The agenda 

Our aim is to provide a forum to consider the biggest challenges and opportunities for the sector as whole with Brexit as the backdrop.

To do this, we are assembling a stellar cast of presenters and panellists, who will help us address seven core questions.

What is the economic outlook and how should this affect our planning?

How are leading companies (media owner, agency and brand) looking at their strategy in light of Brexit? What changes are they making to prepare and what can we all learn from them?

Leaving aside the rest of the world, what can we do to make the most of the opportunity for domestic growth across the UK?

At a time when pressure is growing on businesses to justify every bit of spend, are we properly confronting the difficult issues facing the sector – from transparency to measurement? How is advertising currently seen in the boardroom?

How can we continue to attract and develop the right talent to remain a truly global hub for advertising? How may Brexit affect our ability to keep the flow of international talent that helps to make London and the UK such a successful global centre?

Is advertising delivering adequately for the world’s biggest brands? How is the landscape changing and how do we need to adapt to respond?

“The Advertising Association is important not only because it promotes the value of what we do, but also because it creates the space through events like LEAD – for us to put aside competitive instincts (briefly) and ensure that the currency we all trade in remains strong.”
