The Marketing Capability Leaders Forum


About the forum

The Marketing Capability Leaders Forum is a breakfast briefing and networking session, designed to bring together likeminded leaders to evaluate industry challenges such as the digital skills gap, the war for talent and building a culture of effectiveness.

Join us at our next event, May 16th

At Econsultancy HQ, we’ll be hosting our Q2 meet-up for senior leaders in marketing and ecommerce.

You’ll hear from a panel of marketing leaders as they reveal how they have navigated transformation, placing capability at the heart of their strategies.

Please note, the forum is invite-only, so registrations are subject to approval.

Agenda for the day:

9:00 – 10:00 Breakfast & Networking

Meet and connect with likeminded industry peers.

10:00 – 10:30 Insights Session

AI Gives Marketers an Easy “B” – How Do We Get Them to an “A+”?

We’ll explore the trends in capability development needed to not only give marketers the tools to both make the most of AI, but to go beyond its limitations. Find out how the trend toward appointment learning, work-based assignments and misnamed ‘soft’ skills is helping leading organisations develop and retain their marketing talent.

10:30 – 11:30 Panel Discussion

Gain valuable insights from global leaders who have successfully navigated transformation.

Learning should be being coached on the job, in a moment, it should be learning yourself, particularly from things that you screwed up.
