The Oystercatchers Club was created as a place for clients and agencies to share ideas together and, what began around a kitchen table in 2011, has grown into one of the industry’s leading forums for marketing leaders to discuss current topics, share ideas and inspiration, and connect with their peers.

Our Club community is made up of dynamic leaders from the marketing industry, and our members recognise the value of sharing their experiences and views, and networking and learning from their industry cohort, to inspire them and their teams to push the industry and their brands forwards.

Our panels feature brand CMO’s and CEOs, agency leaders and inspirational speakers outside the industry from film directors to sports personalities.

Our Club events are attended by marketing leaders from brands including Virgin, EY, Diageo, ASOS, Just Eat, Debenhams, Deliveroo, Pret a Manger, Kingfisher, Mondelez, Macmillan Cancer Support, Molton Brown, Bayer, BT, Red Bull, Unilever, Hiscox, Tesco, KFC, McDonald’s, IBM, CNBC, Savills, The Crown Estate, ECB, Ovo Energy, Worldpay, Samsung, UKTV, Lidl, the BBC and Merlin Entertainment.

Membership is complimentary for brand side marketers, but is by invitation only, and is open to senior marketers.
