2018 ANA Masters of Marketing Week


 

Growth: Mastering Brands and Driving Results


For five days, a who’s who of CMOs and other industry movers and shakers will share their remarkable stories of mastering brands and driving results in ways that didn’t even seem possible a few years ago. As one past attendee noted, “This is unquestionably the biggest and best gathering of senior marketers in the country, and it's a great opportunity to confirm and learn about the latest trends and recent best practices.” 
By any measure, the ANA Masters of Marketing Conference is the industry’s premier annual event, attracting more than 2,500 attendees.

In addition to the general session stage, we are introducing the Masters Second Stage, an intimate forum for learning what’s new, what’s next, and what matters. At these limited-seating, thought-provoking sessions, you will hear from a range of best-in-class speakers, from companies including Unilever, L'Oreal, Wells Fargo, and Verizon.

You will walk away from each presentation feeling more informed and inspired about using traditional and digital marketing tools, evolving technologies, content, and data to reach target audiences and grow market share. In addition to the distinguished speakers, enjoy a wealth of networking opportunities, golf and tennis, evening entertainment, and much more.

Session 1 – PART 1 – THE END OF ADVERTISING AS WE KNOW IT: NOW WHAT?

Advertising is increasingly invading consumers’ lives. Not only are there too many ads, there is too little attention being paid to brand engagement. The key is to stop selling and do a better job of connecting. Content marketing, programmatic buying, crowdsourcing, and social and digital engagement are transforming how brands advertise. But how can they ensure that messaging is on brand, compelling to audiences, and connects in ways that build brand loyalty every day and in every way? The AEF Symposium will focus on the ways brands can most effectively reach audiences across touchpoints to create meaningful connections. The two-hour session will feature:

Hour one

  • Table exercise on key industry issues and pain points surrounding advertising practices that aren’t working
  • A visionary view of marketing communication’s next steps — stop bombarding, annoying, and selling to customers. New ideas and best practices to win.

Session 3 – BRAND BALANCING ACT: DEBATE BETWEEN DRIVING AWARENESS VS. PERFORMANCE IN THE AI ERA

One of the most important things brands need to do is also one of the hardest: balance the needs of building brand awareness while simultaneously driving business performance. As technology continues to blur the lines between upper and lower funnel tactics, brands need to figure out how best to do both. MikMak's Founder and CEO Rachel Tipograph and Quantcast’s Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Steven Wolfe Pereira will discuss how marketers should manage the balancing act while navigating the rise of direct-to-consumer (D2C) brands, the growing need for 1st party data and the ever-increasing penetration of AI-driven automation and predictive optimization.

THE MOST FEARED FOUR-LETTER WORD IN MARKETING (Main Stage)

In today’s polarizing climate, disruption has all but given way to the era of “safe creative.” A sea of unmemorable content continually deepens as fearful marketers shy away from stepping anywhere near the creative edge. However, brave marketers can capitalize now when others are retreating if they’re willing to face marketing’s most feared four-letter word: RISK. No stranger to the word, Progressive CMO Jeff Charney talks about various elements of the subject, from evaluating individual risk tolerance to managing brand risk. He will highlight how his unique “network philosophy” and taking the right amount of creative risks led to the company’s highly successful roster of creative characters and campaigns that span across both digital and broadcast media. He’ll also explain the risks associated with keeping “Flo,” one of the industry’s longest-running and most memorable brand icons of the 21st century, relevant for 10 years.

MINDSET, MONEY, AND MUSCLE (Main Stage)

The world is moving at a dizzying pace. There is no lack of products, services, or entertainment options to present or promote. The key to success is not only distinguishing your offering but embracing the product’s unique value proposition in the current environment and projecting it into its most viable future state. The WNBA, founded in 1996, recently completed its 22nd season. It is both the longest-running women’s professional sports league and the youngest professional sports league in America. Created as the first NBA product extension, the league features 12 teams and 144 elite female athletes. Professional basketball is now played in more than 200 countries, underscoring sports as one of two international languages (music being the other). Growth of the game of basketball is undeniable; growth of the WNBA has been a work in progress. This presentation will offer insights into the business, including strategies used to generate positive KPIs and results as well as accelerated growth for the future.

