The question is, “where do we start?”

Speakers for the session are:

Creative Equals works with global and UK brands like McDonald's, Philips, COS, Bayer, Smart Energy and more to embed DEI into the heart of brand and business strategy, with a focus on campaigns, customer experience and innovation.
