The Purposeful Power of Ideas with Value

Across the B2B world, the purpose bandwagon gathers momentum. As it does, many brands toe a fine line between authenticity and cynicism. At this session, Tom Stein and Reuben, respectively Chairman/Chief Client Officer and Chief Creative Officer of global B2B agency Stein IAS, share how brands’ purpose and commercial objectives come together through the development of ‘Ideas with Value' — big, long ideas that express both the values of an organization and the value that organization brings to all of its audiences.
