Munich, May 18, 2021 — In “The Great Debates Series,” the MMA brings the insights of six world-renowned marketing leaders to the masses.

In four panels, MMA Germany will summarize the growth frameworks discussed in the series and invite marketing experts from Germany and the surrounding region to share their insights and experiences. Whether they agree, disagree, or have an entirely different framework to offer, we want to hear what our local experts have to say.

In the first webinar, panelists will debate Dr. Peter Fader’s framework. Fader is professor of marketing at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a representative of a customer centric approach. Fader believes that marketers must leverage customer lifetime value, arguing marketers generate the best results when they find the customers most likely to buy their product or service — and then finding more of them. Marketers should analyze behavioral data to understand and forecast customer shopping/purchasing activities.

Can you choose valuable customers for profitable outcomes?
