Dr. Marko Majer Founding Partner and CEO, Mayer McCann Slovenia

Millennials are perceived as a specific generation, which is difficult to manage and motivate for work. They are hard to understand, and even they often describe themselves in contradicting terms. In the advertising industry, populated with usually more ambitious individuals, the overall stereotypes of the Millennials meet a commonly stressful working environment. Based on a research of young talent working in agencies across Europe, and particularily in the CEE, Marko draws some interesting observations and offers conceptual and practical suggestions for better understanding of the Millennials at work.

Words at Work (And Words that Don’t Work at Work)

Susie Dent TV Presenter and Lexicographer UK

The words we choose matter. In the space of one sentence, an audience can decide whether to tune in or tune out, just as a single slogan can change our perception of a product forever. Susie would like to try to illuminate the areas where marketers can get things spectacularly wrong, and suggest how they can make them dramatically right, all thanks to the vocabulary they choose. Electing the right form of language costs nothing but can pay remarkable dividends.
She’ll also be discussing jargon and how, contrary to all expectations, it can be a force for the good, providing it’s used in the right way!
Throughout, Susie will be drawing on examples from various industries of language that worked, and the kind that really didn’t, and examining some case studies in which the addition of a simple phrase, to a request, dramatically changed the result. Each will, she hopes, demonstrate the saying that ‘words are free - it’s how you use them that may cost you’.

Is this the end of mass media or just another beginning? If you think screens are going to disappear what can you do today to prepare? Or should you just cross your fingers and hope that your existing business model will still be there in 3 to 5 years? Nick Bicanic will talk about the future of frameless media.
