How can brands build individual relationships at scale using sophisticated data platforms. And how will technology disrupt the media environment, product development and new brand channels? And yes, it’s also about managing massive amounts of data, and using real-time reporting and analytics — but in the end, all brand efforts will only be successful if the message and the brand activity reach the heart of the consumer.

Advertising Week Europe: Marketing To Emotions: The Humanity In The Data, March 21, 2017 London, England
We know that emotive content and messages work best, as all studies on virality point to that fact. Since people feel first and think second, emotion is what stands out from the clutter and is remembered most. There’s no dispute that algorithmic purchases improve ROI and aid in more efficient spend, but are we forfeiting connecting with our audiences in a visceral way because of our relentless drive towards automation and efficiency? Emotion and data — can marketers have it both ways? Learn how brands and agencies are using data and tech while still developing, telling and marketing meaningful messages to the consumer.
