60 Trends in 90 Minutes

This event is over.

This session is available as a member-benefit to full ANA members only. Seats are limited and confirmation of attendance will be required in advance of the session.


What’s new? What’s trending? What’s coming up from behind and could inspire changes in how you do business?  Knowing the latest fads and trends will make you a better marketer and give you a competitive advantage. How will the shift in consumer-centric marketing affect your business? Which social media platforms are hot—and what’s on the horizon? It’s 60 tips from the latest news, the newest ideas, the radical and practical thinking that will impact your daily work and your long-range strategic direction. Sometimes brilliant. Sometimes ludicrous. Occasionally contradictory or contrarian, "60 Trends in 90 Minutes" can create just the right buzz that will shake up your thinking about the road ahead.

There will be 30 minutes of Q&A with the speaker after the workshop.
