Marc Mathieu, SVP of Marketing at Unilever: Keynote Speaker at 2014 We First Brand Leadership Summit­­

We are so excited this year that Marc Mathieu of Unilever can open the presentations at the We First Summit at the SLS Hotel, Beverly Hills, on October 7-8 in Beverly Hills.

Marc is responsible for the development of Unilever’s new marketing strategy — Crafting Brands For Life — that will support the company’s sustainability growth ambition of doubling the size of its business while reducing its environmental impact.

Prior to joining Unilever he was SVP of Global Brand Marketing at Coca-Cola, where he created the ‘Coke Side of Life’ global campaign, launched Coke Zero into 50 markets, and developed their sustainability platform, “Live positively”. He is also the co-founder of Bedo brand consultancy and sits on the Advisory Panel of the Guardian Digital and Media network, and writes regularly for Campaign magazine.

At the We First Summit, Marc will be addressing how you align your business for growth and impact in a world facing a growing number of social crises. He is an expert in defining what story a brand should tell so that it’s meaningful and relevant to the lives of its employees, partners, and customers.

Marc will be sharing a powerful message that shows how many of the social challenges we face are in fact enormous opportunities for those brands willing to rise to the challenge of uniting purpose and profit to ensure long-term success and social impact.
