Bend, don’t break.

The future of advertising is changing at a rapid rate, with or without you. If you don’t bend, you’ll break. When under pressure you need to be malleable like clay and ready to adapt to the quickly progressing world. Our speakers will challenge you to think beyond what you know and encourage you to start reshaping.
