ARF Industry Leader Forum 2013

Stay tuned for details about ARF Industry Leader Forum 2014, on October 30!

Here's what happened at our 2013 event.

With so much spirited debate and discussion on marketing mix modeling, we wanted to share a few key takeaways from our speakers on the subject:

"We shouldn't rewrite the past—[the] marketing mix model is the best validated system. Let's not try to tear down competing models, but let's talk about tying together the best solutions to solve problems."
Neil Canter, President, Global Analytic Consulting, Nielsen

"Mix modeling can't rule, it needs to be taken in context and balanced. Does it make sense? Does it match your intuition? If not, we encourage people to ignore the results."
Charles McLeish, Sr. Director, Marketing Planning & Services, Lego

"I have seen the changes in the modeling industry, and much of the conversations that we’ve seen involve modeling as a change agent. If you want to truly understand something, you have to change it."
Pathikrit SenGupta, SVP, Analytics, Hill Holliday

"You can take a problem, solve it in a multitude of ways and come up with the same answer. This holds true for our industry as well—we tailor our solutions to meet business needs that are impactful."
Nancy Smith, President & CEO, Analytic Partners

"Models don’t make decisions, people do."
John Walthour, Director, Global Consumer Insights, General Mills
