Agencies of the future
Guests: Kristi Vandenbosch, US president, Oliver; Kunal Muzumdar, managing director, Analogfolk; Tarek Nseir, European vice-president and head of digital engagement practice, EPAM; and Faye Daffarn, managing director, TUG
Agencies are the vanguard of the marketing industry. They are the ones responsible for introducing new technologies and creative ideas, in addition to advising on new ways of working and business models that go on to shape the working world. The most successful are also – by nature and necessity – nimble, changing quickly in response to changes in the landscape.
This session sees a raft of experts discussing what the agency of the future looks like, whether that’s distributed, employee-owned or more deeply integrated with clients.
