AMA Virtual Conference: The Year Ahead

2020 will bring an abundance of changes. The AMA’s line-up of keynote speakers will teach you how to be a catalyst for change, internally and inter-personally; get you caught up with what the 2020 election means for marketers, and introduce you to new trends and re-imagined frameworks for your operations.

Ipsos’ Oscar Yuan and Clifford Young are among the seasoned keynote presenters. Don’t miss hearing about How Companies Should Navigate the Political Landscape in This Election Year.

Whether it’s Nike and Colin Kaepernick, the Equinox/SoulCycle boycott, or the decision by some retailers to stop carrying guns, the injection of some of politics’ topics du jour into the business and marketing world seems almost inevitable, especially in this election year. While some companies intentionally take a stand as part of their brand purpose or as an expression of their values, others are unwittingly dragged into the conversation. In either case, are there any strategic guidelines to follow? What SHOULD companies do? What do they need to watch out for?
