New event: Magnetic Stories

Magnetic Stories

Magnetic Stories will bring together media planners and members of the advertising community for couple of hours, with a drink in hand, to hear interesting tales from diverse people with points of views within our industry.

Each event is designed to prompt debate and spark conversations around some of the challenges and issues affecting our industry right now. Our annual Spark conference has already featured bite-sized story sessions from speakers such as futurist Sophie Hackford; Professor Paul Dolan from LSE; Dr Mary Aiken, author of The Cyber Effect; writer Ian Leslie, and brand coach Jon Goldstone to name a few.

On July 3rd at Six Storeys in Soho we'll be holding the first stand-alone Magnetic Stories event, curated and hosted by Faris and Rosie Yakob from Genius Steals, and centre on the big questions of Attention in an Attention Deficit economy.

We’ll kick things off with a thought-provoking talk from Faris, followed by questions and a discussion with Jason Gonsalves, previously CSO at BBH, and CEO of McGarrybowen, now leading the much-anticipated relaunch of The Face.

It’s an invite-only event with 40 places, as we want to keep it intimate and hopefully discursive.
