Marketing and Communications Forum Marketing Renaissance: What is Necessary?


We are delighted to invite you to attend The British Centre Marketing and Communications Forum. A partnership between the British Consulate-General Shanghai, the China-Britain Business Council and WPP, the Forum is a platform to convene industry experts, share market intelligence and provide an opportunity for discussion. Every quarter we will have a WPP industry expert speaking on a specific marketing/communications topic. On 28 March 2018, Sheilen Rathod, Head of Customer Engagement & Commerce, Ogilvy China will speak on  Marketing Renaissance: What is Necessary?

The world around us is changing. There is more competition for brands, products and services and more expectations from consumers who have less time. To meet this ‘new-world’, we must also change to keep pace with new technology and changing consumer behaviours; we all need to become modern-marketers.
