Session 3

The Revolution and Evolution of Marketing

This session is co-sponsored by 


At Moxie, we’ve noticed a sea change starting to occur at scale relative to how companies approach branding, advertising, and understand audiences. This eagle-eye view stems from our work with top clients such as Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, eBay, Porsche, Verizon, Walmart, and Wells Fargo. Because mass media and entertainment consumption have changed, consumers no longer gather in one central watering hole—mainstream is the new minority. And because of this change, traditional audience segments (e.g., Millennials, moms, etc.) are no longer relevant. Instead, we’re seeing a rise of Tribes: tightly connected groups centered around common interests on collective shared spaces such as Reddit, Snapchat, Tinder, Imgur, Spotify, etc. Join us on February 22 to learn how marketing is being revolutionized, how brands are competing in this new landscape, and how to enter the job market during this transformation.

Speaker: Stephanie Wierwille (AD alum ’11)
