Ritson is returning to the Headline Stage where he received a great reception in 2017, debating Professor Byron Sharp on the merits of targeted marketing (read the write-up here).

Before joining Facebook in 2014, Hatch worked at agencies Y&R, Omnicom, WPP and MEC. He is now chair of the CBI Tech Group, and has co-authored the book ‘Rigorous Magic’ on brands and ideas, published by John Wiley & Sons.

Both speakers will be covering a variety of topics across the future of marketing and communications.

All that’s left to do is head to the Festival of Marketing website to view the full agenda and book tickets.
