Session: Disruption – Buzzword or Buzzworthy
With “disruption” touted to be the new normal, brands are all clamoring to be the square peg in the round hole; the Steve Jobs of the promo world; the Black Panther of content creation.
But, disruption without purpose- clever disruption, discerning disruption- is just more noise.
With limited budgets, rapidly growing viewing alternatives and more elusive audiences, how do we get our voice heard above the cacophony of “pick me’s”? Or more fittingly, where do we boldly go that no one else dares?
The rules: innovate, explore, take risks and be the creatives you’ve always wanted to be.
