Fresh From Adobe Summit: Top Marketing Innovation Trends

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been sharing about my time as a panel leader and invited guest at this year’s Adobe Digital Summit. I had the pleasure of meeting and exchanging ideas with a panoply of marketers, bloggers, analysts, and Adobe executives.
