Ogilvy & Mather


06 December 2016



This Speakers Breakfast featured two of the country’s most original and creative thinkers looking at how innovation happens and why modern life and work often supress creative thinking.

Tim Harford – Tim is an acclaimed FT columnist, host of Radio 4’s More or Less, and author of six best-selling books, including his latest title Messy – How to be Creative in a Tidy-Minded World. He spoke about how our desire for order and predictability stifles creativity and achievement. He also considered how, in an age of Trump, Brexit and general upheaval, we can learn to live with uncertainty.

Rory Sutherland – Rory is one of the best-known figures in the UK advertising industry. He is the Vice-Chair of Ogilvy & Mather and a much-admired TED speaker. He looks at lessons from the advertising world, why our desire to control uncontrollable things makes us miserable, and why big problems don’t always demand big solutions.

The event was introduced and hosted by writer and innovation consultant Guy Browning.
