This year’s annual Epica Awards Creative Circle conference is all about Brand Building In A Challenging World. It will ask, “In a time of economic, political and technological disruption, can today’s innovators and creative leaders help build a better future?”
To facilitate the conversation, Epica has created a partnership with One Young World: The Global Forum for Young Leaders. In its own words, the forum “identifies, promotes and connects the world’s most impactful young leaders to create a better world, with more responsible, more effective leadership.”
At the Creative Circle, these young leaders will join brand owners, agencies and the media at a series of round table discussions. Many companies are struggling to adapt to the pressures impacting their sectors. Legacy brands like Thomas Cook have failed. The Creative Circle conversation this year will explore solutions that can help businesses and organisations thrive and survive.
Matthew Belshaw, community relations director at One Young World, commented, “This new generation is the most informed, most educated, most connected generation in human history. At One Young World we identify, promote and connect the world’s most impactful young leaders. We are delighted to collaborate with Epica to share insights and visions between young and industry leaders and share these with the creative industry.”
Epica chief executive officer, Philippe Paget, added, “We’re excited that representatives from this incredible think tank will be joining our event. One Young World represents not only the future, but a more hopeful, thoughtful and ethical future, which is exactly the theme of this conference.”
The Creative Circle will be held at the Royal Tropical Institute (KIT) in Amsterdam on November 21.
