Williams said, “I am honored to share my experience and insight at the upcoming NexTargeting Summit. Today’s leading organizations are recognizing that marketing is a critical element to the success of the enterprise, yet the majority of organizations fail to realize the true potential impact that information can have in terms of long-term results.
