One of MAD//Fest’s many New Year’s resolutions, alongside this year’s festival being the best yet, is to ensure that our weekly newsletter features diverse voices, fantastic opinion pieces and discussion of the issues that matter most to the marketing community. 

Therefore, we have recruited a few of the great and the good to be regular contributors and columnists for the MAD//Fest newsletter. During a time of seismic and exciting change, each week they’ll provide you with their distinctive views and unique perspectives on the industry we all love.
