Webinar: Sustainable marketing - sustainability as a creative wrecking ball

Date: April 30th (2 PM CET/9 AM EST) - Duration: 60 mins and 15 mins Q&A

Sustainability has come out of the tree-hugging, do-good closet. The possibilities for brands and businesses (as well as people and planet) are fuelling a creative renaissance to make things better rather than a beauty contest based on incremental or advertised made-up differences. Learn how to expand your creative canvas and put into play environmental, health, social and other tangible, world-bettering factors that can be an earthquake under well established, but oblivious brands. Through global examples Thomas will show how brands are turning challenges into success stories where profit goes hand in hand with people and planet, but you’ll also get the clever hacks that help you create effective, yet impactful campaigns. Understand what it takes to do marketing today, or prepare your epitaph – because if you aren’t moving with us, you’re dead in the water.

The Hero Trap – screw purpose, who can you help people become?

Date: May 5th (2 PM CET/9 AM EST) - Duration: 60 mins and 15 mins Q&A

Most companies today are firmly on the social and environmental issues bandwagon like bees around a honey pot from oceans plastic to diversity. People are increasingly distrustful towards these efforts viewed as cheap marketing stunts meant to wow people into buying more. Thomas Kolster, a.k.a.

These tried and tested methodologies are all you need to unlock behaviour change at scale and sustainable growth that benefits all.
