Survival of the Fleetest: Anticipate. Adapt. Act.

In today’s changing business climate, simply keeping up means falling behind. We’re all in the same place: winning business from, and competing against, companies that previously were not on our radar. At the Spring Conference, you’ll hear from a diverse group of leaders in communications, consulting, advertising, marketing, interactive and more. Their insights are what you need to get ahead of the curve and learn how to identify tomorrow’s clients.

Featured Speakers:

Peter Blackshaw, chief marketing officer for Nielsen BuzzMetrics and co-founder of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association
A former interactive marketer for Proctor & Gamble, Blackshaw is also the founder of and author of the blog. His book, “Satisfied Customers Tell Three Friends, Angry Customers Tell 3,000,” is due for publication by Random House in Summer 2008. Blackshaw will demonstrate how the public relations profession is uniquely positioned to leverage six key drivers of brand credibility to forge a significantly stronger consumer relationship.

Peter Krivkovich, president and chief executive officer of Cramer-Krasselt, the third largest independent advertising agency in the U.S., and its integrated public relations arm, CKPR, one of the nation’s largest independent public relations firms
