Johnson & Johnson Pacific MD Phil Lynch, Kimberly-Clark Australia and NZ CEO/MD Robert Rietbroek and Coles MD Ian McLeod, will be among the speakers at Nielsen’s annual thought leadership and industry event.
Nielsen’s NZ Managing Director, Rob Clark, said he was thrilled with the speaker line-up and believed these industry leaders would generate invaluable insights, aligned with the conference theme. “Consumers are changing, we consume media in evolving ways and the way we buy and what we buy are also changing,” Clark said.
“In addition, the business of consumer insights is facing a paradigm shift due to new technology and media fragmentation. Australian and NZ leaders are uniting at Consumer 360 to debate and discuss where it’s all headed.”
