A first of its kind virtual
marketing conference. 24 July.

Our theme of marketing works, work it, is more relevant than ever before.  Marketing still works and is needed more than ever before.  Our line-up of world class speakers will be sharing new insights gained from navigating the unchartered Corona landscape.

In March 2019 we got everyone hot and bothered by stripping down at our sold out Marketing Gets Naked™ conference. Now, we’re going to get sweaty by working out what it takes to develop marketing that turns up, clocks in, and gets the job done.

Sticking to our 15 minute ‘Ted Ex’ format, 20 industry experts will be working hard to share what works.  And what doesn’t.



16 Speakers.  One Day.  Ted Talk Format.

We are still working on our world class line-up of 20 speakers. We are proud to welcome the following speakers so far.
