Mark Ritson’s polarising views and spirited presentation style have made him infamous in the marketing world. Ritson is unapologetic in his brand-first approach to marketing and controversial perspective on channel mix, and how marketers can impact the bottom line.
Ritson will be covering the main drivers of effective marketing in a one-hour presentation at Crowne Plaza, Auckland on February 20, organised by the Commercial Communications Council in association with Bauer Media.
Says Paul Head, CEO of the Comms Council: “It’s an ambitious presentation – to cover the big lessons in marketing effectiveness in one hour, but if anyone can do it, it’s Mark Ritson.”
Ritson is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s best marketing instructors and is currently adjunct professor of marketing at the Melbourne Business School.
He has worked extensively all over the world for clients that have included PepsiCo, Subaru, Westpac, Shiseido, Flight Centre, Johnson & Johnson, Ericsson, Unilever, and KPMG.
Ritson’s weekly columns for The Australian and Marketing Week have garnered him a cult following and multiple awards.
In 2018 he was rated one of the “Power 50” most important people in media by AdNews, one of 10 top business thinkers in Australia by Smart Company, and recognised by the AMI with the Sir Charles McGrath Award, the highest honour for marketing in Australia.
Says Kaylene Hurley, commercial director, Bauer Media: “Mark’s name is synonymous with cutting-edge thinking and he isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo in the name of what’s best for the industry. There is synergy between Mark’s brand-building discourse and what we do at Bauer. We help brands be found, heard and understood.
