Roundtable hosted by Ipsos CEO Ben Page

With Josy Paul (BBDO) and Lindsay Franke (Ipsos)

The world isn’t in crisis. The world is in crises: an economic crisis, growing geopolitical tensions, climate change. The only thing that seems certain is uncertainty. This polycrisis context must be recognised by brand builders to be able to address shifting citizens and consumers needs.

Ipsos research evidenced that three key factors have become more important for brands to surf the polycrisis wave: starting with empathy, shaping expectations, taking the macro and micro contexts into account to drive creative, brand and global success.

Ben Page and Lindsay Franke are joined by Josy Paul from BBDO, to discuss about Ariel and Whisper campaigns and other recent best-in-class examples, demonstrating how empathy, context and expectations are essential to effective creativity.
