scaling fast, disability inclusion, the power of fashion and more: advertising week europe 2019

Advertising Week Europe (AWE) took over central London for the seventh time this week, for the continent’s largest gathering of the creative industries.

Throughout the week, AWE’s unique forum for discussion saw speeches and panels from the likes of WPP’s Mark Read, Sir Martin Sorrell, Facebook’s Nicola Mendelsohn, Oscar-nominated actor Richard E. Grant, V&A director Tristram Hunt, and The Independent Group spokesperson Chuka Umunna.

Seven Hills hosted a special session, Disruptive Influence: The Secrets of Scaling Fast on the first day of the conference – which you can read more about here – hosted by Michael Hayman.

Michael then sat down with disability activist and #Valuable founder Caroline Casey and former CEO of Unilever Paul Polman, to discuss the need for greater disability inclusion in business. You can find out more details on their discussion here.

Further highlights included sessions from Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, supermodel and activist Winnie Harlow, and Google’s Matt Brittin.

Model, fashion designer and activist Leomie Anderson, fashion designer Roland Mouret and CEO of the British Fashion Council Caroline Rush looked at the power of fashion in a fascinating discussion; and The Telegraph launched its Women’s Sport initiative with Judy Murray, Dina Asher-Smith, Maggie Alphonsi MBE, and minister for sport Mims Davies.

Seven Hills supported Advertising Week Europe for the fifth consecutive year.
