Mathew Sweezey, Head of Thought Leadership for B2B Marketing, Pardot

Keynote: "Marketing as a Mindset not a Department: 5 Lessons for Driving"

Abstract: When we live in a world where more people have access to mobile phones than clean drinking water, we need to re-think the foundations of engagement. Modern engagement happens 24/7 and is not departmentally bound. Everyone is social, and everyone is connected – customers, prospects, and employees. This brings us to the question: "Why then is marketing still considered a departmental role?" Spend some time with Mathew as he explores the historical reasons many companies currently fail at marketing, and learn how to drive authentic customer engagements that drive demand in the future.

Carlos Hidalgo, CEO and Principal, ANNUITAS

Keynote: "Transforming Marketing to Drive Innovation"

Abstract: There is no doubt that B2B marketing has changed dramatically over the last 5-10 years. We have seen changes in how buyers buy, an influx of technologies to enable demand generation, an avalanche of data, the rise of content marketing, more reliance on marketing to drive revenue, and more. However, even with all of these advancements, marketers themselves have made minimal gains. Research studies for the last 6 years show that marketers continue to grapple with the same challenges year after year with only incremental improvement in results. And, a recent survey found that only 8% of marketers feel respected by their peers.

To secure a seat at the executive table, today’s B2B marketers need to be innovative, results-oriented and squarely focused on a strategic vs. tactical mindset. However, this requires wholesale change.

In this keynote session, Carlos Hidalgo will discuss the need for marketers to innovate, why change is so difficult to achieve, and what immediate steps organizations can take to transform their marketing and drive innovation.
