"Unprecedented Times” – Marketing Case Studies from COVID-19 Led by Liveryman Rhian Pamphilon, with insights from Liveryman Raoul Pinnell and Court Assistant Karl Weaver.

Scrutiny on brand values, threats to survival, honouring the needs of their customers – just a few of the issues which marketers have been dealing with through this human-centred crisis.

Rhian, Raoul and Karl will pose a number of questions, observations and case studies, including:

• A good or bad crisis for our most loved brand, the NHS? Raoul shares his views.

• How should brands respond to the COVID-19 crisis, and what do they need to do to succeed in the future? Karl’s perspective on actions needed for brands to navigate the crisis.

• Managing B2B through the crisis – keeping focus on people while mobilising at scale. Rhian shares insights from Accenture’s approach.

There will be time for Q&A and for Marketors to contribute their own experiences and challenges from these “unprecedented times”.
