BOT BOOM: WHAT MARKETERS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHATBOTS NOW

Chatter about chatbots reached a fever pitch in 2016, with brands including Sephora, Taco Bell, and KLM jumping on the bot bandwagon. This presentation is designed for marketers and entertainment brands who are struggling to understand how to use bots for their business, highlighting what they are, why they’ve become so popular, and how to leverage them for customer service, content delivery, e-commerce, promotions, and branding. It also highlights a case study of TIFFBOT, a movie-loving chatbot built in partnership with the Toronto International Film Festival, offering takeaways for marketers based on its success.

LEARNING SESSION: GREG MURRAY OF PFIZER CANADA
THE CAUSE OF CREATORSHIP: WHY THE WORLD NEEDS EVERYDAY CREATORS, AND WHY YOU ALREADY ARE ONE

Picasso once said, “All children are born artists, the challenge being remaining one as you grow up.” It was true in the 20th century, and it’s even truer now. With only 25% of humans identifying themselves as being Creative, we are living in a world of people neglecting the greatest gift given to our species: the capacity to imagine and create. In this talk, Greg will give context on why this matters, how we have gotten here, and introduce the idea of becoming an Everyday Creative. Everyday Creatives turn themselves toward creation and use it to better their life and their business. Ultimately, we are all creators
