Featuring a line-up of 20 speakers, the one-day conference aims to strip marketing of the jargon and get down to the bare bones of what really matters: delivering better results and improving ROI.

"We are delighted to have Nedbank on board and can’t wait to show delegates the true essence of marketing, stripped of the spin. It’s time to take the profession to a new dimension, where we don’t need to rely on buzzwords to prove our effectiveness because the bottom line speaks for itself," says Dale Hefer, CEO of the IMC.

Khensani Nobanda, group executive: marketing and corporate affairs, Nedbank, says, "The IMC journey is one that is familiar to us. It aligns with our passion to innovate as a way of ensuring that the marketing function maintains and grows its relevance as a key competitive component, and strategic enabler of any business."
