In our first event series for 2017: Keeping Pace with Innovation, e3 will be looking at how brands are struggling to stay relevant, personalised and user-focused in an increasingly noisy digital world.  In four live events from Feb-April, we will focus on innovation in the sport and automotive sectors, consider third sector content strategy and identify key digital trends relevant to all ambitious brands and organisations.  We will also share digital frameworks and methodologies to help your business keep pace with consumer expectations.

In 2016, we launched and ran two successful event series on the themes of Innovation and Experience, enabling us to collaborate with cross-sector senior brand marketers from Goldman Sachs, Cancer Research UK, BBC, Vodafone, B&Q HSBC and many others.

These resulted in two whitepapers, free to download here:

The biggest and newest innovations in digital are often first touted by the sport and fitness sectors before they become the latest trend.

From Under Armour's big data strategy to Adidas' 3D printed shoes, sport and fitness are increasingly ahead of the curve. With the advent of chatbots and the Internet of Things, it seems that the sky is the limit.

Joining us will be Neil Collard, MD at e3 and London Strategy Unit Founder Matt Boffey discussing what senior brand marketers can learn from these leading-edge sectors to help them keep pace with their consumers.

The way a charity approaches social is critical. e3 presents some of their findings working with Arthritis Research UK for the past year to deliver a framework that puts social media at the centre of supporter and influencer communications. It has not only enabled the charity to understand the role of social in their wider content strategy, but outlined the most effective team and tools to deliver that activity.

Kate Fitzpatrick, Senior Strategist at e3 will be taking us through the key findings required to create an angle, organisation-wide social framework.
