Upskilling Your Marketing Staff for Digital Age

With growth of digital as a marketing communications channel, more and more traditional marketers are now talking about “integration”. A channel which they once ignored as a fad, has now become a necessity for them to integrate with.

This is the theme for Digital Marketing Summit 2016 which happens in exactly one week’s time! This year’s Ctheme is “Integrating Traditional Marketing with Digital”.

Along this theme, my topic for the summit is “Bridging the Digital Knowledge Gap. How to Train Your Marketing Staff for Digital”.
