“Corporate marketing needs to evolve if it is to deliver greater value. Therefore many companies are restructuring and rebuilding their marketing departments,” TLG said.
“Embracing transformation, technology and leadership are key to succeeding in this process. Marketing needs to manage brand engagement in a meaningful way to connect with customers. From utilising social network information to enhancing the shopping experience, marketing is required to be innovative to enhance its ROI and accountability.
“A key consideration is the need to synchronise marketing with sales teams in order to be more effective, penetrate critical customers and reach consumer groups in emerging markets. Attend this forum to benchmark how other corporate marketing departments are facing these challenges; hear their perspectives.”
The event is sponsored by Autonomy, an HP company.
