[Marketing Ops] Uncomfortable MarTech Creative Production Questions you Should Ask…...But Don’t

The CMO Roundtable discussion will focus on three key areas, namely people, process, and platforms.

People – why are our key stakeholders not aligned?
Process – why is our creative production process broken and out of date?
Platforms – why do we have many, many, many platforms to run our marketing operations?

Firstly, the participants will explore the reasons why the key stakeholders are not aligned and identify ways to address this issue. Then the discussion will delve into the creative production process and determine why it is broken and out of date.

The participants will brainstorm solutions to revamp the process and ensure its efficiency. Lastly, the group will examine the challenges associated with having numerous platforms to run marketing operations and seek ways to streamline them to enhance overall effectiveness.

The roundtable promises to be an informative and productive session that will yield actionable insights to improve the organisation’s marketing operations.

Event Agenda


Guido Derkx

Chief Commercial Officer, Storyteq

Guido Derkx, Chief Commercial Officer at Storyteq, has been with the company since its 2016 origins in his home country of the Netherlands. As the need for content increases, Guido is dedicated to automating the way multiple versions of creative assets are reproduced, affording creative people more time to work on new ideas. After earning his commercial and business stripes in other industries, he decided to further explore his fascination for making things better and simpler within the creative industry. He drove Storyteq’s transition from a video production agency to a Creative Automation platform, after the then five-person agency noticed the problem themselves of painstakingly creating many versions of the same piece of product advertising. Guido is now again one of those faces at the helm of Storyteq’s latest expansion, which offers a one-of-a-kind solution that not only scales creative production but provides a system for the planning and optimization stages of a campaign across workflows, departments, and all marketing operations.
