Trends Breakfast: Cultural Resurgence

Posted By Sara Hope, Monday, November 7, 2016

We are still reveling from Trends Breakfast: Cultural Resurgence, special thanks to all those who atended and a VERY BIG thank you to our inspiring speakers: All Def Digital's Russell Simmons and Josh Mandel, Reddit's Alexis Ohanian, & OZY's Carlos Watson, and to our sponsors OZY Media and Viant Technology.


We have heard lots of positive feedback from attendees and our takeaways about creating authentic content, the role that both the minority-majority millennial generation has to play in the future of content, and the short mediation session led by Russell will certainly stay with us!

Entertainment Marketing Breakfast 2014

Posted By thinkLA Aficionado, Monday, July 21, 2014
Updated: Monday, July 21, 2014
On July 17, 2014, over 500+ guests attended our 2014 Entertainment Marketing Breakfast at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel to discuss marketing trends in the millennial age. Here are three takeaways from our speakers:
  1. Millennials reach millennials. This generation is eager to share knowledge with their friends and go beyond the ordinary means of seeking information- they want an authentic and personalized message that they can depend on. – George Strompolos, Fullscreen
  2. Advertising is not the problem, bad advertising is. Millennials like to access information from their peers, trusted friends and close network. With constant overflow of advertising, they filter the most useful and practical advice for their everyday lives. "If you want to shape the future, then talk to it". – Kent Rees, Pivot TV
  3. The "Barney Affect" effect not only symbolizes a popular purple dinosaur show that most millennials grew up watching, but how those values of equality and justice still hold true for them today. Companies and brands should mirror their social responsibility in order to attract this generation to their products. Millennials expect brands to take note of their feedback and engage them in interactive communication. – Warren Wright, EVP of LifeCourse Associates.
