PLEASE NOTE: this event is now over.


In a sector that prides itself on logic, how can we unlock more creative magic, drive more audience connection, and deliver more brand differentiation in 2024?

This breakfast panel event is for anyone working in brand/marketing/comms and will cover:

  • What’s holding the financial services sector back from embracing the power of creativity
  • Can FS brands be creatively disruptive in a low trust environment?
  • What’s the DNA of great creative in the FS sector?
  • What can we learn from the most creatively daring FS brands out there?

Much of the content in the financial services sector fails to stand out from the crowd of undifferentiated offerings, fading unnoticed into the background.

Nevertheless, the demand for creativity and the premium for great ideas remains. How do marketers and PRs unlock their creative potential, and how could the financial services industry benefit from a resurgence of truly creative marketing? In this panel discussion we will cover creativity’s role in strengthening brand voice, delivering on strategic priorities, and how marketers can unlock more of their creative mindset.

This event is in partnership with The Financial Services Forum, chaired by Lansons/Team Farner Executive Creative Director Liam Bell.

Liam is a hugely experienced creative, with a client roster that has included Natwest, Shell, BP, National Grid, Tesco, O2, Vodafone, Facebook, Google, McDonald’s and Instagram. Prior to joining Lansons last year, Liam led Teneo’s UK and global creative output for Corporate Affairs, Financial Comms, Brand and Public Affairs, working across Tech, FMCG, Energy and Retail sectors.
