Can ideas really travel freely across borders? How important are local cultural factors for brands building a coherent international presence? And what are the creative secrets that drive some marketing campaigns to universal success while others end in ignominious failure?

The Creativity Marketing Centre at ESCP Business School hosted an exclusive Forum on the topic of ‘Creativity across Cultures’. Our speakers were two leading experts in international marketing who shared their insights and advice.

During the session there was the opportunity to put questions to the speakers, and afterwards the chance to network with our invited guests, faculty and industry partners.

The event took place at ESCP Business School ‘s London Campus on Tuesday, 28 June at 7:00 pm.  Attendance was free of charge.
