Elsewhere on the agenda, Sir John Hegarty, BBH London founder, will sit down with Neil Waller, chairman and CEO of Whalar to discuss the democratisation of creativity thanks to recent technological advances.

The event is an essential date for those working in the creative industries and will see brands such as Facebook, Vice, BBC, New Balance and more appear to discuss their strategies. As for agencies, McCann, AnalogFolk, Mr President, Isobar, We Are Social and many more will appear.

In addition to the speaker sessions, Connect: London will offer an Exhibition Zone and Portfolio and Career Advice for even more engagement across themes with companies such as Crunch, Hidden, Picfair and Illustration all taking part.
