Keynote: Sir Martin Sorrell
Sir Martin Sorrell, Chairman of S4 Capital
We are delighted to welcome Sir Martin Sorrell as our Keynote speaker at simplyIC
It is partly down to Sir Martin that simplycommunicate exists at all. His WPP company bought a communications consultancy called MCA back in 2001 and a small part of the proceeds from that sale went into the founding of simply-communicate 15 years ago.
In his Keynote interview Sir Martin will discuss the sea change that big data and digital have made to all areas of corporate communications.
