4. Not your average conference
The format of the Summit in some ways is just as important as the content. We try to make sure that all our sessions are as interactive and interesting as possible. PowerPoint is banned from nearly all sessions.
We believe that a conference should be a place for senior execs to come together to overcome tough challenges and map the future of their industry. Every one of our sessions is a discussion, where senior marketing executives are asked tough questions by their peers. There will be live case study scenarios, roundtable discussions, Q&A sessions – making #CSMEU a Summit where you, the delegate, take centre-stage.
