Announcing The Masters of Marketing 2015 winners: Day One

Day one of The Festival of Marketing saw the first ever winners of The Masters of Marketing awards announced throughout the day.

The shortlisted work was showcased from the Masters Gallery and broadcast across Festival TV.


How brands can become more customer-centric, and why it matters

We’re very excited about our Festival of Marketing kicking off tomorrow, and in anticipation of the event I caught up with one of the speakers on the day, Suki Thompson, CEO and Co-Founder of marketing consultancy The Oystercatchers.

Suki and I discussed the idea of customer-centricity: how brands can create a better customer focus through their actions and technology and which companies are currently doing it best.

On 12 November Sir John Hegarty, one of the world's most respected ad men, is set to lead a world record attempt at day two of the Festival of Marketing.

Play Buzzword Bingo to win a ticket to The Festival of Marketing 2015

Like most industries, marketing is cursed with its own peculiar set of buzzwords and catchphrases.

The best of these are almost totally unique to marketers, eliciting nothing more than a confused look verging on utter disdain from those outside the profession.


Win tickets to #FOM15 by guessing the secret speaker

It probably hasn’t escaped your attention that we’ll be hosting the Festival of Marketing on 11-12 November.

We’ve already announced a load of amazing speakers, including marketers from the world’s biggest brands plus a few star names with inspirational stories to tell.

But we’re not done yet, and there’s one more secret speaker we’re very excited about so we thought we’d reveal their identity via the medium of a ticket giveaway.

Reasons to attend Festival of Marketing 2015

Ashley Friedlein's 202 reasons to attend The Festival of Marketing [video]

It is now just under six weeks until our Festival of Marketing on 11-12 November at Tobacco Dock in London.


Ashley Friedlein’s top 10 unmissable talks at the Festival of Marketing

Which ten sessions top my list to attend at the Festival of Marketing?

It’s a tough one. Partly because there are over 200 to choose from. Partly because I have programmed quite a few of the sessions so am biased. 

But I find I have had to fire Lord Sugar from my top 10 (sorry Sir Alan), and even Monica Lewinsky does not make the cut even though I’ve heard she is a great speaker. I have also cheated by sneaking in a few “honourable mentions” without counting them in my ten.

I like to attend a mix up the more serious, authoritative, immediately useful and valuable, with the new and inspiring. So I have grouped my ten picks under a few headings:


Lord Alan Sugar announced as headline speaker at Festival of Marketing

Lord Sugar, everyone’s favourite no-nonsense boss and Twitter heavyweight will open the Headline Stage at this year’s Festival of Marketing.

Taking place on 11-12 November in London, the award-winning event is the place where marketers, brands and agencies meet to celebrate, discover and shape the future of marketing.


Q&A: How Maersk Line created a brilliant B2B social media strategy

No conversation about B2B social media would be complete without a mention of Maersk Line.

The shipping company has managed to do the seemingly impossible and make social media an important part of its marketing mix.

To find out more about Maersk Line’s social strategy I interviewed Davina Rapaport, who is the company’s Pulse and Social Media Manager.


Astronaut Chris Hadfield announced as headline speaker at Festival of Marketing

Colonel Chris Hadfield, former commander of the International Space Station, has been announced as one of the headline speakers at this year’s Festival of Marketing.

Taking place on 11-12 November in London, the award-winning event is the place where marketers, brands and agencies meet to celebrate, discover and shape the future of marketing.


Introducing our free Festival of Marketing Workbook

Ahead of this year’s Festival of Marketing we’re publishing a free Workbook that includes all the topics covered at the event.

Each chapter will include details of the latest trends, tips, advice and case studies relating to a different content stream.

I’ve had the pleasure of writing the first chapter, which focuses on the latest developments in social media.
