NETWORKING BREAKFAST
(9:00 – 9:30AM)
INTRODUCTIONS AND FIRESTARTER (9:30 – 9:45AM)
One of the benefits of ANA Committees is the ability to share and learn from fellow marketers in a “closed door” environment and to leverage and share knowledge and insights with marketing peers. Often times, many marketers have similar challenges in areas like measurement, content marketing, digital advertising, social media best practices, walled gardens, working with influencers, programmatic, how to tap into new technologies like VR, AI, and AR, agency management, etc. During introductions, we will ask members to share 1-2 “hot topics” or key areas of focus/challenge in the digital & social space as a way to facilitate more one-to-one networking between members with similar challenges during coffee breaks and lunch.

I. MEMBER ROUND TABLE DISCUSSION (9:45 – 10:15AM)

II. HEAT + DELOITTE DIGITAL: OWNING SHARE OF *NUANCED* CULTURE (10:15-11:00AM)
Gaining share of culture is about much more than inserting yourself in the conversation; it’s about driving it forward. But as brand acts about diversity, inclusivity, & equality, often start great in theory, they fail to understand the nuance that shape these social movements. Heat researched the impact of cultural nuance on brand storytelling and uncovered its relevance to a brands bottom line. In this session, Heat will dive into nuanced brand actions, the social sentiments that underpin their significance and the business case for nuance storytelling.
