What it means to be a 21st century brand: Live stream from Thinkbox

Join us today, 9 June, to watch the live stream from Thinkbox, which will explore what it means to be a 21st century brand and the art of writing for TV.

Thinkbox asks Sara Bennison, chief marketing officer, Nationwide Building Society, Tracey Follows, chief strategy and innovation officer at The Future Laboratory, and Rian Shah, managing partner, strategy at OMD UK, what it means to be a 21st century brand, fuelled by theories from three of this year’s IPA Excellence Diploma winners: Susanna Cousins, Scott Brenman and John Scott.

Adam Morgan, founder of eatbigfish, shares thoughts from his acclaimed new book A Beautiful Constraint, a guide for transforming limitations into opportunities.

Ben Page, CEO of Ipsos Mori, highlight the real and present dangers of letting poor research into the world and how you can spot it.

Finally, Thinkbox takes a closer look at the art of writing for TV, in conversation with Kate Stanners, global chief creative officer of Saatchi & Saatchi, and Peter Souter, chairman and chief creative officer of TBWA. The industry leaders discuss if new TV technology is changing the writing game and whether the worlds of TV programmes and ads can learn from each other.
