A WHOLE AFTERNOON OF LEARNING FOR 60 MEMBERS, FOLLOWED BY ONE BIG ASS PARTY OPEN TO EVERY STRATEGIST IN TOWN
The secret’s out. On Thursday, June the 13th we’re turning 3yrs old and to celebrate we’re putting on a mini-festival for our members. We’re talking a whole afternoon of events all focused on helping to develop strategists. We have 60 spots and tickets are £30 (to help us cover festival and community costs).
This is going to be followed by a party at 6:30pm, where we’re inviting the strategic hordes of London to help us celebrate with drinks in the sun (🤞) at Planner Pints. It’s free, of course.
A structured discussion on a topic related to strategy that gets us learning from each other – different strategists with different specialisms. You’ll either be discussing “Reframing the problem” or “Making the best out of objectives”.
Lazy Book Club
We read a book related to strategy so you don’t have to. We present the key themes of a strategy book for everyone to share their perspectives on it (e.g. “I did this once for a client and…”). You’ll either be discussing A Masterclass in Brand Planning by Stephen King, or Radical Candor by Kim Scott.
Open Your Mind
An experience that’ll open your mind to ideas, communities, and people outside the realm of marketing. This time we’ll be exploring the interesting culture and communication of street art in Shoreditch, with a tour guided by Street Art London.
An opportunity to ask one of our amazing guests whatever you want. It’ll be a lucky dip regarding who you actually get to quiz. However, all are bloody brilliant brains and they’ll be joining all of us to celebrate after. Our guests are:
Chief Experience Officer at Droga5
Chief Strategy Officer at Oliver Group
Planning Partner at Founded
Lisa De Bonis
Managing Director at Accenture Interactive
Note: For the 60 of you who get a ticket to the above events, we’ll be splitting you up into 4 groups of 15 ppl at the start of the day (to keep conversations fairly intimate). We can’t guarantee who will be in your group, nor which Mind Surgery topic, Lazy Book Club book or Q&A guest you’ll land with. However, we can guarantee you’ll meet interesting people 👍
At the end of the day we’ll be celebrating with one big-ass, open to all,
at 6:30pm, in the sun outside The Prince Arthur (N1 6EB)
First round of drinks is courtesy of our pals Rosie & Faris Yakob from Genius Steals. Sign-up to their newsletter, “one of the top three resources for planners”* here (*2018 Siftly Planning Survey)
