Led by Jennifer Gottlieb, President W2O Group and Kevin Johnson, President W2O Analytics

The abundance of data, and the progress and application of machine learning and AI, has allowed us as marketing and communication consultants to provide more tailored insights and in turn more customized strategic guidance to our clients on a real-time basis like never before. We now use data to identify specific audiences and those who have influence, the natural language these audiences use to communicate, the context in which they communicate in, and the channels where they most often get information and engage. At a time when companies are pushing the limits of innovation, fiercely competing for market share and working hard to grab customer attention in a distracted world, flipping the model to be truly audience-centric and one of influence vs., one-way communication is critical. This session will provide examples of how data can be woven throughout the research, strategic and creative process and be applied to full omnichannel PESO activation. The customer has spoken and is speaking in real-time, so we have to keep our ear to the ground, listen and tailor our communications for maximum impact.

Kevin Johnson, President, W20 Analytics

Kevin started a research and analytics agency focused on the healthcare industry in 2008 with the goal of helping healthcare companies understand how their key stakeholders engage on social media and in key communities. The company’s initial focus was on providing clients with a platform to view and analyze engagements in real time, but Kevin pivoted the company in 2010 based on client feedback and foreseeing trends in the social analytics market that showed social media monitoring platforms becoming commoditized and only being a piece of the puzzle in understanding customer engagement on social media.

Kevin believed the real value would be in the ability to analyze those engagements with a more hands-on approach grounded in custom research frameworks. W2O acquired Kevin’s company in 2016.

Kevin received his degree in Marketing from The Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University.

He resides in New Hope, PA with his wife Caitlin and three children, including identical twin boys and baby girl.
