Last year L’Oréal reviewed its £135m media business through intermediary ID Comms. This was the biggest pitch of the past three years and ended with Maxus being appointed as L’Oréal’s media agency in the UK & Ireland. Chaired by Arif Durrani, Editor of Media Week, this is an opportunity to hear from all three perspectives; agency, consultant and client, giving their unique take and insight on what it takes to find the perfect partner.

The 'More Than a Beauty Parade' panel consists of Gayle Noah, Pitch Leader at L’Oréal; Lindsay Pattison, CEO of Maxus UK; and David Indo, Founding Partner at ID Comms.

Arif, well known in the industry for his journalistic rigour, will take the audience behind the scenes on this mega media pitch. Not only will he be questioning the panel about how the media pitch process works, but he’ll also be uncovering what big brands look for when choosing agencies. Drawing on the panel’s expertise he’ll shed light on the real role of the intermediary and clear up long standing myths about media agency/client relationships.

Arif will also challenge the panel about how technology is changing the media/consumer landscape and the effect this has on what media agencies offer and what clients want. View Less
