    Event description

    Last year we held one of the best-attended and most interactive sessions of the entire festival. Join us this time in which we aim to build upon that success by challenging what the Future of Marketing will be perceived as and how to operate in such a dynamic atmosphere.Β 

    Marketing has recently become one of the more challenging jobs to have. In today's society, in order for a business to survive it needs to have creative and analytical minds behind it and must always be up-to-date with the constantly changing market landscape.Β 

    Throughout the evening we will provide crucial insight into this along with some tips and tricks on how to stay afloat. We will also hold a spirited discussion which will include topics such as digital influencers, creative marketing and consumer experience.Β

    Darren Spiller - Chief Creative Officer at McCANN

    He believes for ideas to work today they must be created at the speed of culture. It is this attitude that has enabled his work to win awards of all colours in major award shows around the world and to be voted in the U.S Adweek’s’ top one hundred creatives for 2018. Darren has Creatively led a number of Agencies in both Australia, New Zealand and the U.S and that has allowed him to work on such famous brands as Nike, Cadillac, NBC, McDonalds, Toyota, Nestle and

    Westpac to name a few. After bringing up five children, running a farm and at the same time building a career in advertising he thinks that Brand Building is the fun relaxing part of the day. It is that playful positive spirit he has towards the Industry that he summons when motivating University students, when nominated to judge Award shows or partake in Industry talks.
