Brands have a profound impact on society and culture.
The movements we champion, the people we promote, and the campaigns we launch – all influence the perceptions of humans around the world.
Consumers recognize our influential power and have become more interested in the values we stand for than the products themselves. So, how can you follow their lead, move beyond marketing, and create real communities passionate about your brand purpose?
Strategic Marketing 2021 (Oct 12-13, Virtual Forum) is uniting the world’s most influential CMOs to discuss the impact of brands on society, challenge what it means to be a brand and map a new future for marketing – one where brands are purpose-driven, campaigns are intelligently data-backed, and innovation drives growth.

Molly Battin, EVP & Global Communications and Corporate Marketing Officer, Turner Broadcasting System IncThe challenge to break through the clutter and engage audiences is getting harder and harder as more and more entertainment options fill the marketplace, so I’m looking forward to connecting with peers and marketers alike as we are all navigating the changing marketing landscape together: testing, learning and iterating

Will Cady, Head of Brand Strategy, RedditSummits like Incite Marketing are where we can gather and meet the faces, names, and motivating factors that give form to the community we’re all a part of… We are all in the process of redefining the very basics of what it means to be a marketer and to be a brand. A transformation like that can only be achieved with clarity by moving through it together.
Connie Chan Wang, Director, Global Brand Marketing, LinkedInI’ve worked in tech in Silicon Valley for 15 years and am very aware that I operate in a bubble, and the only way to break out of that bubble is to consciously connect with those outside of it. In this constantly changing landscape we are operating in as marketers, learning from those with different perspectives has never been more important.
Alex Weinstein, SVP, Growth, GrubhubOur field is rapidly changing, and one of the most effective ways to keep up is to learn from peers. It’s also valuable to take a step back and remove yourself from the day-to-day minutia of the job to see the forest for the trees.
Erin Gulden, VP, Inbound Marketing, US BankAs marketers, we all have both shared and unique experiences within our companies, verticals and even channels. Attending marketing summits, like Incite, allows us to learn from one another and discover how we can apply the latest technology and best practices to our own work. Learning from one another is how we better experiences for our customers and results for our companies.
With over 5,000 attendees, this is the premier platform to meet with and learn from those who are successfully navigating this period of uncertainty. Now, more than ever, we must come together and share our stories and find answers to our questions. This is the who's who of the marketing community and you won’t find better networking anywhere.
Brands have a profound impact on society and culture. The movements we champion, the people we promote, and the campaigns we launch influence the perceptions of humans around the world. So, marketers must ask themselves: What is the impact of my brand on society? What would the world look like without it? And how can we move beyond marketing to create real communities that believe in our purpose?
