Our Festival of Marketing event was last week crowned ‘Event of the Year’ by the PPA.

I thought I'd give November's Festival (12-13) a push and list some of the speakers we have confirmed, as well as blog posts about each brand mentioned, to give a bit of background.

The Festival of Marketing is all about educating, inspiring, celebrating and empowering today’s modern marketer. It includes 120 sessions across ten streams, plus one-to-one advice clinics and networking with 4,000 senior marketers from across every sector.

We hope to see you at Tobacco Docks in London!

1. Mike Bracken

The executive director of Government Digital Services, is a headline speaker.

GDS has been the poster child of digital transformation. Not to be missed.

2. Laura Wade-Gery

The exec director of multichannel ecommerce at M&S, is also a headline speaker.

It’s been a big year for M&S with the revamp of many stores and a new website and contact centres.


3. Aaron Eccles

This is the man behind Cancer Research UK’s #nomakeupselfie campaign. Read about how his team engineered the fundraising phenomenon.

4. Kenny Jacobs

The CMO of Ryanair, will be speaking. With the launch recently of Ryanair Labs, there’s certainly plenty afoot in Dublin.

5. Lars Silberbauer-Anderson

LEGO’s global head of social media is speaking! If you aren’t familiar with Lego’s social activity, it’s awesome, so hopefully Lars will have lots to say.

Elinor is head of the brand for ITV Research & Planning (services & strategy hub). With such changing times for TV and subscription media, see what she has to say about ITV’s audience. 

7. Rob Grimshaw

The MD of FT.com is in the speaker line-up. With lots of interesting innovations in content and advertising at the FT, you don’t want to miss it.

10. Albert Hogan

The head of digital strategy at Universal Pictures, will hopefully bring some of the glamour of silver screen to the stage.
