This research highlights the views of marketing and communications executives globally. Topics include: evolving customer attitudes, preferences, and behaviors; customer interaction with brands (channels, customer loyalty, customer data management); customer-focused innovation (customer preference changes regarding new products/services, sources of innovation); using new technology for marketing (AI, voice technology, blockchain); and desired skills in future marketing talent.
