Worcestershire-based agency drp hosted its second ‘drpbigtalk’ on Thursday night, featuring a day of innovation, keynote presentations and roundtable discussions, followed by an evening of food and entertainment for its clients.
The day was hosted by TV Presenter Juliet Morris, and included a selection of industry leading panellists and experts. Eliza Filby, academic, writer and businesswoman began the event with ‘The Bigger Picture’, looking at millennials, Gen Y & Gen Z audiences.
Eliza Filby was followed by Caspar Berry, a motivational and keynote business speaker specialising in the subjects of risk, decision-making, innovation and leadership. The day concluded with an evening drinks reception, and a final session from writer, presenter and journalist, Martin Sixsmith, who used to be director of communications for Tony Blair's government.
CEO Dale Parmenter also discussed the recent acquisition of Windsor-based Penguins, a deal that was four years in the making and one that Parmenter hopes will strengthen drp's incentive travel offerings.
Callum Gill, head of insight and innovation at drp, said: "At last year’s drpbigtalk, we saw the tremendous value an event like this can provide; a day out of the office dedicated to looking ahead and glimpsing the future of our shared craft. This year’s event will be just as valuable with a great list of speakers providing insight, ideas and inspiration."
