Big Think 2017

Open your diary. Find 21 September. Block out the morning. Here’s why…

Thinkbox’s 4th annual Big Think event features speakers for whom the words expert, inspirational and challenging might have been created. This is a line-up worth a morning of anyone’s life. Come and join us at BAFTA to debate and deliberate over a few big issues affecting the industry right now.

Grand Designs

If you could transform the industry for the better, what would you do? We ask Jenny Biggam, Co-Founder of the7stars; Stuart Bowden, Global Strategy Director at MECMaxus; Andy Nairn, Founding Partner of Lucky Generals; and Michele Oliver, VP Marketing at Mars. Chaired by Thinkbox CEO, Lindsey Clay.


We asked the industry what it wanted to know about the TV’s future and it did not hold back. These burning questions will be answered by Jonathan Allan, Sales Director, Channel 4; John Litster, Managing Director, Sky Media; and Kelly Williams, Managing Director, Commercial, ITV. Chaired by Ruth Mortimer, Content Director, Centaur Media.

Got a question you’d like put to the TV sales house bosses at BAFTA? We’d love to hear it. Please pop it in an email right here.


The Missing Millions

Are brands missing a trick when it comes to targeting? Claire Enders, co-founder of Enders Analysis, explains how advertisers are missing out on millions (people and pounds).A morning you simply can’t miss. Well you can, but you might never forgive yourself if you do.

Time: 9am to 1pm
Date: Thursday 21st September
Venue:  BAFTA, 195 Piccadilly
