Brands may rest in the hearts and minds of us all – that is where their power and value lie – but how can strong emotional connections be forged and, when they are, what is the business effect? David Golding of adam&eveDDB will use the IPA Effectiveness Award winning John Lewis’ Christmas advertising as the starting point to discuss how emotional engagement can be achieved, the role and performance of different media, the potential impact on sales and profit and the importance of evaluation. There will be an opportunity for discussion afterwards.

The evening will include after-hours access to the Museum's Time Tunnel, Branding Hall and temporary displays as well as offering the opportunity to network over drinks.

This event is being held in partnership with the British Brands Group and in collaboration with the IPA and Thinkbox. A Museums at Night event.

adam&eveDDB currently tops the GUNN Report as the most creatively awarded agency in the world and the WARC report as the most effective agency in the world.
