POI Global Summit is Set for Brussels, Belgium
Could a CPG Marketer be Twitters Next CMO?
If you’ve viewed one POI agenda/attended or attended each one to date, you’ll agree that each POI Summit is unique unto itself. Not as a disconnected set of events, but as a progression, advancement, and demonstration of continuous improvement. You’ll find it in our mission, our CPG/Retailer presenters’ credo, and you’ll leave each POI Summit with increased skills, insights, and relationships. I am inspired to write this column as we begin to finalize the sessions, and subject matter expert presenters that I know will meet your growing price/promotion optimization needs. Presenters from Kimberly-Clark, 7-Eleven, Grainger, Del Monte, Accenture, Tyson, Sunny Delight, Sereneti Kitchen, Bic Consumer Products, Strategy&, Mars, PepsiCo,and others will share their learning’s and successes with you in a deep and meaningful way.
Many of you read POI Pulse weekly and gain an insight, or are currently pioneering efforts at your company to drive mutual growth, and you recognize that our commitment to the discipline of Trade Marketing, Pricing, Merchandising, Branding, Retail Execution, and Advanced Analytics continuously creates the path forward. Stay tuned for perhaps the biggest announcement next week, since the inaugural POI Summit!
I also want to take this opportunity after the long weekend, and heading into the Fall to thank every POI Member who’s responded to my requests, and have helped our peers work through an area of Collaborative Marketing in a selfless and collaborative manner! At the POI Summit, you’ll get to know these individuals, not through awards, nor press, but through their dedication to excellence, and their attention to detail in process, people/ skills, and enabling technology.
The upcoming POI Fall Summit will demonstrate lessons learned, and present innovative ways that CPG Manufacturers are meeting growth challenges head on. From local to global, and Hi Lo to EDLP, the POI November Summit will once again raise the bar on the utilization and profit from improving processes, skills, and leveraging advanced analytics to drive greater ROI in a tough environment. If you received your invitation, but lost your promotion code reach me at email@example.com. We are trending towards capacity in Dallas (as we did in Chicago), so please register now to attend with your team!
Have an outstanding week, and Labor Day Holiday!
