HOW TO START AND SCALE YOUR REVENUE MARKETING TRANSFORMATION

After her hugely successful revenue marketing transformations at Hexagon, a global leader in digital reality solutions, Ljubica has been inundated by large B2B tech companies wanting to replicate this success for their businesses! Recently, Ljubica joined Autodesk’s Construction Solutions business to build the revenue marketing engine and drive growth in APAC.

During this session Ljubica will share her best practice approach and discuss:

  • The Growth Engine Revenue Generation Value Chain™ as the foundation to setting up revenue marketing capability. This framework, together with other strategies, paved the way for consistent growth of 50%+ YOY over the past two years
  • Help you identify the drivers of revenue performance and its correlation to the four stages of marketing maturity
  • Present you with real world tools and practices you can put in place to move up the revenue marketing maturity stages of crawl, walk, run, and leap
  • Share tips on what to avoid, how to get started and scale

 

Ljubica will also share her e-book and practical advice to help you firmly establish marketing as an authority on revenue generation, securing and maintaining a respected seat at the leadership table.

MASTERING THE ART & SCIENCE OF CX: HOW B2B BRANDS WILL WIN IN THE AGE OF THE CUSTOMER

A connected customer experience looks and feels very different in 2022 than it did a decade ago, and many B2C companies are providing frictionless experiences from marketing right through to support. In comparison, the CX of most B2B organisations is stuck in 2010 (and that’s if we’re being generous).

If we’ve learned anything from the last two years, it’s that we have to make it easy for people and businesses to buy, and B2B is really lagging here — in fact, 77% of B2B buyers said their latest purchase was complex and difficult. In 2022 and beyond, companies that can deliver a consumer-like buying experience will win.

In this session, you’ll learn the building blocks for creating a customer experience that’s frictionless and connected. We’ll cover the art: your values and culture, and the science: aligning your teams, strategy, systems, and incentives. And — because CX is everybody’s business — we’ll look at it not just from the perspective of the marketing department, but across all of your go-to-market teams.

ABM - ACCOUNT BASED MARKETING

Session hosted by:
the marketing practice agency at b2b conference in sydney australia 2022

STRATEGIC ABM

Account based marketing is in high demand because of the impact it can have on revenue, relationships and reputation. If you’ve launched a successful program, you might find other parts of your business are keen to adopt your approach. Or perhaps you’re the one pushing to maximise the benefits by expanding to different regions or industry sectors. But how do you know when you’re ready to scale, and what approach to take?

In this session we’ll hear from marketing leaders at Verizon and Adobe who have successfully scaled their programs in APAC, and who will answer questions including:

  • When’s the right time to scale my ABM program?
  • What are the differences between scaling 1:1 and 1:few or 1:many ABM?
  • What governance or processes should I have in place?
  • Which teams do I need to get on board to help me scale?

Attendees will return to their desks armed with practical advice to help grow their ABM programs, without losing effectiveness in the process.

CX - CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE IN B2B

CX & CUSTOMER CENTRICITY - ALIGNMENT BETWEEN CUSTOMER VALUE AND COMMERCIAL OUTCOMES

After five years as GM Marketing at MYOB, which during her final year also included Customer Success, Natalie led a team of more than 600 across customer support, customer consultancy and services, and established the strategy for MYOB’s customer approach.

Just as MYOB’s culture finally won her over after eight years with REA Group, it was EstimateOne’s, an Australian HQ construction tendering software company’s culture and strong focus on customer centricity that again finally won her over again.

Operationally leading GTM, operations, customer care and success, marketing and sales, Natalie will share how she’s leading EstimateOne’s efforts of high grow via the critical strategical alignment between customer value and commercial outcome.

During this interactive session we’ll discuss:

  • What does Customer Centric values actually look like?
  • How do you know you’re lead by customer centricity values vs business objectives?
  • Does your board truly understand the customer connection?
  • The importance of giving customer success a voice at the table

PARTNER/CHANNEL MARKETING

MAXIMIZING BUSINESS VALUE WITH PARTNERS

In this Channel Marketing session we’ll focus on communicating value to, through, with and for channel partners.
The right approach depends on the Go-To-Market strategy and the objectives a business wants to achieve.

Today’s Partners typically work with 5–25 Vendors at any given time. The constant flow of information coming in from these Vendors can be disruptive, overwhelming, and confusing. Vendors who understand how to better engage and align marketing with their channel ecosystem are the ones winning the customers mindshare.

During this interactive panel we’ll hear from both Vendor and Partner side as we discuss

  • Revenue contribution
  • Partner engagement
  • Partner led demand creation, marketing contribution, ROI
  • Driving better engagement and fuelling marketing performance with partners.
  • Award winning partner transformation programs

CUSTOMER JOURNEYS

Session hosted by:
Hubspot at b2b marketing conference in melbourne australia 2022
Moderated by:

CREATING A CONNECTED CUSTOMER JOURNEY

Creating a seamless customer experience has never been more important, and competition out there is fierce. With the stakes for failure being higher than ever, it’s essential to build a customer journey with thoughtful and intentional touchpoints that are centered on adding value and sparking joy. Too often, the process of becoming a customer is disjointed, clunky and sub-parr – especially in the B2B space.

Join us for a 40-min workshop on structuring your customer journey to ensure a connected customer experience from the very beginning. We’ll focus on how to get the data we need without compromising user experience, what’s needed to minimise silos, how to leverage automation and create alignment between teams for long-term success.
