Overview

PR Professionals often find themselves at the heart of some of the most creative and strategic campaigns in the market, but often don't get the recognition for their contribution. Join PRWeek’s Supercharge your creativity breakfast briefing where we will be celebrating, exploring and analysing some of the best creative case studies from the past 12 months.

We will be looking at how we can foster more creativity in comms teams, discussing the types of creativity and which should lead our strategy and rethinking how we view creativity as an industry.

    Key themes set to be discussed include:
  • The creative process: Exploring the journey from creative idea to execution and how this can be optimised
  • Comms teams: How to recruit, maintain and motivate creative teams
  • Creative strategy: Implementing creativity as long-term strategy to build a brand and amplify its message
