The Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA) has announced the remaining speakers joining the line-up for its RESET conference.
Seeking to ‘disrupt’ the audience, speakers from around the globe will join the line-up to challenge what marketers are planning to do and ‘how’ they are going to do it in 2015.
“The AANA is excited to announce the final three speakers joining the RESET line-up. These are provocative thought leaders that are set to challenge marketers on the creative process, media strategy and finding brand purpose,” said AANA’s CEO, Sunita Gloster.
