Jack Morton's Tim Leighton presented with Cecilia Dahlstrom from Ericsson at the eurobest Festival of Creativity 2015.
How do you challenge and break the way something has always been done?
As an industry, we have to evolve our methods of engagement to survive. A little more conversation and a lot less one-way show and tell.
Yet much of our creative still isn’t focused in this way. In fact, some of our brand engagements are strangely inhuman, inhospitable experiences whereby brands compete not to understand people and offer value, but to simply shout the loudest. One of the worst offenders has to be the trade show. It’s a rare opportunity to waste – it’s where game-changing conversations can happen and multi-million dollar deals can be sealed.
Join our session to find out how Ericsson embraced the trade show, tore up the rule book and created a thoroughly modern brand experience that sits at the centre of its marketing strategy. Hear how its innovative creative approach radically changed the way people connect in this environment and learn what we can take away from this when we approach engaging with people through any channel.
