We're delighted to announce our guest speaker this year is Craig Inglis, Partner and Customer Director at John Lewis. Craig will build on The Marketing Society Brave agenda and how this relates to the challenges he faces in his new role at John Lewis - espeically in the run up to the all important festive season. He will also award our new Fellows and Honorary Fellows for 2018 before presenting our Employer Brand of the Year awards.
We're also looking forward to our after-dinner entertainment, Nina Conti.
