There is no hack for sustainable growth
Behavioral science teaches us the tricks with which we can direct people's behavior in the short term, but psychological research shows how unsustainable that is. Meanwhile, the same research shows a much more interesting approach: motivating behavior through communication based on your brand's distinctive identity. In other words, investing in yourself will enable and motivate the customer to choose you, and is the best way to achieve sustainable growth.
Stephanie Duval and Nele Pieters developed a science-based methodology to guide companies step by step in building an identity that enables sustainable growth. They described their vision in their book You Do You, and Stephanie Duval will introduce it in a clear and inspiring way during her key note.

Digital Content Marketing Congress is looking for speakers!Get involved
Kindly supported by
DCMC is an excellent opportunity for sponsors to connect with a community who is passionate about design and creativity.
Boost your knowledge and experience of digital content marketing. And do it in an inspiring and interactive way. That is our mission. Mediaforta has been organising the Digital Content Marketing Congress annually, since 2013. Always 100% digital and still completely free. With more than 100 national and international top speakers, DCMC has become a regular digital appointment for driven marketers, content creators and students.
In a nutshell:
Belgian and international top marketers as well as experienced content producers will be speaking enthusiastically about their practical experience and expertise. Expect concise live presentations. Don't expect dull, tedious explanations. Our speakers will share practical experiences, present pragmatic cases and offer useful tips. Hands-on and sometimes out of the box. In short, get access to practical takeaways that you can put to immediate use at your company.
You don't just have to listen... Have a critical remark? Need of more information? Put your questions directly to the marketers to get immediate answers to the specific aspects that are relevant to your business. That way, you can also interact with our speakers. It’s a convenient way to expand your network and perhaps lay the foundations for a productive, future collaboration.
There is no need to travel for DCMC 2021. The same goes for finding a parking space. Follow the congress wherever you choose to: at home, at the office or, as far as we are concerned, even in a sun-drenched resort. A stable internet connection and a few clicks of the mouse are enough to put the speakers on your screen. We don't use fancy and complicated software; we prefer to keep things easy for you. Because who doesn't like efficiency?
