2016 AWNY Leadership Breakfast: Position of Influence - Redefining the (Female) Leadership Experience

Leadership is evolving. What’s expected, and what’s possible are being rewritten as we speak. While many no longer see a glass ceiling, the barriers and demands that exist for women in the media, marketing and technology industries continue to change, from entry-level to the C-suite. A strong female leadership voice has never been more important than it is in today’s fast-paced, always-on, mobile-first world. Join this panel of top leaders as discuss their own path to leadership, and how today they are championing new expectations within their organizations, influencing workplace culture and ultimately the way brands connect with consumers in new and collaborative ways.

Master Class Series: Stella Artois’ Native Academy Awards Activation – Bringing Awareness to a Brand and a Cause

In a cluttered, competitive beer marketplace, Stella Artois’ goal is to deliver top-of-mind awareness with consumers.

In addition, Stella Artois knows it is important for their consumers to leave their mark on the world.  Through a partnership with Water.org, Stella Artois will enable consumers to be the first generation to end the global water crisis.

In this session, Matt Litman, Connections Manager for the High End & Craft at ABI, and Juliana Wurzburger, Senior Partner, Group Account Director at MediaCom will discuss how Stella Artois not only drove awareness of the brand, but also of the cause.

You’ll learn:

·        How Stella Artois leveraged native advertising around the Academy Awards

·        Components of the activation; from the Stella Artois chalice to the Oscars’ red carpet

·        Lessons learned and looking to the future
