Generic designs have become somewhat of a misnomer in conversations circling around web these days. Customers are bored and slightly annoyed by how predictable and uninspired most experiences have become. They find it difficult to distinguish between brands, and the unconditional loyalty is a rarity these days. While A/B testing every single button and the shade of it, we are losing the big picture, oftentimes losing our customers along the way, often irrevocably.

In this talk, Vitaly Friedman, the co-founder of Smashing Magazine, will shed some light into a strategy of how to bring personality back to our brands, and how to enable businesses to strive and stand out.


15:05 – 15:40 The Imposter Syndrome: 6 Lessons from a Marketing Fraud  – Tiffany DaSilva (Growth Marketing Consultant)
Tiffany daSilva speaker at GPeC SUMMIT Bucharest Romania - The most important E-Commerce & Digital Marketing Event in Eastern Europe
English Language Session | Simultaneous Translation Available in Romanian

In her talk, Tiffany discusses how 70% of people from all walks of life, both men and women experience imposter syndrome at some point in their careers. Tiffany shares her own experiences along with the framework and tools she uses every day to eliminate it.

Key Takeaways:

  • Find people like you to form a group on Slack, WhatsApp or Facebook: discuss problems, share experiences, promote each others content, and have honest and transparent conversations to help support one another.
  • Identify people you need to cut out or ignore. Who is the villain in your life? You need to set boundaries for how you’re going to deal with them.
  • Visualise your race and visualise yourself winning it. People who envision their successes tend to be the ones that outperform their peers.

Cristi Movila Country Manager VTEX speaking at GPeC SUMMIT - The most important E-Commerce & Digital Marketing event in Eastern Europe
Romanian Language Session | Simultaneous Translation Available in English

Continuity, consistency, flexibility or frictionless are still words that are out of the omnichannel vocabulary. Big players still treat channels and allocate resources depending on each channel’s return or attention it receives from the general public, instead of having a unified commerce and a frictionless customer experience. Why unified commerce and not omnichannel? You will get the answer in this talk.


09:45 – 10:45 Lasting Impact – Ryan Holiday (Bestselling Author, Marketer & Entrepreneur)
Ryan Holiday pentru prima data in Romania la GPeC SUMMIT - Evenimentul Anului in E-Commerce si Marketing Online
English Language Session | Simultaneous Translation Available in Romanian

Understand the difference between products and companies that appear in our lives as fads for a short while, and those that have a lasting impact on the way we think, live and work.

How did the movie “The Shawshank Redemption” fail at the box office but go on to gross more than $100 million as a cult classic? How did “The 48 Laws of Power” miss the bestseller lists for more than a decade and still sell more than a million copies? How is Iron Maiden still filling stadiums worldwide without radio or TV exposure forty years after the band was founded?

Bestselling author and marketer Ryan Holiday calls such works and artists perennial sellers. How do they endure and thrive while most books, movies, songs, video games, and pieces of art disappear quickly after initial success? How can we create and market creative works that achieve longevity?

For the first time in Romania, Ryan Holiday explores this mystery by drawing on his extensive experience working with businesses and creators such as Google, American Apparel and the author John Grisham. Holiday reveals that the key to success for many perennial sellers is that their creators don’t distinguish between the making and the marketing. The product’s purpose and audience are in the creator’s mind from day one. By thinking holistically about the relationship between their audience and their work, creators of all kinds improve the chances that their offerings will stand the test of time.
