“Rory is an incredible raconteur and a one-off when it comes to making sense of a much-changed world and what's needed to adapt, survive and thrive. We could all do with some clarity right now and Rory will bring his trademark offbeat observations, humour and strategic thinking to the DMEXCO@home masses," said Dan Brain, MAD//Fest London’s Co-founder.

“Rory and Soco are a powerful combo if you want to know how to adapt and gain an edge as the dust settles from the pandemic,” he added.
