Confirmed speakers

Combining success stories from the media and other sectors, the D2C Summit is a “do-not-miss” event for anyone focused on direct-to-consumer as a critical business area.

We will hear from a former Nike executive about a vertical membership programme. Google’s Chief Measurement Officer will discuss customer-centricity. We will hear from a professor in marketing at Wharton about building tight consumer relationships. There will be a session on future consumers, we will talk about the role of editorial in successful direct-to-consumer strategies, and we will address a range of pain points – and opportunities! – in the direct-to-consumer journey.
