THE SEALED AIR STORY: A B2B TURN AROUND STORY

When the new (and current) CEO took office, I was asked to lead the change initiative. The team worked to clarify the portfolio strategy, moving the three companies to three divisions and uniting them under one master brand of Sealed Air: Diversey Care; Food Care; Product Care.  Making this move required developing a new core ideology, including Vision, Mission and Values plus positioning each of the divisions for greater success.  Additionally we created a comprehensive organization and brand identity, working to unite the brands while still giving each division its own aesthetics.  Importantly through all of this, we had to establish a new and comprehensive cascading communications program ensure that the right change messages were translated through the company, at the right levels and with a united language. 

Results:

  1. In just over 15 months, our internal team and outside agency partner were able to help turn the company around
  2. We communicated with more than 25,000 employee globally to gain alignment and trust in the shift
  3. Perhaps most importantly, the stock price improved from $11.51 to $34.10 in just 15 months, and reached a high of $52.80 earlier this year

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION – THE CHANGE ITS DRIVING

We live in a world gone digital, social and mobile. All who wish now have unlimited access to information and people. We are empowered, but overwhelmed. You are competing for attention with competitors and those who wish just to make noise.

Add to this, the buyer you wish to reach has changed more in the just the past year than the previous 10 years combined. Marketing has gotten this memo, but sales has not. Digital Customer Experience modernization has transformed CX in every way. Today CX is on every CEO's top priority list. IN this session we will cover why this transformation has taken place, and what action you should be taking now to stay ahead of the curve, and your CEO.

THE BALANCING ACT: BRAND DEMAND + DEMAND GENERATION

It is an amazing moment in business marketing. We have the ability to reach the right buyer with the right message at the right moment. Still, this is not enough. The true attraction for the business decision maker often goes far beyond hard factors and into something more visceral, communal and humanly relevantToday, more than ever, finding the right balance between igniting brand attraction and efficiently driving lead funnel transactions is essential. Mark and Doug will discuss the crucial factors for creating balance across the entire demand experience and share the most effective ways for business marketers to find and strengthen this balance as they head into their next planning cycle.
