AIMM’S INDUSTRY PLEDGE AND PROGRESS TO ADVANCE DE&I

In response to a year of racial reckoning and the demand for equality for all, ANA’s Alliance for Inclusive and Multicultural Marketing (AIMM) put forth an industry pledge last summer that details steps needed to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion through increased diversity of marketing teams, adequate multicultural budgets, investments in minority owned/targeted media, reflecting all consumers accurately by embedding culture in the creative process, and greater data transparency/quality. AIMM galvanized over 600 leaders across the industry committed to systematic changes and has offered practical tools and resources for transformational change. Join us as we share progress being made on the 7-point AIMM pledge, showcase how AIMM tools and resources have been adopted across the industry, and discuss opportunities to continue the journey to drive equity in 2022 and beyond.

INSIDE, OUTSIDE, SYSTEMWIDE: DRIVING GROWTH WHILE DOING GOOD

Consumer expectations, along with societal and environmental disruptions, are compelling companies and brands to reinvent brand citizenship and become both forces for good in society and forces for growth in business. In what may well be marketers’ biggest challenge yet, such reinvention demands not only novel solutions but systemic changes to ensure lasting impact.

Navigating this sea of change may seem difficult, but in this session, P&G will share their roadmap and discuss the importance of creating systemwide solutions that simultaneously drive growth and do good.

THE GREAT MARKETING DECLUTTER

The boundaries between so many aspects of life – especially our personal and professional lives – have blurred during the pandemic. It has been exhausting, and burnout is a big challenge for marketers. In fact, 81% of marketing executives say that the past year has completely exhausted their employees. After all, marketers have been on the frontlines of all this relentless change as customer needs and priorities have shifted. While the digital revolution has transformed the art and science of marketing, it has also made marketing more complex. More tools, touchpoints and channels have meant more work for marketers.  

In our newest CMO research, we’ve found a small group – just 17% of more than 1,000 marketing organizations – that are thriving despite these challenges. They are decluttering marketing by zeroing in on their customers’ new motivations to serve them in smarter, better ways while outperforming their peers in revenue growth and profitability. Everything else is delegated, automated or discarded. Join this session to learn what’s got them fired-up and accelerating growth in a burned-out world.

HOW TIKTOK'S COMMUNITY COMMERCE IS RESHAPING THE PURCHASE JOURNEY

You may have heard of products having major success on TikTok – often thanks to #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt, the consumer craze that's taken over the app and driven sales for everything from leggings to milk frothers.

What you probably don't know is that there are powerful forces propelling this behavior. In fact, a whole new kind of commerce is emerging on TikTok, with our users at the helm – and it’s transforming the way consumers and brands interact.

Sandie Hawkins, General Manager of North America at TikTok, and Sofia Hernandez, Head of North America Business Marketing, will discuss all of this and more. They'll share research findings that prove the power of the purchase journeys that begin on TikTok and reveal what this tells us about word-of-mouth marketing on the platform and the kinds of opportunities it creates for brands.

QUANTUM MARKETING AND THE POWER OF PURPOSE

Today's marketers face a bevy of misconceptions about their craft. One of the harshest may be that it's self-serving and inauthentic — but great marketers ensure the opposite is true and make an effort to not only understand consumers' needs and wants, but also the state of their lives and their communities. In short, marketing leaders must foster a culture where marketing will be both a force for growth and a force for good.

In this presentation, chief marketing and communications officer of Mastercard and author of Quantum Marketing: Mastering the New Marketing Mindset for Tomorrow's Consumers, Raja Rajamannar, will unveil new rules and thinking about brand purpose and how it can drive marketing leadership, business growth, and customer satisfaction for the future.

DELIVERING WHAT MATTERS: LINKING PURPOSE WITH PERFORMANCE

In June 2020, incoming CEO Carol Tomé signaled it was a pivotal time for UPS. "What got us here isn't going to get us to where we need to be," she said. "Our competitors are changing. Our customers are changing. And the rate of change is accelerating. So, we are leaning into that change."

In this session, Kevin Warren, CMO at UPS, will discuss how the company has met that challenge and is working hard to deliver what matters most for its customers and community, including:

  • Why the brand's role during the pandemic went beyond being "essential."
  • How the brand reshaped its purpose, while keeping an eye on growth.
  • Why making DEI a priority — internally through policies and externally through marketing — is good for customers and business.
  • How UPS is reinventing a more than 100-year-old brand to connect with younger and more diverse audiences, where it has struggled for relevance.
