The brilliant team at SMW have created a conference experience that is innovative and relevant for marketers across categories. As both a speaker and attendee, I have been impressed with the high caliber of content, professional team, and exciting list of participants.

2021 Global ThemeREINVENTION

Rebuilding The Systems of Social Media Marketing For A Better Future

SMW 2021 Global Theme


Based on Rishad Tobaccowala's The ABCDE of Marketing Re-Invented framework


Who we are marketing to, how do we find them and how has their mindset shifted? How can we think about people and not consumers?


Brands continue to be important but the way they are built is changing greatly and our relationship to them is complicated. How should experience and purpose play into brand strategy?


Has always been a key to marketing but there is much more of it, there are new ways to make it, faster and cheaper, so how do we cut through the noise?


Data is key to the future of marketing, but very few companies will find a competitive edge in how they use it. How do we focus on quality v.s. quantity?


A progressive company is one where information and decision making is transparent, and leaders are accountable.

As a speaker at Special Media Week 2020 and someone in the first class of shows for SMW+, I can say I haven't worked with a better conference team. They have the perfect balance of hustle and flexibility that is vital to producing events in this ever-changing landscape.

Social Media Week sets the agenda when it comes to trends and best practices in social media marketing. I've had the pleasure of speaking numerous times and the audience engagement and quality of conversations have always been extremely high. Under Adweek ownership, I am especially excited to see how they continue to serve the broader marketing eco-system in the future.
