11:25 - PANEL DISCUSSION: Liberate your media plan: The joy of revenue-driving creativity with brand partnerships in audio

Brand partnerships in audio are the unsung heroes of advertisers’ media plans. You may think it’s just a rubber stamp atop the show – or, at most, a participation medal for entry-level creativity. The reality is, brand partnerships deliver a multichannel campaign that stretches your media pounds, unlocks an untapped revenue stream, and presents an exciting creative challenge for advertisers.   

Join Global’s audio experts and on-air talent for a panel that celebrates the joy of audio partnerships. We dive into Barclaycard’s partnership with Capital: A delight for our radio presenters, a commercial success for our client, and an exciting creative challenge for the Global team.  

It takes a deep understanding of what an audio partnership can do, a brand that thinks outside the box, and the extraordinary creative ability to make anything happen.  

Discover how their successful partnership runs through everywhere that audio touches – including social media, digital audio, outdoor and experiential moments – to create an always-on partnership that stretches media spend further than you’d think.  

Rediscover the joy of partnerships, pushing the boundary with what you can do in audio.
