Will Cady

The team at Social Media Week are not only great collaborators to work with, they have a deep commitment to the evolution of Marketing & Social Media that continues to be a source of inspiration for me and my team. Having spoken at various Social Media Week conferences and joined for some digital programming on SMW+, I give my highest recommendation to Social Media Week as an education resource, networking hub, and industry mobilizer.

2021 Global ThemeREINVENTION

Reimagining Social Media Marketing
for a Better Tomorrow


SMW 2021 Global Theme


Based on Rishad Tobaccowala's The ABCDE of Marketing Re-Invented framework



Who we are marketing to, how do we find them and how has their mindset shifted? How can we think about people and not consumers?


Brands continue to be important but the way they are built is changing greatly and our relationship to them is complicated. How should experience and purpose play into brand strategy?


Has always been a key to marketing but there is much more of it, there are new ways to make it, faster and cheaper, so how do we cut through the noise?


Data is key to the future of marketing, but very few companies will find a competitive edge in how they use it. How do we focus on quality v.s. quantity?


A progressive company is one where information and decision making is transparent, and leaders are accountable.
