SCOPE MANAGEMENT BY THE NUMBERS

With 2021 just around the corner, marketers are working with their agencies to plan the initiatives, campaigns and specific activities needed to drive growth and build their brands.  At Decideware we call this time of year, “Scope Season”.  While some advertisers have a very rigorous and structure program for scope management, many do not.  As we head into “Scope Season” Steven Wales from Decideware will share a few practical tips to help any advertiser take some simple steps to improve their scope programs in the short term, for long term success.

Back in 2012, Sopan Shah chaired the ANA Advertising Financial Conference when he was head of procurement for global advertising, marketing services, and indirect at Nestlé.  Today, Sopan is chief procurement officer at InterContinental Hotels Group.  His marketing procurement background gives Sopan a unique vantage point as CPO – to help marketers build brands and maximize profitability.

MARKETING AS AN ARCHITECT FOR GROWTH

At HP, marketing has been elevated to be a business solutions provider serving as an architect to drive growth.  There has been a focus on both people and process/systems. It’s important to have talent – both internally and at agency partners – who clearly understand how more effective creative can affect the business. And the partnership between marketing and both finance and IT is more important than ever.  How does procurement fit in?  When procurement has a firm understanding of how marketing can be an architect for growth, there can be huge benefits in identifying the right suppliers for the business.

TAMING THE WILD WEST OF PITCHING

Even before COVID-19 and the unprecedented events of 2020, companies were under enormous pressure to deliver short term results against a backdrop of rising technology, new data requirements and an expectation to deliver users with intuitive and personal experiences for brands. As a result, the client-agency relationship has undergone dramatic change and the demand for new work and partnerships has increased. Out with the old and in with the new - in the words of new business veteran Matt Weiss –”Pitching has become the Wild West” – with a loss of humanity for all involved. The industry has taken notice and it’s time to discuss the good, bad and ugly, together. This session will explore the symptoms and root causes pressuring both clients and agencies and provide practical tips and suggestions, and perhaps most importantly, ideas to responsibly move forward by understanding the requirements on both sides of the relationship.

SUPPLIER DIVERSITY: A CALL TO ACTION

An increasingly diverse population means corporations are placing these communities front and center for their marketing and recruiting efforts. With today’s social unrest, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) are top of mind for most leading corporations. Join the conversation as we share the results of ANA’s first Supplier Diversity Survey, debunk the challenges and learn how you can push your company’s efforts forward in a time where the “diversity trifecta” – Multicultural Marketing, D&I and Supplier Diversity – are more important than ever to evolve DE&I efforts.

MARKETING PROCUREMENT FOR GOOD

The World Federation of Advertisers created a Global Sourcing Board in June 2019, bringing together a group of senior and experienced marketing procurement executives. The objective that unites all members of the Board is to rid the profession of bad practice by showcasing good marketing procurement and how the function positively impacts on our industry. In this session, Tracy Allery, co-chair of the WFA Global Sourcing Board, will introduce the vision and mission of this leadership group, review their 10 standards of principled sourcing for global agency relationships, and provide an update on some of the group’s recent initiatives.

MAXIMIZING VALUE WITH UNION TALENT

One may think that using union talent comes with a hefty price tag. However, the Joint Policy Committee has identified a number of major cost-saving opportunities for advertisers and agencies when using union talent. Stacy Marcus, Chief Negotiator for the JPC and partner at Reed Smith LLP, will discuss how to leverage the JPC’s complimentary services to achieve significant savings under the SAG-AFTRA Commercials Contract. The JPC represents advertisers and advertising agencies who have authorized them to collectively bargain on their behalf with SAG-AFTRA and the American Federation of Musicians.

BUILDING EFFECTIVE PARTNER ECOSYSTEMS

In today’s hyper-connected world, building and cultivating effective partner ecosystems will be a critical differentiator and the recent pandemic has reinforced the importance of this. Leading companies are redefining what it means to be a partner, evolving from transactional models based largely on price to multi-dimensional, strategic relationships which offer all parties in the ecosystem the opportunity to generate value and growth. In 2019, global marketing sourcing at WarnerMedia, with assistance from KPMG, began this journey. Get insight and guidance into what it takes to build and foster a marketing partner ecosystem built on generating growth and value for all parties involved.
