Vote for Brands

Overview: In a year of global elections where more than 4 billion will be heard at the ballot box in more than 70 countries.  The outcomes will be varied but one trend is clear: citizens place less trust in governments than brands. This trust vacuum presents an opportunity for brands to shine where parties and politicians fall short by addressing the macro ESG context and micro context of people.  On stage, we will discuss how different brands are navigating this vacuum and meeting citizens where they are.

Panel composition:
Moderators: Clifford Young (President, US Public Affairs, Ipsos), Emmanuel Probst (Global Lead, Brand Thought-Leadership, Ipsos)  
Participants: Samantha Moore (Director, Market Research, Microsoft), Elise James DeCruise (Chief Equity Officer, Ad Council), Myralda Derks (Chief Customer & Business Intelligence Officer. L’Oréal), Rob Gaige (Head of Global Insights, Reddit), Kashir Sing (Strategy & Insights Marketing Manager. AB inBev)
