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.

In my latest Forbes CMO post, I share the best insights and marketing innovation trends I took away from the conference.

Here are a few highlights:Lisa Nirell moderates the Millennial Marketing Panel at Adobe Summit 2015
