Last month’s MAD//Fest was our biggest ever with content across six stages, over three-days. So it was impossible to see every great brand marketer treading the festival’s boards and providing those key insights on how you should ride the storm of economic disruption. However, you can now watch all the major advertisers, challenger brands, agency A-listers, tech start-ups, entrepreneurs + celebs share their challenges, opportunities and shopping lists on our very own YouTube channel

Therefore, this week we are continuing helping you to navigate the breadth of sessions now available to you on our channel by choosing three great sessions, (one from each day), from our Creativity + Experience Stage sponsored by DEPT®

Day One, 4 July - eBay and Love Island: an unlikely couple

This week, (apparently), saw Sammy Root and Jess Harding win this year’s Love Island. Now for those MAD//Fest’ers who are already having Love Island withdrawal symptoms, fear not, as you can watch this session from last month’s MAD//Fest on how eBay and Love Island got together, last year, to form an unlikely relationship. Joanna Trippett, UK MD for DEPT® chats with eBay’s Brand Director, Alex Allcott, to find out how their relationship is going from strength to strength and how eBay has put pre-loved, planet-friendly fashion at the forefront of Gen Z.

Day Two, 5 July - Coca-Cola on how to be distinctive

Rebecca McCowan, Design & Marketing Manager, Coca-Cola, Europe and JKR’s Lee Rolston talk us though marketing’s identity crisis and argue that the solution lies in being distinctive. Watch as they discuss the importance of being distinctive across the entire brand experience and how creative brand building and real life experiences can reap many rewards
