"The Voice Revolution: The Next Wave of Opportunity"



FCS Charlotte tackles "The Voice Revolution" in this month's luncheon featuring a great line-up of speakers.  We'll talk about the next wave of opportunity created by audio marketing, empowered by AI technology, and embraced by consumers more and more each day.

From how to best harness search to how to navigate the complexity of AI to how to effectively incorporate privacy policies, our panel will lead a discussion that financial marketers need to hear.

We'll open the lunch with a research overview featuring the latest insights from Kantar and Foresight Factory.  Then we'll turn to our panel for their thoughts on audio/voice, search, and even compliance

Join us for another distinctive FCS event in the wonderful  Foundation for the Carolinas.  Seating is strictly limited, and a sell-out is expected.  Please reserve your table/ticket without delay.
