From marketing technology to meaningful technology

Marketing technology has an extreme potential to make a meaningful impact. Why? Because it can automate data & content at scale. Unfortunately, too often it is mis-used to focus on short-term business objectives, and we consider privacy & other regulations as blocking points for a quick scale-up.


But if we want to make a shift to meaningful technology, we will have to flip the way we look at it: Don’t begin with platform & features, but start with your stakeholders, see what they need and figure out how technology can support this.


In this sessions we will see that meaningful technology benefits your customers, society and also your business.
