, media planner, and media company. The days of dialing up the GRP load, sponsoring a golf tournament, and calling an agency to do everything are over. But that means there’s never been a more awesome time to be a marketer. There have never been more tools, tech, and ways to connect with consumers. CMO Kristin Lemkau shares how JPMorgan Chase is leveraging this time of opportunity to develop a new marketing playbook to make sure it keeps its position as a market leader.

PLUS IS EQUAL: HOW BODY EQUALITY BECAME A NATIONAL CONVERSATION
To overcome the last acceptable form of bias – “fat shaming” — Lane Bryant in 2015 stepped up to champion plus-size women and show them as they see themselves: beautiful, sexy, and proud. Join Brian Beitler, EVP and CMO at the plus-size fashion retailer, to learn how it led its customers “out of the closet” and changed media and fashion category norms, challenged misperceptions around body image, and confronted the issue with a most progressive marketing effort.

TRANSPARENCY, HUMILITY, AND MANAGING THE NARRATIVE OF AN ICONIC BRAND
While the 2016 World Series victory by the Chicago Cubs is hailed for ending the longest drought in all of professional sports, what is less known is the dramatic role that savvy business management and brand marketing played in helping to deliver this improbable result. Alison Miller, the Cubs’ VP of marketing, and David Selby, president and managing partner at SCC, the Cubs’ agency, discuss the inside story of managing the narrative of the team’s brand as it evolved from “lovable losers” to world champions over a brief but intense four-year period. They will share the brand strategy, story, and advertising; how transparency, humility, and a deep sense of understanding combined to invite fans along on this incredible journey; the impressive results that occurred both on and off the field; and how the narrative pivoted for the 2017 season.

BEHIND THE GROWTH OF DOSOMETHING.ORG
CEO Aria Finger shares the behind-the-scenes story of how she grew DoSomething.org, a global movement for good, to actively engage 5.5 million members in various efforts to improve the world around them — all in just five years.

User insights led Ms. Finger to eliminate most of DoSomething’s product offerings and instead offer wide variety within just one product: action campaigns. She grew 25 annual campaigns into 250 unique, ongoing campaigns, a move that required complete restructuring of the engineering, marketing, and business development teams. Today, DoSomething is one of the most recognized nonprofit brands in the U.S. among its target audience of people under 25.
