LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - April 12, 2017) - IDENTIFIED. The Customer Identity Conference, founded by Gigya, today announced a dynamic lineup of keynotes and speakers who will present innovative ideas and actionable best practices at the event on 6th June at 8 Northumberland Avenue, a historic venue just steps from London's Trafalgar Square.

IDENTIFIED ( is the first conference dedicated to customer identity and the business imperative of turning anonymous online visitors into known, loyal customers.

The keynote speakers are:

  • Fatemeh Khatibloo, a leading privacy analyst at Forrester Research, who will explain how the power of trust and respect for consumer privacy rights can deepen customer engagement.
  • Patrick Salyer, chief executive officer of Gigya, who will go through five megatrends driving changes in customer identity and access management (CIAM), including how CIAM is becoming a central component of the marketing technology stack and how organisations can build better customer relationships through progressive identity.
  • Baroness Karren Brady, the "first lady of football" and chief executive officer of West Ham United Football Club, who will give the closing keynote.

"As the founder of IDENTIFIED, Gigya is honoured to have so many thought leaders and marketing influencers presenting at an event that will dive deeply into these topics, delivering new information and ideas that will give attendees an unfair advantage over their competition."
