CMO Council has announced its partnership with Africa’s foremost integrated marketing conference, the Nedbank IMC Conference. The Integrated Marketing Council (IMC) believes that Marketing is Business© and that marketing deserves its place at the boardroom table. This conference has more CMOs, senior marketers and agency leaders attending than any other in Africa.
The one-day immersive event on September 15, 2023, comprises a day of 15-minute powerful presentations and is known for its hard-hitting global agenda with no sales pitches. The 2023 theme is ‘Marketing. UpClose&Personal’ and is relevant to anyone in the business of communication.
The CMO Council will get up close and personal with delegates at the Nedbank IMC as CMO Council European Head, Ricardo Oberlander, shares a virtual talk on the role of the Council. Oberlander himself has held a range of senior marketing and regional leadership positions in his career, as well as overseeing the deployment of innovative processes and products.
CMO Council founder and CEO, Donovan Neale May, says that the Council is eager to promote the Nedbank IMC given the alignment of both organisations. “The CMO Council seeks to share, extend and build upon marketing’s intellectual capital. The Nedbank IMC’s keen interest in articulating and scrutinising the role of marketing in shaping markets slots nicely into this.”
Dale Hefer, CEO of the IMC says that the CMO Council partnership marks the coming of age for the Nedbank IMC. “Our intention from the start with the IMC has been to drive the idea that marketing is a boardroom-worthy discipline, and to clearly position marketing as business. The CMO Council’s willingness to partner with us signifies that we are meeting our mark.”
Nedbank IMC is also in a partnership with The Effie Awards South Africa – the world’s preeminent marketing effectiveness award, at the Nedbank IMC Conference which will be in person or online on the September 15, 2023.
