Sales & Marketing Summit to Focus on Innovation
Consumer Goods Technology is excited to announce that this year's Consumer Goods Sales & Marketing Summit will feature Duncan Wardle, former vice president of innovation and creativity at The Walt Disney Company.
Working across multiple sessions at the event, Wardle will present a set of easy-to-use tools that consumer goods executives can use to drive innovation in their own roles and across their organizations. Now chief innovation officer at Id8&innov8, Wardle will guide attendees through a unique innovation process that's fun to do, easy to learn and practical to apply.
At CGSM, CG executives will come together to share ideas and learn about key industry trends, including strategies for rethinking the organization and making more impactful consumer connections. This annual conference is committed to providing a single forum for thought leadership that lets consumer goods executives share ideas and experiences, learn about important industry trends and network with their peers. CGSM will be held June 18-20, 2018, at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.
“What if everyone had an innovation toolkit that normal people could use?” asks Wardle. “A series of tangible creative behavior and innovation tools they could actually use to problem solve creatively?”
“They can. This workshop guides participants through a unique innovation process that's fun to do, easy to learn and practical to apply. It’s real-world, and it works,” adds Albert Guffanti, CGT's brand director. “But Duncan, with his Imagination Emporium Workshop, is just the start.
The entire CGSM event is designed to give attendees practical tools and understanding focused on the realities of what's happening today with consumers and how product manufacturers must respond.
