Lunch & Learn The Relationship Era
Today’s brands face an apparent choice between two evils: Continue betting on their increasingly ineffective advertising or put blind faith in the supposedly mystical power of social media, where “likes” stand in for transactions and a mass audience is maddeningly elusive. But that's not the choice at all. Bob Garfield, well known ad critic and co-host of NPR's On The Media, will discuss the “Relationship Era,” where the only path for
businesses seeking long-term success is to create authentic customer relationships.