It’s almost as if it’s too late for traditional marketers to reinvent themselves. Or is it? Find out if new approaches to media, data and technology can be learned or if it’s time to fire your CMO and start afresh.

EBAY'S APPROACH TO CONSUMER ENGAGEMENT AND BUYER GROWTH (Main Stage)

Digital natives, also referred to as millennials and Gen Z, have incredible buying power and massive online presence. It’s becoming ever-so critical that retailers pay close attention to this new majority of the consumer population. As CMO of eBay Americas, Suzy Deering understands this deeply, as she and her team navigate a new retail and consumer landscape to drive engagement and growth. They’re working to reach customers in an incredibly seamless way and connect with them where they spend their time. To facilitate journeys to purchase, eBay leverages emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, to make the experience of shopping fun again. It has become a playground for discovery, a platform built to connect, where brands partner with sellers, not compete against them. Ms. Deering will highlight eBay’s strategy for consumer engagement and growth, and describe how the company is working to become consumers’ number one shopping destination.

DIVERSITY: GOOD BUSINESS (Second Stage)

Today many marketers are missing a major growth opportunity because they have not adapted their business strategies to reflect the diversification of the marketplace.

This session will highlight growth opportunities across business sectors with examples from Wells Fargo and an in-depth look at why brands must transform the way they do business and go-to-market.

STARTING A SMALL BUSINESS REVOLUTION (Main Stage)

On its centennial in 2015, Deluxe Corp., long known as a maker of checks, needed a major brand transformation. The company made a bold bet with the “Small Business Revolution,” spotlighting small businesses rather than Deluxe itself. Next, recognizing that small businesses are especially under siege in small towns, the company launched the Small Business Revolution — Main Street show, which each season gives one small town and its small businesses a $500,000 makeover. In this session, learn how Deluxe transformed its brand while transforming communities and how all companies can do well by doing good.

We’ve all seen the data on data. It’s the most overhyped, misunderstood, and essential imperative in the marketing industry. So many of the data conversations today seem focused on audience targeting and performance optimization. This discussion will examine the true super-power of data for marketers and the ability to create relevant ads, content, and experiences that will break through the noise and make emotional connections in real-time. Learn about the importance of understanding the mindset and motivation of individuals across the digital ecosystem, and why a marketing data strategy is an essential component of any marketer’s business plan moving forward.

PATH TO GROWTH: A MODERN MARKETING DILEMMA (Second Stage)

The data and technology revolution has created two distinctly different approaches to modern marketing: content marketing versus performance marketing. Content marketing is the evolution of brand marketing and seeks to create growth by building consumer relationships and long-term brand value using content and context. Performance marketing seeks to create growth by maximizing immediately measurable ROI and related metrics. Both approaches are fighting for companies’ growth agendas and marketing dollars. This session will share stories of each of these paths to growth, as well as lessons learned through the lens of Clorox’s two recent acquisitions in the vitamin, mineral, and supplements category.

IN-HOUSE: CHALLENGING MYTHS TO BUILD A NEW TYPE OF AGENCY (Second Stage)

During Cannes 2018, George Felix, marketing director at KFC, presented a slide that stated, “The road to mediocrity is paved by in-house creative.” He had a valid point. In-house creative teams haven’t made creative excellence a priority, and as such, have deserved the reputation for bad creative output. But mediocre creative work doesn’t only come out of in-house teams. There are plenty of established creative agencies serving a variety of clients producing mediocre work. When built with passionate talent, in a culture that harnesses great creative ideas, in-house agencies can make a long-lasting positive impact. They are closer to the brand than anyone else, more invested in solving problems, and can make decisions faster. In this session, learn how 140, the in-house agency for Verizon, debunked the six most common in-house agency myths.

