At the Festival of Marketing Oystercatchers are running a series of sessions on leadership. On day one, we are focussing on the CMO.

Our session has a stellar-line up of game-changers who promise to share their very own personal experiences; challenges they’ve met along their journeys of transformation; the highs along with the lows.

The morning is closed-doors, Chatham House rules, no press. It’s for client leaders only – a unique opportunity for frank, constructive, confidential conversation.

Please email if you'd like to attend.
