MAD Week is bringing the Inside Series, B&T's specialist newsletter series on digital, media, creativity and marketing to life, with inspiring international and local thinkers.
Highlights of the day include a keynote from Uwe Hook, group digital director OMD Worldwide, a panel discussion on the future of TV led by Ten's Russel Howcroft, and a unique creative Tech Crunch curated by Naked's Adam Ferrier.
Headlining the day is BatesHook founder and CEO Uwe Hook, a man uniquely poised at the intersection of creativity and data. He will be addressing this elephant in the room, looking at the interaction of these two seemingly incompatible disciplines.
He is responsible for leading the digital and activation for the global Visa account at the most creative global network (2012 Gunn Report) and has a history of creative direction at firms including Mercedes Benz, IBM and Deutsche Telekom.
The program splits into four dedicated streams across the morning and afternoon, based on the popular Inside Series newsletters.
