How do prestigious firms like McKinsey consistently publish exceptional content that commands marketplace attention? How do influential publications like Harvard Business Review and Forbes determine which of thousands of article submissions to publish? How do you use multi-year research to change the very conversation in the economy? How do you sell your CEO on thought leadership?
At Profiting From Thought Leadership 2017, you will get a peak inside the McKinsey thought leadership machine, hear from senior editors at HBR and Forbes on how to get published, and learn how to use primary research to become the leading expert in your domain. Each year, we invite no more than 35 senior marketers to converge and discuss the driving questions of the knowledge economy. This year, you will hear from speakers at McKinsey, HBR, Forbes, The National Center for the Middle Market, Array Architects, Bloom Group and Rattleback.
If your firm competes on thought leadership this conference is for you.
