Second, we'll dig deeper into the ABM technology landscape with specific scenarios, and discuss the right combination of technology and tools for each.

TURNING THE TITANIC INTO A SPEEDBOAT: HOW JPMORGAN CHASE ADOPTED A START-UP MENTALITY TO DELIVER THE PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM IN EIGHT DAYS

As the Nation’s largest bank and a global brand, bureaucracy can sometimes get in the way of getting things done quickly.  Faced with the challenge of delivering the new Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to more than 4 million   business customers during an unprecedented pandemic, JPMorgan Chase had to rewrite the playbook to get the much-needed funds into hands of business owners.

Marketing played a critical role in getting the program out the door and we’ll discuss the lessons learned from a leadership perspective, new processes adopted, and communications delivered to help Chase become the number one provider of Paycheck Protection Program loans.

HOW A SOFTWARE FIRM TAPPED INTO EMOTION TO RESHAPE B2B MARKETING

How does a brand stand out and capture attention and mindshare when your audience is already overwhelmed with marketing messages? How can brands connect with prospective customers when the buying process continues to grow in complexity and risk?

Brands for humans is not just the marketing hot topic of the moment, but rather a formula for how to relate to and capture the attention of your buyers. Hear from Ping Identity CMO Kevin Sellers how a relatively unknown software and SaaS company tapped into emotion to reshape its company image and become more relatable and recognized in the cyber security market.

In this fun and upbeat presentation, come learn how:

  • B2B buyers are really just consumers with titles and how to leverage that knowledge to be a better B2B marketer
  • How emotion and brand resonance is not just about vanity statistics but drives real demand and demand gen efficiency
  • In the end, it really is all about the message

ARE B2B MARKETERS READY TO BE GROWTH DRIVERS? THE DEBUT OF B2B’S FIRST-EVER GROWTH MARKETING MATURITY INDEX

During the pandemic and as we emerge from it, B2B marketers have stood up to all the challenges and demonstrated ever-growing strength and agility. So, are CMOs and their organizations now able to assume the mantle of growth drivers for their businesses, progressing from a more traditional role as sales enabler or in some cases growth enabler? At this session, the findings of a major Growth Marketing Maturity study completed by Stein IAS and The Effectiveness Partnership (TEP) will be revealed. Stein IAS Chairman Tom Stein and Chief Innovation Officer Marc Keating will be joined by TEP Strategic Partner Mark Stockdale to share findings for the very first time. At this session:

  • See strengths, weaknesses and opportunities as revealed by enterprise marketers -- from core strategy to results planning to operations
  • Discover the prioritized layers of the ‘growth stack’ – the critical capabilities that connect business strategy to growth realization
  • Benchmark your own maturity as a growth driver vis a vis the maturity of your peers

CUSTOMER VALUATION FINALLY COMES OF AGE

Marketers have been throwing around terms such as CLV, LTV, and a variety of other labels for several decades now. But besides a few notable applications it has been mostly “cheap talk” –  either an unfulfilled aspiration on the part of managers, or a "quick and dirty" analysis, lacking proper validation, that is used by a small group within the firm but fails to get traction across the organization. Fortunately, these frustrating days are ending: customer valuation is finally coming to the forefront and it is here to stay.  A variety of factors are driving this change, including better customer-level data (far more timely, complete, and accurate than ever before); better computing and IT skills (enabling a broader set of managers to build and use these models), and a stronger competitive imperative (as more firms shift from product- to customer-centric thinking).  In this talk we will discuss this important trend, its implications for executives, and cover a few recent examples of companies (both B2B and B2C) that have used customer valuation in surprising ways and with compelling results.

HOW B2B BRANDS GROW

What are the fundamental principles of brand growth in B2B marketing? Which marketing decisions lead to the best business outcomes? In this session, we will unveil new research from the B2B Institute and the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute that has the potential to revolutionize our understanding of how B2B brands grow. We will explain why “mental availability” is the most important metric in marketing, why “brand love” is a dangerous delusion and why marketers should focus on future cash flows. These are contrarian ideas, grounded in empirical research, that can give you a durable competitive advantage in B2B.

