30 Top Marketing Thinkers Will Dissect Marketing Relevance At The 2022 Nedbank IMC

30 Top Marketing Thinkers Will Dissect Marketing Relevance At The 2022 Nedbank IMC
Dale Hefer, CEO of the Nedbank IMC.

The Nedbank Integrated Marketing Conference (IMC) 2022 is bringing the power of the collective to over a thousand delegates. Thirty thought leaders (eight of whom are international) will appear over the course of one day at this year’s virtual event on 29 July.

To a marketer, entrepreneur or creative, the question of customer relevance is growing in importance and complexity. The always-on, distraction-hungry and algorithm-driven marketplace, from which customer data has never been easier to access, can overwhelm rather than enlighten. At this year’s Nedbank IMC, a host of inspiring African and international speakers will provide insights, stories and strategies to help us hit that sweet spot of customer relevance.

Dale Hefer, CEO of the Nedbank IMC, said the power of the conference is in being able to gather so many of Africa’s advertising and marketing thought leaders together in one virtual place, on one day. ‘From powerful brands to agile independents, we have a strong selection of the best of the best providing leading thinking on what it takes for today’s marketing to be relevant. Most talks are short and sharp at 15 minutes, in a TED Talk-style format,’ said Hefer. Over a thousand delegates have already registered.

The host, Gugulethu Mfuphi, will be joined by Xolisa Dyeshana, Group Creative Director at Joe Public, and Preetesh Sewraj, CEO of The Loeries. Together they will introduce the Nedbank IMC 2022 line-up, which includes:
