Agility is the name of the game for Digital Ascendants in 2019. Challenged with moving at the break-neck pace of consumers and competitors, it’s a pressure cooker to get into market faster and faster while simultaneously upping one’s relevance. As Marc Pritchard says, “the marketing industry doesn’t move fast enough to turn disruption into opportunity.” So how do marketers take control, re-skill themselves, and speed toward their desired outcomes?  


In 2019, we’ll discuss key areas for marketers to step up their business including:

The agility + speed required to become a growth CMO or Chief Growth Officer

Quickly identify + capitalize on the opportunities produced by disruption

Build agile organizations that responde faster to changes in the marketplace

Scale the team, tech + processes to deliver growth

Fast-track executive alignment + coordinated action

How to own + share success

Accelerate digital + workplace transformation to improve customer experience

Putting data to work in real-life

Bridging tech stacks that bridge gaps
