VP Marketing and Innovation | Alpro


In these hectic times we feel we need to be fast and sprint all the time. The possibilities for a marketer are unlimited. Even with so many channels to send messages, it was never so hard to establish real & firm relations. That’s why Séverine is still convinced it is worth to regularly stop running and take a step back to see the broader picture.

Having a clear lighthouse, the basics well set, enables the teams to take fast and consistent decisions. Séverine, marketeer of the year, will talk about how Alpro has built its brand and business on strong foundations.

We’re living through an era of unprecendented disruption driven by mobile devices. Toady people are living their lives on mobile, spending on average 3 hours per day there.
