What's on

The Work Behind The Work
Warts and all stories behind three big campaigns by the people who developed them.  Pick the brains of the planners, account people and creatives involved.  What was the strategic leap?  Did it end up as they first conceived it?  Was the client always on board?  A great evening and a privileged view behind the velvet curtain.

Cannes Download
A week after the event...not just the main winners but the interesting outliers from the newly slimmed down Cannes provided with pithy commentary to make you look at the work in a new light.  Hosted in comfort in a cinema.

Managing Your Brand
A casual evening with a master of managing his own brand, Anthony Hourigan. Listen (carefully!) to his hints and tips and learn the art of networking from the master himself.
