What does the future hold for international media?

We hear from an ad-tech leader who oversaw a merger and all the upskilling and customer comms that accompanied it while everyone was remote working, an agency leader who helped win 13 new clients and grow year-on-year revenue by 82% in a year of disruption, and a client leader who drove digital marketing transformation whilst championing responsible media spending and better advertising representation. They share some of their lessons on how to manage people and get things done, and there are tips on winning pitches and where to go for that much-anticipated post-lock down lunch. Winner to be revealed after the panel.
