  • I am not what are we trying to achieve here..talking of marketing and competitive advantage and hardly any official presence online!! Where are the challenges that CMOs today are faced with? where is the talk of capabilities that marketers need to build to bring them at par with the technology and business? what about ROI?Analytics, automation and most importantly, the empowered customers?…still a long way to go..

  • It was a great conference showcasing the Who’s Who of Pakistan’s marketing world and comprising of presentations that revealed a plethora of marketing insights that enriched the learning of all marketers attending it.

    Of course it had its share of shortcomings as well, most notably the cramped seating arrangement which may do for a few hours event but is debilitating for a full-day event. Then there was the time management issue, with the event ending 1.5 hours late than the scheduled close. But all in all it was a conference worth attending.
