Math Men vs Mad Men

October 15, 2013

Tomorrow evening the Evening Speaker Series will hold Creativity versus Data: Can creativity and data co-exist in a data-driven economy?

We asked panelists to give us a brief insight into the Big Question (in 140 characters or less/more). So in no special order:

Is data driven marketing at odds with creative excellence? Can they work together? If they can coexist – Who ‘wears the pants’?

The most powerful way to create loyal long-term believers in your brand is through a rich emotional connection delivered through an insightful creative idea.

 

Simon DannattSimon Dannatt of The Sound Research

Data & creative, they must co-exist and they can both ‘wear the pants’, a special pair of four legged pants. The pants are probably blue.

Data vs Creative is a false dichotomy, any marketer worth their salt balances both.
