19 February: Alumni Lecture Series - How disruption is becoming increasingly important in marketing

30 January 2014

In honour of the 175th Anniversary, The University is holding a series of Alumni lectures which celebrate the achievements of several of our former students.

Date and time: 19 February, 6.45pm. Venue: Chiltern Hall, Marylebone Campus.

In this lecture Jeffrey Dodds (MBA 2002) Chief Marketing Officer at Virgin Media will join us to discuss ‘How disruption is becoming increasingly important in marketing’ followed by Q&A session. The challenge of 'cutting through' in today's increasingly cluttered media environment is getting harder and harder for advertisers. In this lecture Jeff explores the growing importance of creative and media disruption as a legitimate marketing method for getting ahead of the competition.
