Speaking session: Redefine your marketing with data and behavioral science

We all know that data is great at revealing ‘what’ customers did in the past. But to influence their behavior more effectively, you need to understand the truth behind ‘why’ people do what they do. Behavioral science is the key to making it happen.

Neuroscience reminds us that more than 99% of human behavior is generated by non-conscious processes in the brain, and emotions are involved in all human decisions. Traditional consumer research techniques, like focus groups, questionnaires and interviews, aren’t creating a complete picture of this reality. To truly understand your customers, new research techniques can help you reveal the crucial ‘why’ of human behavior and design new approaches to effectively influence peoples’ behavior.

Key takeaways: Attend this speaking session to learn how a new combination of data and behavioral science is helping understand and influence human decision-making in powerful ways, and thus, redefining the future of marketing.

Topic table: Navigating CPG’s perfect storm to find new growth

It’s no secret that CPG companies are facing some major headwinds in the marketplace. Finding new growth means addressing some key competitive and customer challenges.

For instance, US CPG growth rates are stalling, volumes are declining in many categories and growth has slowed dramatically in key emerging markets. At the same time, e-commerce upended shopping behavior and leveled the playing field for small companies to reach consumers quicker and easier. Buying power has largely shifted from well-understood Boomers to fickle Millennials that often shun large brands in favor of newcomers.

Key takeaways: The good news is that CPGs can survive and thrive in these conditions. Attend this topic table to learn how large CPG companies can succeed by dramatically re-thinking how they look for growth opportunities, and shifting their mindset, culture and operations to capture these opportunities.
