Workshop overview

External pressures such as globalisation, digital transformation and sustainability, coupled with operational and capability challenges within organisations, demand rapid and creative responses from marketers and agencies alike.

Marketing has a vital contribution to make in helping businesses thrive in this environment. But its potential role in driving sustainable, profitable growth by creating better value for customers is not always well understood or valued. Consequently, agency partners are also held back and are less able to provide the passion, strategic support and broader creative excellence they can offer.

This workshop will provide insights, ideas and examples to help marketing and agency leaders address these issues in practice.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of our book The Growth Drivers: The Definitive Guide to Transforming Marketing Capabilities.

If you happen to be in Cannes, or know anyone who will be, we’d be delighted if you joined us.

Date: Thursday 21st June

Time: 09:30-10:30 and again at 14:00-15:00

Location: Workshop room
