Our Braver Conference on 14 November is, once again, at London's Science Musuem. 400 of our members will gather to hear from a line-up of inspiring and brave speakers. Join us.

Our journey into being brave continues to grow this year, giving us inspiration, ammunition and lots of brain food.

Our 2018 Braver Conference will get under the skin of what being braver really means in work and in life. How can we empower our teams to become braver? How can we become braver in our ambition?
Last year, our Brave Conference featured mountaineers, surfers, virtuoso violinists and we discovered that bravery comes from the most unexpected places.
Here’s what you can expect in 2018:
Inspiration - Life changing talks on what it means to be brave in work and life
Tools - How to empower your teams to be braver too
Learning - Bravery is a learned behaviour. This is how you do it.
Connections - People like you, connecting around powerful ideas
Space - Time out the office to mull over the big stuff
Courage - If they can do it, so can you
Community - Belonging to the bravest, best gathering of marketers in the UK
So expect our speakers to really push boundaries, tackle taboos and get you all really uncomfortable - in what promises to be the culmination of our 2018 event programme; where we've held events discussing gender in advertising, race and diversity, gender bias, mental health. neurodiversity and other tough topics..

This year we're doing things a little differently. As many of you come to both our conference and dinner we're offering more options to both events. You can still purchase a single conference ticket (£750) but, when combined with the dinner, you can get the pair for £1000 (saving £300), or even two conference tickets and a dinner table for £6000 (saving £500).
See all the ticket options - tickets on sale for one week, 10-16 September.
Following a day of learning we continue into the evening with our famous dinner, this year at Finsbury Square, celebrating achievements of our industry, and saying thank you to colleagues, clients and partners, over good food and wine.
It’s a night you don’t want to miss. Last year our entertainment included two composers, Dr Orit Wolf and Tal Zilber, a spoken word poet, Hussain Manawer, and a DJ set from The Mac Twins - all hosted by stand-up comic Lucy Porter.
