Can You Be Faster, Fresher, Better, More Fun?
Mark Earls, Herdmeister, @herdmeister, The Herd & Laura Jordan Bambach, @laurajaybee, Creative Partner, Mr President & Co-Founder SheSays
How we can make work better, faster and have more fun doing it? The machines say "agile"; procurement says "cheaper"; we say "more human”. In the age of booming adtech, with the drive for innovation and hyper efficiency, the role for great creativity can seem less important. But in fact brilliant, human ideas have never been more central to the success of a brand.
Misfits & Madmen
Sam Ball, @samuelball, Creative Director, M&C Saatchi
We are going to inject the creative department with a bunch off misfits. A cage fighter, a poet, an international rugby player, a philosopher... We will set them the same brief and then in this talk, share the results, examining how diversity of thought can transform a creative idea.
