Our flagship conference! Yes. It's time to RISE. Only 13% of creative director contracts are currently given to women (and they are paid 7% less than their male peers). This is why RISE exists to change that across the creative and tech industries. And, we're INCLUSIVE. For change to happen, we need everyone to be involved in the narrative. It's at the London Symphony Orchestra's home in Shoreditch, one of the most beautiful locations in town. 

Walk away knowing: 
- how to design for 'inclusive creativity' and shape ideas for all
- what's keeping CMOs up at night 
- how to create high-performing teams 
- understand the operating landscape 
- discover the art of negotiation
- find out about the new emerging tech playgrounds 
- understand authentic leadership 
- learn from some of the industry's best creative minds
- and so much more. 


And we have a really phenomenal line up.
