ThinkTV is proud to announce that four of Australia’s most influential marketers will join and contribute to the changing conversation about today’s TV at the November 30 ReThinkTV launch event at Doltone House, Sydney.

Telstra chief marketing officer and group executive media, Joe Pollard will join Richard Oppy, marketing director of Carlton & United Breweries, Hugo Schreuder, group CMO of Youi Insurance, and Tim Fung, CEO and co-founder of Airtasker, to discuss using TV to grow their brands.

“The marketing panel promises to be a highlight of ReThinkTV. No discussion about TV’s power to build and grow brands could be complete without the voice of advertisers themselves. I am delighted that Joe, Richard, Hugo and Tim have agreed share their knowledge and experience about how TV drives business growth,” said ThinkTV chief executive Kim Portrate.

“Our mission is to help advertisers and their agencies get the very best out of today’s TV and our panel is designed to provide some powerful, real-life examples of where companies have just done that from some of Australia’s pre-eminent marketing brains.

“TV has something to offer every advertiser: whether they are corporate titans or successful disrupters.”

Joe Pollard became Telstra’s chief marketing officer and group executive, media, in October 2015 after serving as group managing director marketing and media.

His career at CUB spans 14 years and he has a strong track record of translating strategy into action to deliver results.
