For Millennials who grew up in a world of brands, tuning out advertising is as simple as ignoring a phone call; only when the person on the other end is saying something that matters will they listen. Marketing in the 21st century isn’t about how brands reach people but why people should reach for them. It requires rethinking the effectiveness of advertising, questioning working vs. non working dollars and ensuring that value propositions do, in fact, create shared value. There are no shortcuts, Millennials are all too eager to call BS. But there is a method for framing our marketing plans in a way that invites participation.

By the end of this webinar, you'll understand:

-A process for grounding marketing initiatives in a way that’s relevant with culture and creates shared value

-The six macro forces shaping today’s business environment and their implications for the future

-The seven key trends Millennials have inspired and what brands can do to intersect with these trends
