Event description
Robert Half Creative will have in attendance some of the smartest creatives, agency entrepreneurs and marketers who are driving change.

About this Event

We would like you to join us at our Robert Half Creative event in Bristol where we will have speakers and mentors to those in the creative sector looking for insight from dynamic agencies and leading creatives in the industry.

Our guest speakers (see below) will be addressing “How do design agencies change their model?” And “Is creativity at risk if marketers expect everything to be better, faster and cheaper?”.

The event will be held on Thursday 15th August from 4pm to 10.30pm. There will also be a courtyard area with welcome drinks on entry and live DJ at the Square Club. The evening will include plenty of time to network with like minded peers.

The Guest speaker panel will aim to examine what all this disruption means for internal and external M&A in the agency sector. This is a great opportunity for you to join us and international agency leaders to answer industry specific questions on how to approach these hurdles in the sector and how it impacts winning new clients and the way the world of design and marketing work together.
