Event Date:

Location: Advance, Landemærket 29, 2nd floor


Marketing evolves at a rapid pace. Today, there are more channels and touchpoints, less control, more data, shorter attention spans, and an increasing demand for individual experiences and dialogues. These trends are well-recognized, but what are the implications for how we create meaningful global communication?

Building off Gavin Mulligan’s recent talk at the CMO Challenges, Advance will present the nine principles that we consider key to building strong global brands and staying true to your brand in a world that never stands still. Anna Chapman, Senior Strategist at Contagious London, will share insights from this year’s Cannes Lions and her office’s analysis of what makes creative solutions winning creative solutions. A panel discussion will follow on how we can harness creativity to create growth.
