  • Digital Transformation

    Digital transformation is the theme for our next Digital Marketing Conference, taking place on Thursday 27 November 2014.

    What does transformation mean? It means adapting to changes in technology and understanding consumer behaviour.

    It means adopting new working practices and managing constant change.

    Most of all it means living in a world where consumers engage with brands on their own terms, in their own time, for as long as those brands remain relevant.

    Sounds challenging? It is. Our speakers will explore the nature, pace and impact of rapid digital change. Join us for a day dedicated to the issues reshaping the marketing industry. It could transform the way you do business.
