This 7-10 June, our virtual event will offer some much needed perspective on what the future holds for you, your team and your brand. Expect answers to the big questions about the future of your brand, your job and the way you work. Each day of June's Festival focuses on a different topic...

Day 1:​ 

DX Summit (1-5pm)

In partnership with the Festival of Marketing, Cognizant Digital Experience and Zone invite you to the DX Summit to explore how and why businesses need to change to meet increasing expectations from their customers, and their employees.

Day 2:​ 

Future proofing your brand

There is no shortage of predictions of seismic change in marketing, but what will change and how do marketers need to prepare and adapt to thrive?  Discover what the future holds and how to prepare for it.  

Day 3: 

Innovation

When should brands innovate? How should they approach decision making? And how do they determine potential success? Discover the process, mindset, checks and balances that can lead to successful innovation.

Day 4:​ 

Work and working

Has the pandemic hastened the need for marketers to have new capabilities, or highlighted the need for marketing fundamentals? Discover the structure, skills and mindset marketers and their teams must possess to prosper.
