Behavioural Science Alchemist

"One of the most respected creative thinkers in the ad industry"

Rory Sutherland

In detail

Although Rory's initial proposal for a system that would enable people to share Office documents over the emerging internet was met with rejection by Microsoft, he persevered and played a key role in establishing OgilvyOne, a specialised digital and direct agency within the organisation. Today, he continues to champion the concept of '360 Degree Branding,' emphasising the importance of maintaining a cohesive and integrated brand presence across all relevant media platforms. Furthermore, Rory is the visionary behind Nudgestock, a worldwide festival dedicated to exploring the realms of behavioural science. Additionally, he hosts the podcast On Brand, where he engages in conversations with notable figures in the media and marketing industries.
