Most brand marketers would love to have the time and resources to work on little else but their long-term vision for the brand, a plan that would allow them to gradually increase brand value and develop effective and interesting brand partnerships. Only this week, Campaign reports in an opinion piece by Kantar ahead of International Women's Day (March 8) that long-term brand commitments to causes are a key factor in driving consumer engagement, with examples being Tata Tea, Nike and Dove's successful decades-long projects to support gender equality. 

But pressure to create instant bottom-line impact means that pitches and decisions are too often governed only by short-term goals, with short-term results. Is it possible to strike a balance? 

At Campaign360 on March 5 in Singapore, two CMO champions will take the stage to share their learnings about how to convince all stakeholders to invest in your long-term plan, and what outcomes this brings. 

Cheryl Goh, CMO of the phenomenally successful transport, food delivery and payments solution firm Grab, will be joined by Karen Ngui, managing director and head of group strategic marketing at DBS, the brand behind the innovative 'Bank Less' strategy unveiled last year in Singapore. 

Now entering its third year, Campaign360 gathers the most influential global and regional media and marketing heads in a forum to ignite change. You can see the full Campaign360 agenda here