PUSHING CREATIVE BOUNDARIES AND BUILDING RICHER EXPERIENCES FOR CUSTOMERS

How NI is driving a customer-centric transformation

Customers' expectations of B2B brands are constantly shifting, and we as marketing leaders must continuously improve the customer experience and move our businesses closer to their needs. When these efforts are done well and thoroughly, we can find ourselves in positions of conflict with company-wide historical approaches, beliefs, and a "this is how we've always done it" mentality that can be challenging to overcome.

To move closer to the customer though, we must act boldly, challenge previous decisions, and consult and bring internal stakeholders and external partners on the journey with us. In this session, NI CMO Ana Villegas will share the transformation journey the organization is on and new, innovative ways the company is reaching its customers.

During the session, Ana will cover:

  • The business and marketing challenges that led us to the decision to transform our Marketing organization and the upside of consolidating roles and functions with clear mandates and charters.
  • How its new approach is working today, obstacles marketing leadership has overcome, and how the organizational changes have enabled faster, more agile decision making and execution.
  • The critical path to building partnerships with internal stakeholders and external agencies so that the organization, together, can push creative boundaries and build richer experiences for customers.

B2B BRANDING TENETS ACROSS THE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE

What makes a strong and lasting brand? And why is crafting and maintaining a powerful brand critical even in the days of data-driven marketing? This presentation will answer these questions by walking through the blueprint for B2B branding including best practices and the tenets of an impactful brand strategy that resonates across the customer journey.

Key takeaways:

  • B2B companies that don’t take an active role in crafting their brand are leaving perception up to chance.
  • No matter how precise B2B marketers become in their performance-driven tactics, brand strategy—which is sometimes more difficult to measure—will always be critical to a company’s overall go-to-market approach.
  • Although crafting, maintaining, and evolving a brand strategy is a creative process, data and insights should inform the creation and ideation work.

PURPOSE AND PERFORMANCE: THE MATH, THE MAGIC, AND THE CUSTOMER

The events of the past 18 months have clouded our vision as marketers, but as we emerge some familiar tensions remain. One challenge is reconciling “Purpose” – helping customers and employees realize deeper connections to the communities they inhabit – and “Performance” – using data and analytics to mine value from perpetually scarce resources. Conventional thinking holds these in opposition and maybe too often “Performance” wins out. Yet now, more than ever, to win customer and employee loyalty, we must deliver on their search for meaning and earn their trust. To do that our “Purpose” must reinforce our “Performance.” So the question is: What, as marketers, do we do?

In a fireside chat, Alicia Tillman, most recently CMO of SAP and currently Board Director for the Gates Corporation and RainFocus, will reflect on her experiences with balancing “Purpose” with “Performance” at one of the world’s great “left-brain” brands and share thoughts on what’s coming next along this fascinating fault line of our craft.

According to the most recent Gartner CMO Spend Report, brand strategy has leap-frogged to the top of marketing capabilities, from its lowly position near the bottom of the list in 2019, with one-third of CMOs now placing it in their top three. And, in a time when marketers from SMBs to enterprises have had to rethink their marketing mix and focus even more on their customers, brand purpose, definition and differentiation are more critical than ever.

Join senior marketing leaders from one of the world’s largest life sciences companies, Thermo Fisher Scientific (NYSE: TMO), and their agency partners from Retina, the ANA 2020 B2B Agency of the Year, as they discuss the global transformation of their Gibco brand.

MARKETING IS HALF OF STRATEGY

Strategy used to be a periodic, largely financial exercise – deciding how capital was to be allocated to markets (“where to play”) and in support of business capabilities (“how to win”). But in dynamic, multi-stakeholder environments, strategy has become a continuous exercise of adaptation to ensure that your company is maintaining its Fit to Purpose (its relevance to customers and other stakeholders) and Relative Advantage (its distinctiveness).

In this context, the ability of B2B marketers to understand how to evolve the franchise of their business is of strategic significance. In this closing session of the conference, we will explore how B2B marketers can fulfil this role and show how “soft” concepts such as purpose, employee engagement and brand have become key drivers of business value.
