With marketing evolving rapidly in response to adoption of emerging digital communication techniques and changing buyer behaviour, it's imperative that the skill set of the marketing function evolves too, to reflect this and to enable the brand to compete effectively in the digital age.
Furthermore, marketing must be able to concisely communicate and report on the value of what they are delivering for the organisation, to all departments and particularly to the board. Fresh from delivering Deloitte's Olympics sponsorship, brand and marketing director Annabel Pritchard will focus on how to build a marketing function that's fit for purpose and structured around delivering clear and measurable business benefits. This session will cover:
•Structuring the team - ensuring a dynamic mix of specialisms across the marketing function
•Managing and nurturing the marketing team - encouraging learning and skills development
•Raising the profile of marketing - reporting value to the Board and championing the value of marketing across the business.
