• Paul Polman

    Hear what five years as CEO of Unilever teaches you about insight, impact and investment in research. In FMCG, there’s no room for error.

  • Sebastian Faulks

    Storytelling has become a foundation-stone for corporate marketing – and for creating compelling research briefings. Here’s your chance to learn from a master of the art.

  • Brendan Dawes

    Our world, and our attention, is dominated by glowing slabs of glass and metal. Brendan’s Dawes vision – and his designs – reinterpret it as a distinctly human place.

  • General Sir Richard Shirreff

    We need to understand geopolitical upheaval. The ex-Deputy Supreme Allied Commander for NATO, now a campaigner against gender based violence, offers his expert view.
