In this Session: 

Many of us get frustrated and beat up by silos and office politics that gets in the way of getting work done. If you’re in-house, you’ve probably experienced it when you challenge the status quo. If you’re agency-side, you’ve likely spent countless hours developing impactful recommendations, only to see them fail to get past a development queue or senior leadership.

In this presentation, we’ll show how to overcome those roadblocks by breaking down silos and using business intelligence tools attached to big data to show clients new possibilities effectively, resulting in increased buy in and faster results.
