Topic overview:The return of the relationshipOnce upon a time email marketing was all about creating a one to one relationship with the recipient. However these days it seems that many companies send you a welcome e-mail and then drop you straight into an offer and product feature based blast strategy with little or no customisation.This keynote address will look at whether a relationship is still as important today and if recipients genuinely expect a tailored approach.

Our world is about change. And the pace of that change is extraordinary. New ideas, new ways of living and working, and a constant process of evolution mean that our world is at once bigger, and smaller than it has ever been before.
And at the heart of that change is technology. Technology that not only has the power to shape the way we see the world, but enable us to transform it. We have seen that technological revolution can power real revolution – helping people be heard and shaping social change in a way that has reverberated around the globe, and leaving no doubt that by connecting with each other, people have real power.
Play this before you start talking...
Because at the heart of technology – and at the heart of business, are people. People do business with people. And where businesses find success – now and in the future – is where they make that single connection. The one that enables them to reach a customer, create a relationship, and satisfy a demand. The link that allows them to connect with each person they do business with, and by doing so, engage, challenge and energise a society.
In the future, more than ever before, success will be defined by the ability to connect with people. Because the future of business is human. The future of business is you.We believe in you For everyone that has started their own business, there’s been a defining moment. A point at which you stopped dreaming and planning, and start doing. The time when you go from the safety and security of working for someone else to make that leap into the unknown. To strike out on your own, becoming the owner of your own business. In doing so, you’ve made that very human decision to take a risk, follow the harder path, invest more of yourself, define your own future and create something of your own.
When we start out in business – things seem easier and simpler. Initially it’s usually a transaction between a buyer and a seller. But as a business grows, things get more complicated as you need to connect with more and more stakeholder – suppliers, team members, your accountant, lawyer, the ATO, distributors and so forthThe key to the business of the future is making your connections smarter and leveraging them is a simple and intuitive way.
No matter what the future holds – the future of business will always be about people and connection. In the future, it’s how a business leverages connections that will define their success

There is a danger that as technology reduced the cost of some marketing channels (especially email) – that we don’t see that we are making a significant investment in media and therefore are not compelling to invest in creating quality content that engages and is relevant.
