Regaining the Thrown: How Burger King Leveraged Culture and Conversation to Drive Brand Love


How many times have brands slapped a hashtag on a campaign hoping to drive social conversation only to be met an unimpressive dribble of tweets? Come hear three case studies about how Burger King flipped the script with socially relevant campaigns that trended on twitter, increased brand love and gained industry recognition by conceiving creative ideas out of cultural conversations.


The Speaker:


Adam Gagliardo | Senior Director, Media | CKE Restaurants Holdings, Inc.
As an integrated marketer with a passion for digital transformation and consumer insights, Adam has spent his career driving change at challenger brands such as Maybelline, Garnier, essie and Burger King. During his time at Burger King he was a part of the marketing leadership team that relaunched Chicken Fries, won multiple Cannes Lions for campaigns like Proud Whopper and the McWhopper Proposal and partnered with Snoop Dog to launch hot dogs at the chain. Adam moved to Nashville to pursue the next chapter in his challenger brand story as Senior Director of Media for Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s.
