The Future of Paid is Creator Made (Workshop Stage 1)
Gen Z is quickly becoming a key piece of the consumer puzzle, as it matures and its spending power grows rapidly. But today, these audiences have shifted their attention and trust away from publishers towards people, aspiration to belonging, and exclusive to inclusive. So how can brands reach this key audience? The simple answer, the Creator Economy. In this session, Emma Harman, Chief Client Officer, Whalar and a panel of creators provide a guide to the Creator Economy, exploring the value of brands mobilising creators, culture, and commerce to engage communities and consumers at scale.
Creating Your Content Supply Chain: How To Meet Your Customers’ Demand For High Quality Content (Workshop Stage 2)

Join us for a content supply chain masterclass with Doug Straton, Chief Customer Evangelist at Bazaarvoice, and Emmanuel Gerbier, Senior Director, Client Success, Bazaarvoice to learn how to activate and leverage a content supply chain to fuel e-commerce growth.

Join Brave in this session to learn the ins and outs of Web3 and how you can connect with privacy-conscious audiences on their terms.
Brands Without Borders: Staying Relevant, Globally (Workshop Stage 2)

Rebooting Emotion Back Into Advertising
It seems we always base an advertisement’s level of impact on the way it makes us feel, even the way it made us laugh, or at least we used to, however according to Kantar research the use of comedy in ads has continued to diminish year-on-year for the last decade while proving to be the most effective form of creative communications.
Hear from Dom Boyd, Managing Director at Kantar on those findings and hear a discussion involving both Genevieve Hole, Business Director, VCCP on behalf of Cadbury and Chris Goddard, Global Marketing Director, Johnnie Walker on how they have developed recent campaigns internationally while navigating the ever-shifting responses to advertising and remaining loyal to their organization’s backbone.

Deborah Darlington of The Co-operative Bank and David Hayman of Make My Money Matter will discuss with Adweek whether current brand guidelines are doing enough to address green-hushing in order to prevent customers from being misled on the topic of sustainability, and what we can do to allow this topic to not be so intimidating and misunderstood.
