Marketing Week’s Festival of Marketing to return in October

Dragons’ Den star Deborah Meaden is confirmed for the 11th  Festival of Marketing. She will join CMOs and other speakers from the world of marketing and beyond on 3 October.

After last year’s sell-out event, Marketing Week’s Festival of Marketing is set to return in October, giving marketers the opportunity to learn, grow and network with the best and brightest in the industry.

Taking place at The Brewery in London on 3 October, the festival will be headlined by renowned entrepreneur, investor, sustainable business advocate and star of Dragons’ Den, Deborah Meaden, who will offer her inimitable view on how businesses should approach growth and the part marketers can play.

Russell Parsons, editor-in-chief of Marketing Week and Festival of Marketing, says: “The theme of this year’s Festival of Marketing is transformation. To remind marketers after a challenging few years they can make a difference, as well as help enable them to transform their brands and career.

“Deborah, and the rest of our fantastic speaker line up, are set to inspire and offer insight that will help marketers do their jobs better.”

Other notable top marketers speaking at the event include Greggs’ customer and marketing director Hannah Squirrell, who will tell the bakery chain’s growth story and ambitions, Helen Tupper, co-host of the hugely successful Squiggly Careers podcast, who will talk about career management, and Luke Boase, the founder of Lucky Saint, who will talk about redefining categories.

More speakers will be announced alongside more on stages and subjects over the coming weeks.

More than 50 content sessions with over 90 speakers will take place on six content stages that will tackle the big opportunities and challenges. Stages will cover effectiveness, trends, skills, career, customer delivery, and business growth with one dedicated to B2B.

Elsewhere, delegates can enjoy interactive masterclasses and an opportunity to quiz speakers in “ask me anything” sessions.

Passes are expected to go quickly. For more information and to buy tickets go to the Festival site.
