Nancy Rademaker — The X Factor of Customer Centricity: Why Customer Centricity is the New Digital Imperative
EMEA: 10:15am – 11:00am GMT
North America: 12:15pm – 1:00pm ET
Over the past decades, the focus on “experience” has grown dramatically. When considering products and services, emotions increasingly are the leading factor. Organizations have come to realize that, in an age where everything is available to everyone, customer-centricity is key and experience has become the X factor.
This keynote speech takes the audience on a journey of human change, the effect on organizations, and how customer-centricity and focusing on Customer Experience (CX) is essential to acquire and retain customers.
This strategy has technology as its core, with artificially intelligent algorithms and new interfaces to satisfy the needs of the New Customer, especially in these times of accelerated change, with the world massively shifting online.
Scott Brinker — Martech and Web Experiences of the (Very Near) Future
EMEA: 11:00am – 11:40am GMT
North America: 1:00pm – 1:40pm ET
For all the challenges of 2020, this year has accelerated “digital transformation” in all of its guises. New technology innovations in marketing and customer experience are progressing rapidly. With that, customer expectations are rising too.
In this keynote presentation, martech pioneer Scott Brinker will discuss three major trends in marketing technology that are already impacting web experiences today — but are poised to grow dramatically over the next several years:
- The advancement and proliferation of “no-code” tools.
- The growth of platforms, networks, and marketplaces in the ecosystem economy.
- The advancement from “big data” to “big ops” — activating data in customer experience.
Scott will provide both frameworks and concrete examples for each of these in the (very near) future of web experience. He’ll then close with a look at how the “partnership” between humans and machines will shape how we approach these opportunities.
Dr. Safiya Noble — Algorithms of Oppression: Do Search Engines Reinforce Racism?
EMEA: 11:40am – 12:25pm GMT
North America: 1:40pm – 2:25pm ET
The landscape of information is rapidly shifting as new demands are increasing investment in digital technologies.
Yet, critical scholars continue to demonstrate how many technologies are shaped by and infused with values that are not impartial, disembodied, or lacking positionality.
Technologies hold racial, gender, and class politics. In this talk, Dr. Safiya Noble will discuss her recent book, Algorithms of Oppression, and the impact of technology on the public.
Ben Legg — Why Digital Marketing Should Matter More Than Ever to the C-Suite
EMEA: 12:40pm – 1:20pm GMT
North America: 2:40pm – 3:20pm ET
Marketing should be a powerful growth engine in any business. But what does it mean to be an effective marketing leader in the new digital-first world? What does the CEO really want from marketing, and what should marketing leaders focus on to drive success?
Marketers are under a lot of pressure to deliver results, but which are the most important success metrics, and what does it really mean to be ‘commercial’?
All organizations need to embrace new technology, so what role should the marketing leader play in adopting and driving change?
Does the C-Suite really understand digital marketing, and how should marketing leaders help them understand the challenges, risks, and opportunities? With so many tools and new technologies available, how do marketers know where to start and where to prioritize?
Ben Legg is the author of ‘Marketing for CEOs; Death and glory in the digital age’ and was formerly the COO of Google Europe, amongst many other illustrious roles.

SEO is a vital channel for all marketers, yet it is still poorly understood and many companies take a piecemeal approach.
