24-hour global conversation: part one
To mark the launch of The Marketing Society Asia, we embarked on a bold industry first - a global conversation that went 'Round the World in 24 Hours'. We crossed five continents, several time zones and cultures, as we asked the world's leading marketers one question.
Our 'Round the World' conversation started with our Chairman, Stephen Maher, chief executive, MBA in the UK and Edge Zarrella, KPMG in Hong Kong. A new conversation then started on the hour every hour, from 8am (GMT) on 18 March through to the final call at 7am (GMT) on 19 March.
The discussions were recorded, filmed and then analysed to give a truly global view of the key opportunities and challenges that marketers will be grappling with over the next decade.
Who took part
Leading marketers from Expedia, HSBC, IBM, ITV, KPMG, McLaren, Microsoft, RSA, Tiffany & Co. and many more took part in this exciting initiative.
Following the conversations we worked with WARC publishers to create this booklet. Read, enjoy and share with your colleagues.
This was our first foray into Asia - where we believe our winning formula of bringing together an exclusive network of like-minded, senior marketers to build relationships share ideas and best practice - will help The Marketing Society become the leading global network of senior marketers.
