IGNITE 2023: Building breakthrough brands | Virtual

Hear about differentiation, marketing leadership and breakthrough brands.

4 October, 11am to 1pm

Join The Marketing Society and Kantar virtually, for IGNITE 2023: Building Breakthrough Brands, where we bring together an exclusive lineup of Kantar experts alongside marketing luminaries.

What we'll cover:

  • Defending differentiation: Mark Ritson, Columnist & former professor, PhD Marketing
    Once upon a time brands were warned to “differentiate or die”. Then the Ehrenberg Bass Institute swung the marketing pendulum wildly from one extreme to the other arguing ‘meaningless distinctiveness’ was the key. Mark disagrees. In this session, he challenges this thinking and explores how differentiation is a legitimate, incredibly valuable branding prerogative.

  • Panel discussion: What breakthrough brands do differently in practice
    Join Sophie Devonshire, CEO The Marketing Society, Mark Ritson and Rebecca Dibb-Simkin, Chief Marketing and Product Officer, Octopus Energy Group and hear how building breakthrough brands requires more than just theory. In this no-nonsense panel, you’ll hear exactly what it takes in practice to convert data and insights into breakthrough growth from those who’ve been there. Expect the unexpected!

  • Kantar BrandZ Most Valuable UK Brands 2023: Martin Guerrieria, Head of Kantar BrandZ, and Adele Jolliffe, Head of Brand Consultants, Kantar
    Join us as we reveal the results of the Kantar BrandZ Most Valuable UK Brands! You’ll get an exclusive deep-dive from Martin and Adele into how the Global and UK’s Top 75 brands’ values changed in 2023 – and what this means for growth hungry businesses seeking to drive breakthrough growth in 2024.
