What my Mum can teach brands about digital Digital is an amazingly powerful, influential all-encompassing channel... however too many brands approach it with a focus of what they want people to do rather than what people want to do. While many experts will claim the masses have no idea what they want, Rob will explain how his 78 year old Mum knows differently and that her ideas can help brands infiltrate societies lives, not just their digital media habits.

Rob is from Nottingham. That is why he swears a lot, has a terrible dress sense, loves bad food and supports a team that's a football embarrassment. He started his career as a session guitarist for some of the 80's worst pop-stars before somehow falling into a series of great jobs at great companies until he decided to start his own creative strategy company called Cynic. Within 12 months they had offices in the UK, US & Australia and worked on projects as diverse as designing interiors for jumbo jets and developing none-harmful weaponry while fitting in award winning campaigns for Virgin, Mini and IKEA.

Despite never wearing shoes and shouting his mouth off too freely at @RobertC1970, he has managed to live in the UK, US, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and China where he currently spends his days working with a bunch of talented people on brilliant brands like Nike, Converse, Old Spice, Fiat and Levis and his nights annoying his wife and cat with his love of ridiculous gadgetry. Rob is the Founder of homeless charity Human_2, co-runs the Global Advertising Planning School on the web and is very, very pro-East.

Liquid and Linked Idea The Coca-Cola Company has established a strategic approach for marketing communications called "Liquid and Linked". This strategy places a new emphasis on dynamic storytelling to connect with people across multiple connection points. These stories must be focused for each particular medium, whether it's paid communication on TV or mobile, earned media on social networks, owned media channels like packaging and equipment or shared media in store. Engagement through one medium will entice people to another with a deeper, richer experience and an invitation to interact and co-create. Long gone are the days of flat, one-way communication. It's a multi-dimensional world.

Welcome to the Invention Economy Culture has caught up to the tools technology has brought us. Our parents are texting, we're finding love online, buying fancy TVs through the internet, tweeting strangers how our last date went, reading books to our kids through Skype, watching television and movies through the internet, and so many other things that seemed a little strange just a few years ago. Already in the last 20 years we've seen amazing inventions, but years from now we'll look back and say this was the moment that digital technology went from being a novelty in our lives, to being the foundation for how we live. How can brands, agencies, and media properties succeed in this new economy?

Trends, Fads & Transformation: The Impact of the Internet Drawing on ten years of data and insights from a worldwide study in 30 countries, Jeffrey Cole, Director of the USC Annenberg Center for the Digital Future, will separate myth from reality as he describes how the Internet and mobile technology are changing the fabric of daily life. Which of the traditional media will survive the digital challenge and thrive in a digital environment and which will disappear? Is the web a continual threat to television, or can the two live and work together? How will advertising evolve in a digital era? What opportunities are presented by social networking, and what is a "friend" of a brand really worth? How do brands and agencies absorb all the data, insights and noise around them to learn from best practices and avoid mistakes? The presentation will examine the trends and developments that are likely to occur in the next two to three years.
