Alternative ways of managing marcoms 2.0 


21 November 2017  ¦  08:30-12:30  ¦  ISBA Offices, London  ¦  Exclusive to ISBA Members

Following our successful event last year that showcased companies that offer an alternative way of managing communications, we have found 6 new companies we think members will find interesting and have invited them in to share their propositions with ISBA members in a quick hit half day. 

These agencies may work direct inside client organisations, offer expert depth knowledge of a particular sector like Millennials,  use new tech solutions to deliver services in the influencer space, offer innovative new ways of working around innovation or experiential or even be completely brand new to the marketplace .  

Members often ask us about trends in the agency marketplace, so we created this event purely as a showcase for what we think are some exciting offerings.  It will be a quick fire half day with lots of presentations, each organisation will have 25 minutes to showcase what they offer.  

Last year we booked up pretty quickly so do let us know ASAP if you’d like to attend, places are limited so be speedy! To book please contact Elvira Bagge.
