Tuesday 22nd November 2016 @ The Interchange (Atrium), Camden
Welcome to our Creative Superheroes 2.0 networking event, back after popular reception earlier this year.
We will be bringing together some of digital’s creative superheroes to combine the inner workings of their minds and to outline some of the techniques, inspirations and experiences they harness to tackle the discipline they call home. Expect tips, anecdotes and revelations galore, as our industry leaders lay down the law on how to push forward (and succeed) in an industry that’s never been more exciting to be a part of.
What you’ll take away:
– The ability to unravel and understand your own background, skills and inspirations, turning them into a superpower you won’t be able to live without.
– An unflinching look into how different creative minds and personalities drive change – and how they approach doing it.
– A grasp on different creative perspectives to boost your own creativity and problem-solving abilities.
– An abundance of refreshments and post-talk chats with the speakers.
With space for up to 200, we would like to invite you straight from work for 6.30pm, to unwind with other creative professionals over some drinks and pizza. We will be networking from 6.30pm and Guest Talks will begin around 7.15.
We will have introductory presentations from each speaker, followed by an open panel discussion. This will be a relaxed event and will be your chance to ask those questions which you’d love answered, so please come with an open mind and be prepared to get involved!
Hiring managers are welcome and if you are interested in hosting or sponsoring an event (and would like to get a taste of what we do), please get in touch with Myles McMorrow and we can hold you a ticket!

Brian Cooper, Chief Creative Officer – Oliver
Brian’s career as a hybrid creative is steeped in above the line and digital expertise from both within, and outside of the agency world. With a career spanning BBH, McCann-Erickson, Mother, Wieden & Kennedy and most recently a stint as ECD at Ogilvy, he’s also had a spell as Apple’s Creative Director and spent a few successful years at Dare. He has created major award winning work at both Digital and ATL agencies. His awards include campaigns for Sony Ericsson, Vodafone, MasterCard, Greenpeace, the Royal Marines, Lynx and Audi.
Before getting into advewrtising, Brian had two previous careers. One as a District Supermarket Manager for Aldi, the other as an Army officer in the Royal Regiment of Artillery.
André Moreira, Global Creative Director/Head of Art – Havas WW London
André has been rewarded by every major festival with over 100 industry awards – from Webbys to Pencils – across a variety of categories – from Media Innovation to Print Advertising – a testament to the diversity of his work and his belief in modern, integrated communications. He has also had the honour of serving on several juries across the world including D&AD and Campaign Big Awards in his adopted United Kingdom.
Lucky enough to have lived in Lisbon, Amsterdam and London, he has had the opportunity to work for, and even help launch, some of the world’s biggest and most innovative brands including Blackberry, Pepsi, Cuervo, Nissan, Sony, Skype and eBay for whom he created the world’s first TV ad with a live web feed – which promptly made ITV ‘crash’ the first time it ran.
At Albion London, after becoming Creative Director, he helped lead the agency to Campaign’s Digital Agency of the Year runner-up two years in a row, 2010 and 2011.
André was appointed Head of Art of Havas Worldwide London in 2011, and more recently Global Creative Director of Chivas Regal. Under his guidance the brand is enjoying a creative resurgence, producing award-winning work across platforms from advertising to gaming to branded content.
Along the way he managed to find enough time to create the a One-Shot Film-Festival, hosted entirely online, and help the British Basketball team qualify for its own Olympics, which he is still waiting to meet The Queen for.
Ben Scott-Robinson, Head of The Agency – Ordnance Survey
Ben has been working in digital since 1996. In that time, he has founded two agencies, two consultancies, an app startup and a developed a prototype phone for blind people. He has been awarded Mobile Innovator of the Year, placed #3 in the Mobile Top 100 and handed the Under the Radar Judges Choice.
Ben believes in bringing holistic experience design to the boardroom, where it’s seen as an essential part of strategy and culture. He believes in an approach where ideas are implemented quickly, where a campaign is seen as a product and where the customer constantly informs how the experience grows and evolves.
Having crossed the line from agency to startup to client-side and back again, Ben is equally at home nurturing junior designers or inspiring Board members of FTSE 100 companies. He has held the role of Creative Director, Experience Director, Head of Agency and Head of Brilliant. Right now, Ben runs The Agency – the internal experience and creative agency for Britain’s national mapping treasure, Ordnance Survey, creating award winning products and services for hikers and The Cabinet Office alike.
Katie Carruthers, Creative Director and Head of Copy – Digitas LBi.
Katie has worked across all sectors from entertainment to financial via FMCG, for brands such as BT, BBC, Barclays, Cow & Gate, HSBC, Nivea and O2. And she’s worked on everthing from digital campaigns to radio ads, print ads, film scripts, speeches and more. She’s had the pleasure of winning all sorts of awards from BIMA, Creative Circle, Campaign Big awards, One Show Interactive and the Webby Awards, to Campaign’s number 1 digital ad of the year, plus a few Cannes Lions this year too. She’s also judged the likes of Campaign Big Awards and Creative Circle.
But what Katie really feels strongly about, is making things that are entertaining, interesting or useful. Otherwise it’s just marketing drivel. The joy of going to work is trying to make something that will delight the audience, making their day, week, or life better. She’s a strong believer in the power of storytelling, and is currently trying to work out how she can weave elements from the sci-fi teen novel she’s writing into her work, an HSBC banking project maybe…
