1. Political Communication workshop – by MediaMonks
Topic: How to employ the power of persuasive creativity in political campaigns
Date: 18th of May 2021
Time: 17:00 – 19:00
Description: Humans are complex and mysterious creatures. Why do they act the way they do? Which factors impact their behaviour? For government communication challenges to be able to make the right decisions and uncover the reasons behind consumer behaviour, behavioural science data is vital. Once this input has been collected, the question is: how do we tap into relevant research and steer the consumer into the direction we want them to go?

The Odd.Monks is the Government communication specialist team from MediaMonks. Inspired by and based upon behavioural science and cultivated through creativity, The Odd.Monks develop government campaigns that effectively change behavior. Like the successful Brexit campaign that went viral in no time. In this talk, the team will shed light on how to employ the power of persuasive creativity to reach purpose-driven goals.

Topic: Taking the Friction Out of Your Product and Putting It Back Into Your Brand
Date: 20th of May 2021
Time: 15:00 – 17:00
Description: There’s a friction, or stickiness, needed in advertising in order for it to impact human behavior. It’s what allows us to cut through the clutter and be heard by people who spend the majority of their days as plain ol’ human beings, not consumers. It’s exactly this friction that gives
brands the necessary traction to drive their business forward.
