20th September: Rory Sutherland, In Defence of Benign Bullsh*t @ Ogilvy & Mather

Rory_Sutherland_202-1024x680

September’s Tuesday Club Talk was with TED regular and Vice-Chairman, Ogilvy & Mather Group, Rory Sutherland; where he talked in defence of benign bullshit. Is stripy toothpaste unethical? Why does Wagamama ask if you’ve ever been to Wagamama before? How can you make people enjoy the rail replacement bus service? Why should you never send a wedding invitation by email? Why does the brain link buying a sofa with your spouse? And why will you always end up landing at JFK, not Newark?

All of these baffling mysteries can be explained by one very simple psychological fact. Quite simply the things we think are important and the things we feel are important aren’t always the same things.

aar_logo_su_pos_rgbOver the past 20 years Paul Phillips, Managing Director & Martin Jones, Managing Partner, AAR, have sat in more chemistry meetings and pitches that anyone else in the business, which means they have seen it all.

In this talk they shared what works and what doesn’t when it comes to successful pitching. With a liberal sprinkling of anecdotes, Paul and Martin shared experiences and examples from across the spectrum of agencies, sharing some success stories… and some horror stories too!
