Alongside working with animals and children, as anyone in entertainment will tell you, ‘ask anything’ live formats are a little risky. Sometimes people are shy and don’t ask questions. Sometimes the questions are odd, outrageous and incriminating. Sometimes the guest gets cagey and starts worrying that they might be about to be sentt their P45.

But when you have Rory Sutherland at the helm for ‘Ask Rory Anything’, you can feel safe in the knowledge that you’ve got all the elements needed for an entertaining discussion across a broad range of topics.

From how marketers can influence key strategic business decisions and the most out-there advertising ideas that got the green light to Rory’s fantasy dinner party line-up, marketers from across the globe tuned-in pitched up and put their burning questions to Rory in our special live webcast this week to mark the launch of MAD//Masters By Rory Sutherland.

Kicking off on 17 May, MAD//Masters is a new 12 week hybrid learning and development programme for marketers who want to turn disruption into competitive advantage by leveraging creativity, innovation and behavioural science. Learning alongside Rory, over the duration of the course, participants will discover new perspectives, ideas and emerging trends to apply to their campaigns, strategy and career moves.

If you missed it, the good news is that you can watch all the action now on YouTube:
