Conference 2022

The theme of this year’s conference  was “The power of Human Connection - getting attention by giving attention”. We live within a tsunami of non-stop advertising, where more content is published each day than there are humans alive to consume it.Therefore, human-centred marketing has become more important now than ever before. On this day, multiple companies talked about how they apply human-centred marketing in their company.

Ozcan Akyol was the chairman of the day. With his humour, knowledge and ability to ask sharp questions, he created an open and interactive discussion throughout the day. Furthermore, interesting companies came to talk; L’Oreal was the main partner and together with Steltz, Amnesty International, and Jelle Bouma they presented useful insights on this theme.
