‘The Driving Forces of Change’ at The Innovation Roundtable
Mar 28 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 

Tonight’s Innovation Roundtable welcomes Jason Newport. Jason is a youth, mobile, and digital marketing expert who has spent more than 15 years providing counsel to dozens of global brand clients and their media, advertising, PR, and shopper marketing agencies.  In 2013, Jason was named to Business Insider’s list of the “30 Most Creative People in Mobile Advertising” for his standout work as SVP, Mobility & Innovation with Dentsu-Aegis Network — among the six largest holding companies of agencies in the world. 
This evening’s session will focus on the driving forces of change that have disrupted and displaced the foundations of every industry, and what makers, marketers, and innovators must begin doing to ensure they not only survive, but thrive in the years to come as the rate of change accelerates and massive shifts in consumer demand patterns require us all to adapt as we move from an attention economy, to an intention economy with consumers continuing to outpace brands, consultancies and agencies — adopting technology at breakneck pace.  

Join us as Jason shares how we can all begin to make market sense out of market noise, and learn to distill and extract value from the endless flow of information and data bombarding each of us daily.

Tickets start at $100, and all proceeds benefit the health, education and human service programs Family Centers offers to more than 23,000 children, families and individuals across lower Fairfield County.  Several exciting sponsorship opportunities are also available.