THE CHANGING MARKETING OPPORTUNITY (Main Stage)

Once considered an art, marketing is now both an art and a science. CMOs, as strategic influencers in the C-suite, must assess market trends and needs and act on data-driven insights that contribute greater value and measurable results across the enterprise. In fact, more than 70 percent of CMOs say their ability to lead organizational growth and change is now essential to their professional success. As visionaries, CMOs need to instill a culture of customer-centricity through creativity, innovation, collaboration, and governance, and bring in the voices of clients, employees, and partners alike. Michelle Peluso will discuss what it takes to create a data-driven and client-centric culture, fostered by a nimble, agile workplace, where change is the only constant.

GDPR: THE MOUSE THAT ROARED (REDUX) (Second Stage)

Much like the satirical movie, The Mouse that Roared, where the European Duchy of Grand Fenwick decided to invade the U.S. over a wine dispute, Europe is again at our doorstep preparing for an invasion. This time, it’s over data and consumer privacy under the guise of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and soon to be released e-Privacy Directive. Both pieces of legislation turn the traditional notions of interacting with consumers in the U.S. on its head. The reaction of many brands has been, “That’s not my problem. I don’t market in Europe so the GDPR doesn’t apply to me.” Not only is that conclusion wrong, we now have a number of states passing legislation that, in comparison, is worse in limiting the use of consumer data than the GDPR. This session will explain why the GDPR and its offspring are a concern of every marketer, and how to make this legal maze manageable in a world of walled gardens, conflicts of interests, and regulatory investigations.

DEFYING INDUSTRY NORMS TO DRIVE UNCONVENTIONAL GROWTH (Main Stage)

Since 1950, King’s Hawaiian has grown from a small bakery in Hilo, Hawaii, to a national brand primarily through word of mouth. In 2013, Erick Dickens joined the company as SVP and CMO to create a world-class marketing organization designed to help the brand expand into new markets and launch new categories of products. The King’s Hawaiian marketing team has embraced the brand’s unconventional approach and appetite for taking risks by disrupting the traditional agency model, minimizing inefficient digital spend, and reaching consumers through live events, professional sports, entertainment properties, and high-impact TV. As a result, the brand has doubled in size, with consecutive years of double-digit growth and significant gains in both household penetration and purchase frequency.

HOW A STORIED BRAND JOURNEYED INTO CONTENT (Main Stage)

For nearly 125 years, The Hershey Co. has built a beloved brand through strong storytelling in traditional media outlets and owned experiences like Chocolate World. But as digital transformation became a necessity for large marketing operations, the historical chocolate manufacturer needed a new way to approach content that would carry Hershey, its brands, and its experiences into the future and resonate with modern audiences. Over the past year, the company embarked on two distinct paths to make this vision a reality, creating an in-house branded content studio and using content to transcend the physical boundaries of its experiences in Hershey, Pa. In this session, hear key learnings from these two content journeys, including the challenges of monetization, the importance of scale, and how to build and execute a vision spanning more than 100 years.

HOW MICHELOB ULTRA REVIVED THE LIGHT BEER CATEGORY (Main Stage)

It’s no secret: American light beer has seen better days, with declines in volume, occasions, and category share. To defy this trend, Michelob ULTRA took an unconventional approach: It began behaving like an active lifestyle brand. Leveraging the consumer belief that one should be able to “work out and go out” and that “you can stay fit and stay fun,” the brand introduced its new positioning during Super Bowl 50 with a series of smart partnerships and activations, as well as strategic content. In two short years, Michelob ULTRA’s new active lifestyle persona has bucked the category’s decline, leading to skyrocketing growth for the brand. Michelob ULTRA is now the sixth-largest player in its sector, and to date, has become a clear standout brand in the light beer category.
