Modern marketing and why it’s a matter of trust: CMO50 2022 series - Episode 3

Loading the player ...

In the third and final episode of our 3-part CMO50 video series exploring modern marketing and why it’s become a matter of trust, we’re delighted to be joined by Telstra’s former CMO and now digital services and sales executive, Jeremy Nicholas, and Adobe VP Marketing Asia-Pacific and Japan, Duncan Egan.

During this lively discussion, the pair delve into the macro forces that have led to a new-found focus on consumer trust, explore the persistent gap between what consumers expect and brands are delivering today, and share how they’re seeing data used to foster a trust-based relationship in the modern age.

The 3-part CMO50 video series brings together thought leaders from our CMO50 alumni as well as sponsor, Adobe, to look at what makes up the foundations of trust in a digital-first business and marketing approach and how responsible use of data has become the admission ticket for establishing strong digital relationships. We also explore ways marketing leaders are building trust into every program and experience through personalisation, creative content and consumer choice.

Marketing prowess versus the enigma of the metaverse

Flash back to the classic film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Television-obsessed Mike insists on becoming the first person to be ‘sent by Wonkavision’, dematerialising on one end, pixel by pixel, and materialising in another space. His cinematic dreams are realised thanks to rash decisions as he is shrunken down to fit the digital universe, followed by a trip to the taffy puller to return to normal size.

More than money talks in sports sponsorship

As a nation united by sport, brands are beginning to learn money alone won’t talk without aligned values and action. If recent events with major leagues and their players have shown us anything, it’s the next generation of athletes are standing by what they believe in – and they won’t let their values be superseded by money.
