SOLD OUT: Cheryl Guerin, Global Brand Strategy & Innovation, Mastercard


Mastercard‘s Cheryl Guerin was the featured guest speaker at another sold-out FCS Cocktails with Content reception on June 14th. She joined us at the New York Yacht Club, where she sat for a one-on-one conversation with Storyful CEO Maria Pacheco. Maria teed up Cheryl’s revealing answers with relevant questions that touched on subjects on everyone’s mind. Cheryl, EVP, Global Brand Strategy & Innovation at Mastercard, was very forthcoming with her candid insights on a wide range of topics, including experiential marketing, performance marketing, product rollouts and pitfalls, the importance of brand, and, of course, AI.

Here are video clips of Cheryl’s comments about Brand Strength and Experiential Marketing.

Our thanks to Storyful, who served as the event’s exclusive programming partner and created the opportunity for the FCS. We’re especially grateful to Cheryl for returning to the FCS NY stage — she was one of our panelists on March 10, 2020, which proved to be the last FCS NY event prior to the pandemic shutdown.
