Deanie Elsner, Marketing Speaker: Speech Excerpt


Admired CMO, Deanie Elsner makes the case that the marketing models her generation grew up with are on their way out. She explains why consumers are the new CEOs, logistics operators, and sales force, and how companies can leverage this power shift to ensure they don't become obsolete.

Despite changing times, she insists that the "Four P's" that make up the foundation of marketing are still the same. "What has changed profoundly is there's a whole new set of inputs that go through that filter," Deanie points out. If marketers can master the skills to deal with these new inputs, she claims they will have higher ROI than ever before.
