Live discussion on social media with BBC Sport
Nobody knows social media better than young people - but why are big brands not consulting YOU on what YOU know best? Especially when all their corporate suits are getting it oh so wrong… I mean, have you seen a forty-something white male try to write a tweet aimed at a young audience? Painful.
That’s why we’ve invited BBC Sport to join us on the main stage and share all their biggest social-media related problems. We’ll then open the floor to the real masters of The Gram, Twitter, Snap, and all things social who will help solve BBC’s issues with innovative ideas solutions - a board of young creatives like you!
There will also be a post-discussion session where you can join in too and meet the team behind BBC Sport.
1.30pm - 2.10pm
Live discussion ON trends & culture with Havas
Who could be more up to date on trends and culture than the generation that’s changing and developing the creative scene every day! But how much of your styles and interests are actually reflected in big business?
There’s clearly a gaping hole in the industry that needs to be filled ASAP by none other than those who live and breathe all things trendy, cultural, and creative. We’ve got a panel of young creatives to take the stage and help award-winning, major marketing and advertising giant Havas with all their stylistic problems and prove, once again, that nobody knows the modern market better than young people.
Stay on for a session where you can meet with the Havas team and share your thoughts and ideas.
3PM - 3.40PM
LIVE DISCUSSION ON INNOVATION WITH UNIVERSAL MUSIC
Unless you live in a cave, you’ll know that Universal Music is one of the biggest players in the game. This media giant churns out award-winning content faster than , but even they need help from the very people who will be the future of the music media industry.
In a constantly changing world, innovation is a crucial part of getting business right - without good ideas coming in on a daily, the industry will go nowhere. Our panel of young people will be helping to solve Universal’s issues surrounding Innovation, sharing their much needed thoughts and ideas on a topic that they - and you - know all about.
Like before, you’ll get the chance to meet with the people from Universal post-discussion.
