In a digital world, time lines and geographies do not matter. And there could not be a better example of this than the insightful keynote address by Mainardo de Nardis, CEO, OMD Worldwide, at the Mumbai leg of the exchange4media Conclave 2010 on June 11. de Nardis, who would be connected Live from New York via video conferencing, would be speaking on digital as the electricity driving and powering the entire marketing services industry.
The highlight of his session would be a presentation on ‘The Digital Inflection Point’, which will be a look at where the global digital landscape is going over the next 2-3 years and how that will continue to shape and change the fundamental principles of consumer engagement. Andy Grove, Co-Founder of Intel, famously talks about the ‘Strategic Inflection Point’ of any business – that is the point at which a business has to fundamentally change in order to grow, or risk becoming obsolete. The rapid evolution of Digital platforms and consumer behaviours is causing a similar inflection point for marketers, who need to fundamentally embrace this in all aspects of consumer engagement – from marketing and communications through to insights, the retail experience and product development – or risk losing relevance and, ultimately, market share.
The presentation would be followed by a Q&A session with de Nardis.
The exchange4media Conclave, the annual flagship event of the exchange4media Group, is special this year as it marks the commencement of the Group’s 10th Anniversary celebrations. The theme for the Conclave this year is ‘Rebooting the Indian media and advertising industry’.
