Presentation Descriptions


Don't Kick Your Customer in the Face: Hostility and Sincerity on the Open Web with Zach Phillips, Director, the Kitchen

This is why we can't have nice things.

Let's talk about ads and ad-blocking, spying and behavior-tracking, spam, and things that are "free." Let's discuss whether or not our users and customers are still people, or are simply livestock with eyeballs. Let's talk about explicit and implicit agreements. Let's talk about being honest with ourselves, why our standards should be higher, and why so many people pass over the word "Viable" in Minimum Viable Product.

Let's talk about the greatest new companies and services on the web, what they're doing right, and whether or not you can assign a metric to that.

May not be suitable for children or people who get sad when they hear bad words.


The strength of non-digital in a digital world with Nick Matarese, President and Creative Director, The Barn Creative

In a world full of digital marketing, Nick Matarese of The Barn talks about the when, how and why of non-digital pieces strengthening your message & brand more than ever.


The Power of Color with Pauline Rubin, Cofounder, First Ascent Design

Color can make or break your brand, but with so many colors to choose from, how do you choose the right ones? We'll discuss how to make better color choices by analyzing your target audience. We will also examine the principles of color theory to better understand how colors interact with each other and how that relates to design and branding.


Brand Building and a Social Media Roadmap with Emma Cowdery, Marketing Director, Global Delaware & Carroll Ivy Laurence, Co-owner and Founder, Social Stylate

Building a brand from scratch and sharing it with the world starts with a comprehensive vision and a commitment to evolve. To continue to connect and develop an audience, you have to learn to develop fresh and compelling content to share on a creative mix of social media platforms.


Social Media Marketing Trends To Watch For In 2016 with Justin Silva, Social Marketing Director, The Archer Group

Ever wonder how changing guidelines and trends will affect your Social Media marketing success in 2016? In this presentation, Archer’s Social Marketing Director, Justin Silva, will discuss some of the newest ways brands are using Social Media to connect with their audiences, and why Social Media will continue to be as critical as ever to building brands online (and off).


Stop Wasting Over Half Of Your Digital Ad Spend with David Clunes and Richard Rood, The Encima Group

Recent research indicates that 54% of all digital display (banner) ads served on publisher sites were never visible to a site visitor. Yet, since impressions were served, publishers expect to be paid. Translation, over half of your digital ad spend is wasted.

By attending this session audience members will learn about the term “viewability,” understand why it’s important and discover how Encima helped one client recover over $6 million in wasted ad spend while decreasing cost per website engagement by 42%.


Harness the Power of Google Tag Manager with Anthony Biondo, Founder and CEO, Biondo Creative

Eliminate the need to hard code tags throughout your site and improve the ROI of your digital marketing efforts. Harness the power of Google Tag Manager and up your marketing game. Google Tag Manager is a free tag management platform that allows you to centrally manage and inject tags across your site using triggers to improve web analytics, conversion tracking, remarketing and more.
