“The Business Guide to AI” is a new program gathering the world’s foremost business and AI leaders to discuss the evolving landscape of AI as it relates to marketing

October 3, 2023 – Today Bloomberg Media and the ANA Global CMO Growth Council announced “The Business Guide to AI”, a multi-channel program providing actionable and practical insights for CMOs and business leaders seeking to leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate their businesses. This cross-channel partnership, anchored by in-person leadership workshops at various Bloomberg Media and ANA Global CMO Growth Council events, will kick off in 2023 and run through 2024.

This partnership with the ANA Global CMO Growth Council is Bloomberg Media’s latest effort driven by its advertising business to reinforce its unique knowledge, leadership and positioning in the technology space. It launches on the heels of a number of newsroom initiatives expanding Bloomberg Media’s AI coverage across channels, including video, events, TV, radio, podcasts, and print as well as a new Bloomberg Original series, AI IRL, hosted by Bloomberg journalists Jackie Davalos and Nate Lanxon.

The partnership will officially launch through a joint event at the ANA’s Global CMO Growth Council Summit at the Masters of Marketing conference. The annual Summit convenes hundreds of CMO delegates from the world’s top brands combining over half of all global advertising and media spending, to discuss marketing’s role as a force for growth and innovation.

“We’ve long admired the ANA’s ability to connect top marketing leaders from around the world,” said Anne Kawalerski, Chief Client Officer, Bloomberg Media. “With our combined unique networks and industry expertise, we’re excited to bring together brand leaders to dissect AI challenges through case studies in order to shine a light on marketing creativity and problem-solving.”

To make “The Business Guide to AI” learnings and insights available to a broader audience, Bloomberg Media and the ANA will house video content, including the bespoke case study presentations and intimate business leader interviews from the co-hosted events, on their owned channels.

“Bloomberg is a leading platform for business conversations, consistently providing business leaders with relevant context and acute insights to make informed decisions,” said Nick Primola, Group Executive Vice President, ANA Global CMO Growth Council. “AI is the newest complicated reality for business leaders, and this first-of-its kind partnership allows us to leverage the gold-standard business building expertise and resources available through ANA with the visibility and award-winning content development capability of Bloomberg to create a practical and actionable platform for CMOs and business leaders to integrate AI into their business growth strategies.”
