Technology continues to disrupt, enable and challenge the world of marketing. Join Scott Brinker, founder of the influential blog Chief Martech, as we discuss the future of marketing technology. When—if ever—will its growth plateau? How can companies prepare for the changes to come? Do you have to be a technologist to be a successful marketer today? Scott’s answers will surprise you.
- This rate of change for marketing and technology is creating this Meta challenge for marketing to keep up with it, and that offers us opportunity and potential risk as marketing professionals.
- The list of technologies is actually richer than we thought.
- All kinds of skills are needed to be successful in serving customers, so you don’t need to abandon marketing if you aren’t interested in technology. We need to look at technology as an enabler of creativity.
