RECAP: BRANDS FOR HUMANS (B4H) SUMMIT

Insight from Growth Council CMOs during the first-ever B4H Summit on April 28, 2021

Defining marketing today as B2C or B2B or “business TO anything" falls short of delivering the stakeholder value required to drive modern corporations forward. As the head of their organization's marketing function, CMOs must relentlessly focus on human centricity -- solving real human problems and needs in creative and innovative ways that develop deeper connections with all of the stakeholders that their their organizations serve. To carve a new path forward, the B4H Summit re-calibrated the foundational tenets of brand building -- creative ideas informed by rich human insights that direct the brand experience throughout all touchpoints in the enterprise. This is the B4H (Brands 4 Humans) revolution.

The loss of your ability to identify your customers and consumers cross platforms.

Third-party cookies provide marketers with identity and sensing (or “signals”) across the open ad ecosystem. They identify who the audience is as they browse, and what and where they are browsing. This sensing information then goes back into the data aggregators and/or social media platforms, which is used to build audiences and targets.
