Marketing on Purpose: What Marketing Looks Like in The Purpose-Driven Enterprise
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Consumers around the world have increased their expectations about the role corporations play in society, and they are demonstrating these expectations with their purchasing power. Social purpose is an emerging trend in business whereby companies define their reason for being in terms of the good they do for people and the planet. This process enables organizations to establish a competitive advantage and create new opportunities for maximizing profits and building shareholder value. This BCLC-commissioned study explores lessons learned from articulating and operationalizing social purpose and how those experiences impact marketing strategy and practices.

Words Matter: Here’s What the Market Actually Understands
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
We all throw around a lot of umbrella words…eco-friendly, sustainable, green…and a lot of very specific terms, like “made of renewable materials,” “carbon footprint” and “net zero.” But does anybody we’re talking to via our corporate and product marketing know what the hell we’re talking about? Often corporate America is trying to communicate one thing and the people you’re talking to understand something completely different. Suzanne Shelton, CEO of Shelton Group, will share her firms latest testing of all the words we use in the sustainability realm and reveal what resonates, what’s confusing and what you should really be talking about.
