Be Unforgettable: Emotional Marketing Mastery with 50x Award-Winning Marketer, Keka DasGupta

Do you want to have a speaker brand that people actively seek out, where you don’t have to “pitch” to prospects because they come to you first?

Do you want to create “talk value” around what you offer as a speaker, so decision-makers feel inspired to share your profile with other leaders, unprompted?

Do you want to your marketing to work harder for you, so you don’t have to do the nitty-gritty grind every day?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, then this CAPS Toronto programming is not-to-be-missed. (And if you think your topic of expertise doesn’t call for emotional marketing, remember, EVERY decision we make as humans, no matter the category, is driven by our emotions.)

You will get to learn from Keka DasGupta, a 50x award-winning marketer, who has won the global “Oscars of the PR industry” twice (once in 2016, and again this year). She has judged several of Canada’s preeminent marketing awards, and last year, she shared her expertise at the Global Speakers Summit in Dublin, Ireland to rave reviews. Keka’s marketing experience over 25 years includes work for such iconic brands as: Disney, Nike, American Express, Mercedes-Benz, IKEA, and Johnson & Johnson, alongside a host of entrepreneurs and small businesses just like yours.

We have a powerful day planned for you that includes an interactive afternoon masterclass, and then our signature CAPS Toronto evening programming.
