    What value do you put on giving your attention to this invite?


    What value are we willing to pay for your attention?

    The modern advertising and attention model has not changed since it was introduced in the 1920s, however, the platforms and delivery methods have radically altered. And with it transformed our lives.

    The attention economy has the potential to fundamentally change the way we interact with organisations and brands. Technology, like facial recognition, now exists to effectively measure attention and emotion. But will it change the world for the better?

    Join our panel for this discussion as we explore how we can design the online world to value our attention and a utopian future of advertising we’d like to see.

In that role, Tim sat on the Zenith Global Strategic Leadership team, the Global Zenith Product Team, the Global Publicis Data Team, and led the local Consumer Insight team.

    Bridget Cleary - Managing Partner, Melbourne, The Works

    Previously CEO of Big Red - Australia’s largest independent advertising agency - Bridget has joined The Works to launch their Melbourne office, which opened July 1 2019.

    Bridget is passionate about how to build strong, memorable brand platforms that drive consumer response and loyalty (and the science that helps make it successful), the power of technology to automate and free time for better thinking and provide real time insight to improve everything a brand does, and the power of a strong and happy company culture to deliver industry beating results.

    That focus helped transition Big Red from a traditional advertising agency to a marketing leading advertising and technology company, but more importantly it helped deliver outstanding results for clients. This included:

    • BHP adding $5.1B in brand value through its Think Big Campaign – the first in 30 years
    • Helping Optus drive down CPA by up to 20%
    • Helping Medibank increase conversion by 73%
    • Helping Bupa become #1 in the category, with the 4th largest media spend

    Bridget is excited to build The Works in Melbourne and is happy to report it is off to a strong start.

    The Works until now has been based in Sydney, and has been voted ‘Best Brand, Design and CX Agency’ for the past 3 years.
