She said: “As the media ecosystem continues to evolve, organisations wanting to connect with consumers have to navigate an overwhelming number of channels, formats and technologies. oOh! continues to invest in data, audience insights, content and creative to ensure our advertising partners in regional communities such as Newcastle, have a better understanding of their consumers, how to effectively target them and deliver a stronger return on marketing investment.

“Having worked in media and advertising for more than 30 years I’m looking forward to offering my insights on today’s complex media environment with the Newcastle Business Club and give an overview on the direction the industry is heading and showcasing why Out of Home is an effective and adaptable medium that can work for businesses of any size.”
