We all know we're living in a period of massive, accelerating change. Yet how we think, how we work and what we produce as an advertising industry has changed remarkably little. This talk at the ICA in Toronto is a (hopefully practical) call for the industry to reclaim its progressive, and truly radical, roots.

  • arthurascii Brian Millar, Director of Strategy at Sense Worldwide Jeremy Bullmore once told me that they gave away the idea for Mr Kipling to the client. Who then made them pitch for the advertising.

    It's great to see agencies start to make things for themselves, like Mother and inventioni.st

    Very nice compilation of some old and new thinking! Can you please provide a synopsis of the voice over on slides 86-89? I would love to hear some examples or ideas on how agencies can perform 'Communcations R&D' and 'build a culture of experimentation.'

  • scenariodna Tim Stock, Managing Partner - scenarioDNA at Tim Stock thanks for an inspiring piece gareth. great stuff. it is very in sync with the talk i gave at sxsw. it brings to mind a recent 60 minute interview with Chrysler/Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne http://cbsn.ws/HxqZud. the problem is an old hierarch and /process baked into too many corporations. the provenance of brands becomes an excuse to stifle radical thinking. brands miss the poetry we have the resources and mechanisms to put into motion. brands have resources people don't on their own- they waste that advantage. cynical (looking back) communication wins over incremental natural cultural movements - and we waste huge amounts of money convinced the answer still rests with testing and tweaking the message as it misses or quickly loses relevance. 2 years ago

  • NeilRobert21 Neil Saunders, Director of Brand Strategy at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners Great presentation Gareth. Ideas don't come to people who aren't looking for them. We need to be comfortable living in the questions and the 'neutral zone' of this transitional period. Thanks. 2 years ago
