Russ Klein, CEO of the American Marketing Association Discusses the “State and Future of Marketing”
Klein will provide his worldview of how marketing and the marketer have changed in a network-driven world. He will share his easy to remember formula for what constitutes a “modern brand.” Klein will also posit several provocative challenges to concepts marketers once used as irrefutable frameworks (such as the 4Ps) that are fast becoming either obsolete or radically transformed. Klein’s commentary will spur you to think differently about your role as a marketer. Lastly, Klein will share his answer to the question, “Who will win the epic battle between technology and humankind?”
