    Powerful tools for better marketing mean that big data is only human ? these are the insights from Bryan Melmed, Director of Exponential in New York. He will elaborate on why marketers need to stop racing towards what big data has promised and focus on what it can actually deliver.

    Another speaker on the bill is Lynne Gordon, Managing Director of Added Value, who will be sharing her wealth of knowledge on how brands can stand out from a cluttered brand landscape and explain how brands can connect with the fabric culture of their consumers.

    The dual keynote presentation will be delivered by Yegs Ramiah, Marketing Head of Sanlam and Santam and Founding Creative Partner, Alistair King, to unpack how she has trusted a single cross-platform agency group to deliver great work.

Having worked on brands such as Castle Lager, M-Net and Edgars - he is a respected marketer with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the telecommunication space.

Paula Raubenheimer, Managing Director of SouthernX will explain how brands can make informed decisions to execute an effective strategy.

    Melissa Attree, Director of Content Strategy at Ogilvy & Mather will reveal how effective content strategies can be used in an omni-channel world to strengthen customer engagement.

    To conclude the conference, Adam Weber, Executive Creative Director at Joe Public will unpack the importance of creative execution for any campaign.
