Mars' Mitch Oliver on our Braver Conference 


Ahead of our LONDON BRAVER CONFERENCE we caught up with Marketing Society board member, Mars' Mitch Oliver, to get her thoughts on why it's worth attending.

Not another conference invitation. .. you know what it’s like. The run up to Xmas is manic and the last thing you need is to take a day out to attend a conference. 

That’s what I thought. I was wrong.

I had my arm twisted to attend the Marketing Society's Brave Conference last year. "You won’t regret it", I was told. In for a penny, in for a pound I decided to bring my leadership team with me. Best decision. Ever! 

We turned it into a team build. The day was jam packed with unique speakers, unexpected insights, laughter and tears. This is like no other marketing conference. It’s at a higher level... the content is surprising and diverse and makes your heart beat faster... and makes you actually think. How little time we have in our roles these days to get perspective and provocation and take time to think! 

It really was a bonding experience and the start of a very special journey for us as a team and our department. 

After a brilliant evening at the conference dinner together with some more unexpected and incredible entertainment we decided to make the Brave agenda that we had been inspired by at the conference, our departments’ agenda for the following year. 

The results speak for themselves. We’ve been braver than ever before - in advertising, in digital and most importantly, in being ourselves at work. It’s been more fun and more successful.. 2018 is on track to will be our most successful year in many.

And it all started with the TMS Braver Conference.

Go - take your team - you won’t regret it!
