The Marketing Society Annual Conference 2022 | Changemakers Ignite

Last remaining tickets available - book now

QEII Conference Centre, 2 November, 8:30am to 5pm

Changemakers Ignite.

At The Marketing Society, bringing people together to listen and learn is part of our DNA and the Annual Conference is the very embodiment of that. 

Marketers drive change. And so much needs to be done to keep our companies and the customers and communities around us strong. Hear stories from the fire-starters and the motivation inspirers who create the sparks that turn into revolutionary engines of growth – the changemakers who unite and ignite.

A powerful day of inspiration, ideas and energy from entrepreneurs, creatives, marketing leaders and pioneers that will set you and your team's potential alight and remind you what good marketing can achieve.


Our host this year is acclaimed broadcaster from BBC News, the fantastic Mishal Husain who will expertly guide you through the day introducing, probing and interviewing our exceptional speaker line up. View the full programme here.


It’s going to be one extraordinary day. Here is what being a changemaker means to some of our speakers;

"It’s about owning the future impact you want to create. Once you know that, you can systematically unblock obstacles and challenges that you need to overcome. Hunger for outside thinking, inspiration and an ability to join dots in new and interesting ways allow you to unlock new ways forward. Finally, action is fundamental - be a maker - unleash your thinking into the world, create momentum and make your impact felt."

Scott Morrison, Founder, The Boom!

"A changemaker for me is someone who sees a problem, is motivated by empathy for people affected, and can bring lots of people together to unite behind the change that needs to take place. I see this every day in each of our food banks. Food banks are run by people who see hunger and poverty in their communities, are motivated by compassion and a desire for justice, and then bring people together to take action and bring about change. For me, they are the ultimate changemakers!"

Emma Revie, Chief Executive, The Trussell Trust

"It means - metaphorically - standing up when something needs to be done, rather than sitting down and hoping that someone else stands up."

And if that hasn’t whet your appetite, here’s what delegates from last year’s conference had to say:

"The Marketing Society Conference has shown once again that it really is the unmissable event of the year"

Inspiring, challenging, emotional (that standing ovation!) all in one day”. 

I feel privileged to have attended. Really inspiring speakers, great conversations had.” 

I genuinely left feeling I could (and should) change the world for the better, that something large or small I could do might make a difference.”
