"Digital Advertising Delivered: Transactional, Transparent, Transformative"



In our first Education Summit of 2018, the FCS will focus on the upheaval in Digital Advertising.  As the supply chain has been disrupted -- by the transformative power of technology and by its abuse, marketers must embrace a new vigilance in managing their digital advertising spend.

Metrics are being re-evaluated, partner relationships are being scrutinized in new light, and the whole online ecosystem is being approached more skeptically.  But as marketers, we can't turn away from the rewards of creating, executing and measuring an effective campaign.

This half-day FCS Executive Education Summit will give our audience the opportunity to hear from leading resource partners on the strategies and solutions that marketers should pursue.  And we'll talk with clientside financial marketers who are making these decisions every day.

Some of the topics to be shared and questions to be raised include:


  • What financial marketers need to know today about the digital advertising ecosystem


Data and analytics are driving media decisions even more so than straight cost efficiency.  These are the questions that financial marketers need to learn from:

  • What are best practices in tracking spend data and improving accuracy of data collection?
  • How are companies using data to map the consumer engagement landscape?
  • How can attribution be honed?
  • How can data be used to optimize real-time precision marketing?
  • Can location intelligence drive growth and sales?


Reliability and quality of data have challenged the relationships between media companies and agencies, as well as with their clients.  Here’s what’s on everyone’s mind:

  • How can clients truly trust the media partners’ disclosure of data?
  • Have can transparency data analytics be applied to improve compliance monitoring?
  • Does programmatic efficiency equal the loss of context, relevance, and personalization?
  • How can a brand inject more accountability and control into advertising supply chain?
  • What role can people-based marketing technology help solve the industry’s current issues with programmatic?


  • How do you balance opportunities against the risk of overreacting – or overreaching?
  • How do you ensure that your policies are in effect … and effective?

Additional panelists will be announced.  The final agenda will posted by March 15.
