Permission Denied: Keynote with Patrick Collister

Where: Foot Anstey, 2 Glass Wharf, BS2 0FR

When: 17 September 2019 12:30pm to 2:15pm

It was over 20 years ago, that Seth Godin wrote “Permission Marketing”. Having high hopes for advertising, he suggested that the digital revolution would make advertising personal and relevant and thus anticipated and welcome. 

But it didn’t quite work out that way... 

Not only do people dislike advertising (a billion ad-blockers have been installed on devices around the world) they dislike the advertising profession too. Advertising people in the UK have been said to rank below politicians. Facebook and Cambridge Analytica, Google and Brand Safety, the new tech giants have had a disastrous effect on how advertising is both made and seen.  

Despite all this, advertising can still help sell products and grow brands. BUT there are new rules. 

About the keynote: 

We're excited host this Vision Keynote ‘Permission Denied’ with Patrick Collister where he will apologise for the cliché (new rules) but will explain how it gives a framework for understanding the five conditions brands must meet if they want to get through to people. 

He’ll talk about ideas a lot, use the word creativity quite often, and may even try to sell you his book, “How To Use Innovation & Creativity In Business.”
