Digital marketing leaders Jeff Einstein and Econsultancy’s Stefan Tornquist will be presenting the two plenary keynotes at Econsultancy’s Peer Summit October 6 at the Metropolitan Club in Chicago.

Einstein, Parter at the Brothers Einstein, will be presenting Brand Reach: the Demise and Resurrection of Common Sense. The presentation will delve into how the appropriate response to the erosion of big brand reach in the early 21st century is less, not more, technology, and more, not less, common sense. Einstein’s keynote presentation takes us on a compelling journey through advertising history and terminates with the introduction of a new and exciting model predicated on common sense and designed explicitly to resurrect and restore big brand reach for big brand advertisers.

Tornquist, VP of Research-US at Econsultancy, will discuss Research in Practice. In this session, Stefan will survey some of the key findings from Econsultancy's most recent research, looking at what our findings might actually mean for marketers planning for 2012. You will hear the latest on the burgeoning opportunities in digital branding, automation in marketing, how search is evolving and the push toward attribution.

Both keynotes are part of Econsultancy’s Peer Summit, a day-long roundtable event for senior, client side marketers. Details on roundtables, moderators, agends, etc. are available online at:
