We hosted the first Adweek Symposium last week with a single goal: to bring together a diverse group of CMOs, CBOs, CEOs, innovators and Gen ZEOs to talk openly and candidly about what’s working, what’s not and what’s possible for the current and future state of marketing.

We opened the day with a lively panel of founders, CEOs and entrepreneurs in their early 20s who we refer to as the Gen ZEOs. They started their own companies to tackle gaps they see in the world of marketing and are bravely embracing new ways of thinking. This session features Tiffany Zhong, founder & CEO, Zebra IQ; Andy McCune, COO & co-founder, Unfold; Drake Rehfeld, CEO and co-founder, Demeanor; and Dylan Gambardella, co-founder and co-CEO, Next Gen Summit.

Have a listen to hear more on the opportunities that lie ahead—and why for Gen Z, just adding a ping-pong table to your conference room won’t cut it. Nadine Dietz is chief community officer at Adweek and host of the CMO Moves podcast.
