Orange and Abbey clients to speak at Campaign Creative Conference

Two influential clients will be speaking at this year's Campaign Creative Conference on 7 October.

Jeremy Dale, the brand marketing director for Orange UK, and Angus Porter, the customer propositions director at Abbey will be joined by leading practitioners and thinkers for a day that is designed to explore creative ideas and how to inspire creative thinking.

In a session called "You're not from round here, are you?", Dave Alberts of Grey London, Matt Eastwood of M&C Saatchi London and Markus Bjurman and Cecilia Dufils of Mother will consider why the world looks at London as an icon of advertising and what the influx of foreign talent is bringing to London.

Other speakers include Peter York, who will ask whether Britain is losing the plot in the creative industries. John Harlow, a partner at Naked Communications, will explore how creativity risks being ironed out of the advertising, media and music industries as business pressures demand predictability.

Three speakers will deliver Masterclasses on work that they admire and why. They are: Jacques Seguela, the chief creative officer of Havas and the founder of RSCG; Tim Hincks, the creative director of Endemol and Daniel Kleinman, the most awarded director at this year's D&AD Awards.

The conference will be held at London's Dorchester Hotel on 7 October.
