Mr. Goodvertising – Challenging advertising-as-usual
The Sync Hub is all about stories. It is a place to share stories about people, ideas and projects that are challenging the ‘business as usual’ paradigm. Thomas Kolster is one of these people and we are really happy to be hosting him in Malta. This will create a platform for an interesting discussion. As a regular speaker at various Sustainable Brands conferences, he certainly has a few stories to share, and has his finger on the pulse of the sustainability movement.
As part of our new SyncedIn Speaker Series, on the 22nd of October Thomas will talk about ‘advertising as a force for good’.
We’ll talk about how the current business context is challenging advertising-as-usual and calls for an upgrade in the way we collaborate, communicate and engage.
