II. MARKETING & SALES IN A BRAVE NEW WORLD (11:00AM–12:00PM)
Today's buyer comes to the 'sales moment' with more knowledge than ever. No longer relying on the sales representative to educate and inform, the buyer is turning to online resources and their own social networks for information. The reality is that the buyer is socially empowered and in the driver's seat. Marketers and sellers who embrace this new relationship – will uncover a kind of revenue growth they've never seen before. This session will cover: the death of the sales cycle, the birth of the revenue cycle and what you can do now.
Phil Fernandez, President and CEO, Marketo, Inc

This provocative presentation, will showcase why putting strategy and design at the heart of marketing campaigns results in the purest and most credible manifestation of brand values.
