“It’s been kind of mind-blowing! I’ve met a lot of really smart people with really big ideas. And it creates the opportunity to connect with folks in a way for relationships to be established going forward.”

— Steve Sommers, VP Global Brand Marketing, Under Armour

“Right now, technology has created a scary, complex and at times overwhelming space for marketers. They know they can no longer rely on their agency; I’d go so far as to say it’s almost irresponsible marketing to assume they will get it. However, you’ve got to break through. What a tremendous opportunity to come together in this spirit of trust and bonding at a Brand Innovators event to learn about new tools to help tell your story. It’s pretty unique in the marketplace.”

— Mike Donnelly, SVP, Group Head Global Digital Marketing, MasterCard

“I have really valued the Brand Innovators experience. There are a lot of other brands represented — colleagues you can learn from, share best practices with just network with to become a better marketer.”

— Cheryl Gresham, Director of Media, Taco Bell Corp.
