Taking place virtually on Wednesday 9th June at 17:30-19:30 (BST), our next Oystercatchers Club event will once again feature after the Festival of Marketing's second day. 

With Capgemini reporting 79% of consumers are changing purchase preference based on products’ social or environmental impact, and Unilever’s CEO Alan Jope saying that sustainability drives growth, lowers costs, reduces risk and is an absolute magnet for young talent; our Oystercatchers Club event will focus on 'Sustainability – growth driver or simply spin?'

We see big opportunities for companies with real purpose. We see sustainability as a source of innovation and a way to grow both top and bottom lines. With consumer environmental awareness higher than ever before as an industry, is it time to double down on our efforts or are consumers convinced of our credibility – is it simply spin?

To discuss this topic, we're delighted to be welcoming to the panel: Richard Bowden, former Global Marketing Director, Unilever; Magnus Djaba, Global President, Saatchi & Saatchi; and Deborah Dolce, SVP, Group Marketing & Corporate Responsibility Director, TJX Europe.

As an industry how do we double down on our commitments to achieve net zero – and grow? The conversation will be hosted, as always, by our very own Suki Thompson. 

Our popular breakout rooms will be back ahead of the panel session to allow for extensive and all-important networking with your fellow senior industry peers. 

Please note, the event will take place under Chatham House Rules.

The Oystercatchers Club events are by invitation-only but if you're a senior brand side marketer and interested in joining us, please get in touch here.
