'Engaging your audience with a dynamic brand'

12.10.2017 / Eyes & Ears Summit, München
Eyes & Ears of Europe

How are you future-proofing your brand’s relevance? How will you retain and grow your target audience?

We live in a time where the smallest brands can out-manoeuvre and out-smart the biggest companies in the world. Being big doesn’t guarantee safety like it used to. Today, it’s all about being agile, responsive and adaptable. It’s about engaging with a more dynamic and younger audience. And the only way to do it is with a dynamic brand.

But where do you start? At a time where there is such focus on the bottom line, we think the opportunity to meet and listen to industry thought-leaders and peers is vital.

Join Eyes & Ears of Europe for an event with dynamic brand pioneers Lambie-Nairn in Munich. A day of lively discussion and networking opportunities with leaders from TV, [Online] Content Marketing, Brand Strategy, Design Thinking and Business Transformation.

Topic highlights include:

  • Start-ups vs. grown-ups: What can large, established brands learn from start-ups? With years of experience in senior marketing positions at Absolute Vodka and LEGO, Franz Drack helps companies with design thinking, strategy and brand experience design
  • Strategic Planning: How leading mass media company ProSiebenSat.1 are developing multiplatform storytelling and successful, customer-focussed brand communications
  • Going viral: How RTL II combined the best of online gaming, TV and social influencers for a campaign that surpassed all expectations

We look forward to welcoming you with our partner hosts, Lambie-Nairn, at: Dayloft, Zündappbogen 13, 81671 Munich on the 12th October.

This Eyes & Ears Summit is aimed primarily at people working in marketing, brand management, design, media and communications who want to find out more about this topic.

The seminar language will be English. There will be plenty of opportunity to chat in either German or English in-between presentations.

Dynamic audiences – dynamic brands? What young audiences want

Public broadcasters need to connect with young audiences – a tough challenge, now more than ever: fast changing consumption habits and tastes, a polymorphic digital environment, increasing competition. So what do you need to succeed? New technology? Personalisation? Or maybe something else? Rising to the challenge, SRF (Swiss Radio and Television) has created a specialised department headed by Stefano Semeria, who will share his key insights and learnings.

Strategic Planning – an absolute must for successful, future-oriented communication

Strategic Planning is a must for every big, international advertising agency – using the audience perspective to validate branding and communications, and ensuring real relevance in the target market. More than that, if applied in the early development stages of new products, formats or brand extensions, Strategic Planning can predict future success or necessary adjustments.

How to use wit and creativity to create emotional connections

ARTE is Europe’s leading culture channel, broadcasting a diverse range of content. However, it was often perceived as niche, intellectual and “high brow”.

Smart disruption at scale

Can big, established brands really learn from start-ups and apply their ingredients for success?
