THE TRANSFORMATION OF B2B MARKETING

The Bank of New York Mellon (BNY Mellon) is one of the world's largest global asset servicing companies and a leader in asset management and corporate trust and treasury services. As Chief Marketing Officer, Brenda Tsai drives a dynamic, client-focused marketing strategy across all of BNY Mellon globally, with a strong emphasis on expanding digital marketing expertise and using technology and research to connect with clients more effectively.

In this session, Brenda will share how traditional sales is changing – buying committees, solutions selling, non-linear purchase patterns. All of this elevates the role of B2B. No longer is there a linear path to purchase.

  • It takes a higher level of IQ to understand new emerging personas and sales patterns
  • It takes a higher level of EQ to influence and educate across the organization
  • And it take marketing expertise to be able to leverage the right tools at the right time

MARKETING WITH A PURPOSE: PRACTICAL WAYS TO WALK THE WALK

Purpose is on everyone’s lips in corporate America — but when they talk about purpose, too many leaders are talking to themselves. A recent PwC survey shows that companies’ customers and their own employees often don’t believe what senior management is saying about purpose and values. Marketers can help close the gap, and it’s not a matter of “putting lipstick on a pig.” Marketers can communicate and encourage real progress, bring more employees and consumers on board, better align their own teams with their values, and use new technology to support purpose-related initiatives. In this session, Matthew will discuss concrete ways for marketers to live their purpose. Key takeaways include:

  • Understanding what the “purpose gap” (skepticism around corporate values) is costing organizations
  • Seeing data on what consumers and employees want to see (or hear) from organizations to believe in their purpose
  • Understanding how a diverse workforce and deliberate inclusion efforts drive better outcomes — and how to build diverse, inclusive marketing teams
  • Learning marketing strategies that are especially effective in communicating and inspiring values
  • Seeing common technology mistakes that hold back purpose initiatives and how to do better

BUSINESS TO BUSINESS? THINK 'BRAND' TO ‘BUILD'

Brand building is more important than ever in the world of B2B and this presentation, based on fourteen years of proprietary empirical data, will provide you with the information and insight you need to share internally (and how to do so) with your peers in finance, operations and the C-suite. With your CEO concerned about Wall Street and the next quarter, the CFO about last, sales about today, how do you as marketers share the growth story we all intrinsically know BRAND brings, but struggles to prove? Brand spend is also often easy to cut in hard times because it doesn’t necessarily negatively affect head count.

This presentation shows how known brands investing in brand building efforts, over time, establish stronger brand equity with their customers, deliver superior returns for their shareholders AND are better insulated during times of economic hardship. This is important as shareholder value and return is one common metric everyone in the C-suite understands and shares interest in. This presentation comes to life in the form of compelling case studies and examples alongside an analysis of BrandZ's most valuable B2B brands, including a unique view among BOTH business customers AND everyday consumers. What are the similarities and differences in attitudes? What can B2B brands learn from the world of B2C, and, most importantly, what are the key associations needed to establish and influence strong relationships and unlock growth?

3 key takeaways

  • Brand building is an investment and not a cost
  • Achieving meaningful difference versus competitors is the gateway to growth
  • Five key elements drive meaningful difference for all brands — Purpose, Innovation, Communications, Brand Experience and Love

THE FUTURE OF WORK: HOW TRENDS, MULTIPLE GENERATIONS, AND A PANDEMIC ARE REDEFINING WORK ITSELF

Before the pandemic, workplace transformation was already underway. In fact, many organizations were embracing a future that looked very different to what we called “work” even just 5 years ago. Four generations in the workforce required meeting different work styles. Casual and open workspaces became the norm. And implementing integrated workflows was critical to getting stuff done. Allowing people to work where, how, and when they wanted was the plan for more and more companies.

But now, in response to a global pandemic, we’ve gone through five years of transformation in five months. Employees are all mostly remote, we’ve adapted to this new way of working, and businesses are now asking what’s next. We must now look to the future… and discuss what work even is moving forward.

Leveraging her experience in managing a fully remote team at Cisco, and marketing Webex collaboration technology, Aruna brings unique insight on what is key to enabling businesses to keep thriving. In this talk, she will explore different work styles and generational considerations as well as the three pillars necessary for a successful work in the future: technology, the concept of the workspace, and the culture change required.

Key learnings will include:

  • Ensuring business continuity during the pandemic, and staying competitive
  • Bringing humanity into the workplace of the future
  • Lessons learned and what the future will bring

THE ANA MARKETING FUTURES PODCAST PRESENTS: MARKETING THE U.S. PRESIDENCY

The stakes are high with any marketing campaign, but what about when you’re marketing the next president of the United States of America? It doesn’t get higher than that. With the 2020 U.S. presidential election around the corner, this live from the stage inside peek reveals just how sophisticated the marketing machines that drive modern presidential elections really are. You’ll learn about some of the world’s most sophisticated digital strategies, as well as the critical role data plays in presidential campaigns.

B2B brands have traditionally had an edge when it comes to data, experienced at leveraging first-party data through customer data platforms and account-based marketing, yet B2C brands today seem to move with greater agility and speed to deliver more dynamic personalization. Whether B2B or B2C, a marketer is a marketer, first and foremost. Don’t miss this timely opportunity to learn from other brands, whether local, national, big or small, and no matter the industry.

The ANA Marketing Futures Podcast, one of ANA’s most popular member assets, will be recording live from the conference and welcoming Rob Griffin to the stage, co-founder of Tovo Labs, a progressive digital marketing consultancy that focuses on real content and real people with responsible data practices to drive influence and outcomes. Whatever your marketing focus is in 2020 — be it political, B2B, B2C, or agency-side – there is a sea of change rolling in as tracking, privacy, and data management issues rise and impact your digital plans. The cookie apocalypse is almost upon us, and there’s no time like the present to get ahead of it.
