HELLO PRODUCTS: A FRIENDLY DAVID-VERSUS-GOLIATH STORY

Hello is a brand of “seriously friendly” oral care products, including toothpastes, mouthwashes, and breath sprays, that launched in April 2013.  This tiny company (fewer than 10 people!) has gotten its products on some of the largest retailer shelves in the U.S. in record time, and is leading a valiant charge against titans such as P&G, Colgate, and J&J.  Founder and CEO Craig Dubitsky is obsessed with innovation and design, and has a history of advising, investing in, and creating transformational consumer brands such as Method and eos. The Hello story — which includes meaningful disruption in media and merchandising - is inspirational and will leave you with the confidence to take on the world.

MARKETING INNOVATIONS THAT MADE THE JFK PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY DIGITALLY FAMOUS

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston is dedicated ‘to the memory of our nation’s 35th president and all those who through the art of politics see a new and better world.’  In this session you’ll hear from former JFK Library Foundation Executive Director Tom McNaught and the Kennedy Presidential Library's 20-year marketing partner, John Adams, chairman of The Martin Agency, about their efforts that have won global awards and recognition -- including an Emmy last year -- and increased museum admission and online visitation along the way. From continually re-curating digital content to extending the legacy of John F. Kennedy to new audiences through the power of online and social media story building, innovation is the cornerstone of this compelling case.
