DC Cahalane- CEO of Republic of Work

Disrupting Digital Strategy

Why driving attention is delivering nothing and how to get back on track and deliver real commercial returns.

What if everything we currently know about marketing is actually what is holding us back? Over the 50 years, we’ve watched as the entire world changed the way it buys and stays loyal to brands. But marketing departments are still operating in the same, campaign-centric, product-led operation that they’ve been following forever. The most innovative companies around the world have achieved remarkable marketing results by fundamentally changing their approach.

DC will discuss how companies that fail to directly connect marketing efforts to sales outcomes are doomed to failure, how the value of brand must be carefully managed to avoid burnout and how attention without activation is the greatest threat to modern marketing.

CEO and co-founder of REPUBLIC OF WORK, DC Cahalane is a full stack marketer who’s worked internationally on some of the world’s largest brands and led commercial, marketing and growth at some amazing Irish companies like Teamwork.com and Trustev. A specialist in launching new brands into international markets, he’s worked with companies all over the world and has spoken at international events for companies like Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google and Mastercard.
