III. BALANCING CREATIVITY AND ACCOUNTABILITY (11:45AM-12:45PM)
We live in a world of change. The Media landscape is built on a foundation that is constantly in motion, constantly reinventing and recalibrating itself, and where innovation is considered paramount to success. To stand still is to fall behind. And yet, at no time historically has measurement and validation been as important to the industry as it is today. Marketing agencies need to be equal parts Creativity and Accountability. We do not have the luxury of viewing them as counter to one another; instead, we have to find that balance that keeps Creativity and Accountability in harmony. OMD will discuss the role that creativity plays in the relationship between client and agency – why it's vital and how to gauge its value. They willl focus on the importance of a Strategic platform on which to base marketing decisions and media investments and how to measure success in this ever-changing marketplace.
Kathleen Brookbanks, President, OMD East
IV. MEDIA REBATES & INCENTIVES (1:30-2:30PM)
As a follow-up to our last Committee meeting, ANA will share recently published white paper on media rebates/incentives paid by media companies to agencies as well as implications for marketers.
Bill Duggan, Group Executive Vice President, ANA
