Tenzing natural energy entrepreneur to tackle the big dogs
By Dan Brain, Content & Marketing Director, MAD//Fest London10 October, 2018
Former Red Bull marketer and Tenzing Founder Huib van Bockel is among the latest disruptors confirmed to speak at MAD//Fest London on 28-29 Nov.
Van Bockel launched Tenzing - a low calorie, plant-based drink with energising vitamin C, natural caffeine and electrolytes - to disrupt the energy drinks market by providing a healthy alternative. The category is saturated with high sugar products made from artificial ingredients.
Van Bockel, who played an instrumental role in establishing Red Bull as a pioneering content creator, will deliver a main stage slot on Disrupting the big dogs: how marketing can give you the edge.
“I can’t compete with their budgets and resources, but I can use marketing to shout about how we’re different,” he said.
Van Bockel joins a stellar list of CMOs, visionaries and disruptors who will tackle MAD//Fest London’s theme, Marketing + Innovation = Everything.
The theme is an exploration of how marketing, tech and thinking out of the box can enable business to thrive in a world where disruption is the norm and the traditional tactics have ceased to work so effectively. The agenda also includes contributions from Uber, Monzo, Deliveroo and Twitter.
We’re thrilled to have a marketer and entrepreneur with such energy, enthusiasm and creative instinct at MAD//Fest. Tenzing will be available to attendees, meaning you don’t need to worry about your late afternoon slump!
