Watch our event ‘TV Creativity: hearts, minds and magic’ on demand

Fresh neuroscience research, a rock star panel of some of the UK’s best advertising directors, major advertisers all in one place to explore the power of TV advertising creativity.  

Creativity is the magic ingredient at the heart of TV advertising’s power.  Delivered at scale, it’s the biggest lever you can pull to drive advertising effectiveness. It makes brands famous, gets them talked about and boosts campaign efficiency tenfold. But what separates great advertising from good? What can clients, agencies and directors do to get the very best work onto screens everywhere: to create TV ads that grip the nation? 

At this event, we unveiled new research from Neuro-insight UK that explored the link between elements of creative treatments and long-term memory encoding. We also took a look at the link between creativity and effectiveness in the company of senior marketers who have been responsible for commissioning some of the best ads we’ve seen on TV over the last few years. And Jason Stone of David Reviews, gathered a fresh cast of top ad directors.
