Cracking creativity, Wednesday 7th June

At its best, advertising is a welcome guest in our lives. Creativity is the gift that earns its welcome.

But there's growing evidence that creativity is increasingly elusive. There’s still lots of great work being made, but there could be more, more often. And, as creativity is one of the most powerful drivers of advertising effectiveness, it’s in everyone’s interests to keep standards as high as possible.

‘Cracking creativity’ will take place on Wednesday 7th June at the Ham Yard Hotel, London from 9.30am - 12.30pm. It will unveil three new studies of advertising creativity.
