Q&A with Google's Karim Temsamani

How do you feel the industry is positioned, ready to head into 2015?
Our industry is in constant evolution. Users started moving from desktop to smartphones a few years ago. Mobile messaging is now poised to overtake social networks in the next year. And Asia is now becoming the center of the world, both from a user and innovation perspective. I don’t think it’s worth thinking about how you are positioned any longer, but rather how quickly you can adapt to the changing consumer landscape....

Interview with Geoff Seeley, Global Communications and Planning Director, Unilever.

As the brand who created one of the most iconic content marketing initiatives, with the Dove Real Beauty “sketches” campaign has it been a daunting process to try and step up from here?

We have always held ambitions to unlock the magic of our brands through iconic marketing and it’s not just Dove Sketches that had the wide acclaim - there are several brands that are doing great work. 2014 saw Unilever as the most awarded advertiser at Cannes, the most effective advertiser with EFFIE...

DataXu Q&A Thought Leader Interview

Where should programmatic buying sit in the wider marketing plan for your clients?
Programmatic marketing has evolved so much from even 2 years ago, when RTB was synonymous with remnant inventory. Now, the technology and advances associated with programmatic have made it a core strategic aspect of any digital marketing plan......

09:30 advertising revenue comes from mobile usage, and it has recently introduced tools that allow advertisers to coordinate their messaging with TV and tailor tweet targeting based on internet searches. In China, Tencent's WeChat continues to move from strength to strength, recently having become a commerce platform in its own right. What can each can learn from the other, and where are the similarities and differences in their future business models?

10:15 Harmonious RTB
How can media owners use RTB more effectively? How can the industry ensure buyers and sellers both benefit consistently from this technology? This session will look at how programmatic is changing the game for brands, for example by synchronising media placements to hold people's attention as they move between screens. It will also explore why publishers have yet to fully embrace programmatic, with some claiming that their income has been negatively affected by RTB. In order for RTB to really take off, this perception needs to be remedied and opportunities understood. Programmatic's involvement in the area of content recommendation, for example, is helping publishers to monetise more than they could before — but that might not be immediately apparent.

12:15 Agency Heads Debate: What's Next for the Business of Media
How is the media industry evolving to better serve clients’ business outcomes? Agency heads debate the greater focus on the full consumer journey, from the user experience and to how media agencies are instigating new approaches to paid, owned and earned media. Insights into growth areas such as data, technology and ecommerce and what, how and where is the talent to implement these new focus areas. To what extent can a brand really take control through in-house ‘command centres’, and what issues does this raise? Where do we draw lines between partners versus vendors? What are we doing to challenge the role of agencies as suppliers and the rise of procurement?

13:00 Lunch
14:00 Putting Data to Work
There have been endless discussions around data in recent years, but discussion and data alone do not yield results. Only now are we finally starting to see brands use the mass of data at their disposal to achieve real discernible business outcomes. Most importantly, the marketers that use data intelligently have an opportunity to raise marketing's position and give it a seat at the top table. Here, we will cut through the academic discourses to look at how marketers are using consumer data gathered through media to drive revenue for their companies.

15:30 Winning Talent: Culture, Compensation, Communication
Attracting and retaining key talent depends on creating a culture with a compelling sense of purpose and mission, rich in opportunity for learning and developing skills, and an upside in the success of the venture. Today key talent can easily migrate across platforms and business models so engendering connection and loyalty and motivating key talent requires a compensation package that is competitive with alternate business models that appear to offer more. You need to better comprehend and communicate what you offer and to evaluate the increasing trend to poisoning the relationship at the outset with excessive ‘non-compete’ restrictions on career development. For your own career choices and for your company's survival in the cross-business competition for key talent, you need to comprehend the very different long term incentives — phantom equity, options, restricted stock and deferred compensation — in the context of start-ups, closely held companies and established public companies, and you need to carefully weigh the value and cost of the increasing trend to force talent to stay by imposing career ending shackles instead of creating a culture of opportunity and purpose. The presentation will increase your understanding of how key talent can compare working for start-ups, content companies, consultants, and established marketing services companies, and how you can better attract and retain key talent.

16:45 Keynote presentation: Turning Talent Into Rockstars

In today’s new talent economy, high-potential talent is instinctively drawn to the world of startups and Internet giants, where the individual is king and creative thinking and entrepreneurial spirit rule. Top talent rejects established companies where they feel there’s little opportunity to shine or affect change. At the same time, the talent pool is shrinking, making it harder for companies to hire their way to the future. How do we adapt to this new environment? In this talk, Bonin Bough, VP of Global Media and Consumer Engagement at Mondelez International, will discuss why it’s critical for large companies to start turning their own talent into rockstars in order to compete.

17:15 Content as a business driver

Content marketing is here to stay, and the industry largely agrees that this is a good thing. What it fails to agree on, however, is how to use content strategically. In many cases, its rise has given marketers license to indulge themselves in pursuits that aren’t necessarily in line with brand or business objectives. In short, brands have more freedom to reach people through entertainment and information than they ever have before, and they continue to experiment. The question is, what results are their efforts having in real business terms? The session will examine the current state of content marketing from the perspective of money and achieving strategic goals. Learn about content creation through YouTube Star Ryan Higa and the phenomenon of YouTube celebrities, with which more and more brands are now aligning themselves. What are the data challenges and opportunities surrounding these? What is the next development on the horizon?
