Those big agencies continue to buy up the little guys, whether that is digital production houses, mobile application specialists, or social media outfits. And those smaller independent firms compete not on size, but on innovation. Scalable and adaptable according to project need, these organisation are value led and highly networked. Meanwhile London’s never ending array of co-working spaces, accelerators, incubators, and innovation labs, are becoming increasingly blurred as they dance about in this incestuous space.
Join us for breakfast and hear first hand from leaders as they share insights into the changing face of work..

She is passionate about digital media startups and with a background and track record working in BBC Worldwides’ channels, she has facilitated several partnerships with big brands.

Sam is one of the pioneers of working in a ‘connected’ new way. For years, he has challenged the traditional agency model by drawing on an array of talent on a needs basis – in order to achieve richer and more culturally tuned results. These principles rooted in croudsourcing, combine unrivalled creativity with the complimenting ability to evolve to meet new challenges. Sam has put this way of working to the test with clients such as The Barbican, Diesel, and Westfield. He developed Tapestry, a mobile application to help link online and offline shopping experiences and is currently a Partner at The Upside, a networked agency branding itself as an ‘innovation plug-in’.
