From here to there, marketing event

Event building in North Greenwich, London
Magazine London

I was invited to attend the Mailchimp: From here to there event at Magazine London on June 13th. It was an inspiring day, packed with valuable insights from some of the brightest minds in marketing, AI, and e-commerce.

The event attracted hundreds of industry peers eager to explore the future of marketing. The atmosphere and anticipation of the speakers grew with what we were to learn from a world-class lineup of thought leaders.

One of the morning speakers was Mo Gawdat, former Chief Business Officer of Google [X], international bestselling author (Scary Smart is a great book), and Chief AI Officer of Flight Story. Mo’s talk on how AI can improve work-life balance, stress management and resilience to make us happier humans and better marketers was both enlightening and thought-provoking.

One of the most anticipated sessions was a fireside chat featuring marketing legend Rory Sutherland, Vice Chairman of Ogilvy and Steven Bartlett. Their discussion on navigating the complexities of modern marketing was both insightful and entertaining. Their ability to think outside the box and challenge conventional wisdom left a lasting impression on me.

Another highlight was the afternoon session that delved into the impact of AI on our lives, it featured Ameca, the AI humanoid, who engaged in a fascinating Q&A with Katherine Ryan, the comedian who also hosted the event. Ameca’s responses were sometimes slightly delayed but showed the potential future interactions between humans and AI.

Starting my day at 4:30am to travel to London was absolutely worth it. The hosts were amazing and made everyone feel special, with Katherine Ryan adding humour throughout the day. I was initially worried about sitting in the front row, but she picked on somebody, thankfully. Seeing Rory Sutherland and Steven Bartlett, two of my favourites, in person was a highlight, and Mo Gawdat’s talk about AI and happiness was truly inspiring.

Attending the event was a reminder of how important it is to stay updated with the latest trends and techniques in digital marketing. The insights gained will influence my approach to graphic design, ensuring that my clients receive the best possible service. The event also highlighted the importance of incorporating AI and innovative strategies in marketing, something I am excited to integrate into my own work.
