Interested in marketing strategy? Come on out to Planners Unite - the (hopefully) first in a regular series of events for the strategic planning community in Toronto. It will be equal parts socializing and inspiration, with some great guest speakers to provoke ideas and discussion. There will be conversation breaks between speakers, and a cocktail reception afterwards.
Our Keynote is Mark Earls (AKA Herdmeister). His latest book, “HERD” has won much applause. Mark is a recovering account planner who now works independently out of London under the banner of HERD Consulting. Prior to HERD, Mark was Chair of the Global Planning Group at Ogilvy Worldwide and Planning Director of the radical creative co-operative St Luke’s.
The other speakers:
- Laurence Bernstein: Innovating market research using behavioural economics, the wisdom of crowds, and predictive markets.
- Matthew Milan and Michael Anton Dila: Innovation Parkour: a new method to find innovative answers to complex strategic problems.
- Sean Howard: The Passion Economy
- Jason Oke: Event chair & moderator
