Each year, Experian Marketing Services hosts a summit event for our clients that aims to educate, delight and inspire them. This year was no different, with a host of breakout sessions, networking events and inspiring keynote presentations that not only covered the latest trends and technology in the marketing world, but also the importance of creativity, passion and perseverance in the workplace.
This message was made most clear by Erik Wahl, the opening keynote speaker who wowed the audience with his artistry and creative mind. He opened the presentation by asking, “Who here can draw?” Only a few audience members raised their hand. “If I were to go down to your preschools, and ask the same question, what is the response I’d get?” he continued. “One hundred percent. Kids are dying to share with me their artistic mind. At what age, do you think, does our creative energy start to dry out?”
The rest of the presentation aims to help each marketer rekindle that creative passion. Through audience participation, incredible live painting and amazing stories of artistry and passion, Wahl’s keynote stands out as a highlight of the conference.
