Political strategy event featuring Alastair Campbell

I’m helping organise an event which I thought might be relevant to readers with an interest in political strategy – which is presumably all of you who haven’t arrived here via an image search for “funny David Cameron face”.

It’s called ‘Worlds Collide’ and it is designed to inspire attendees to come up with better, more convincing and more successful strategies.  Here’s the blurb:

On the afternoon of Wednesday 2nd May the worlds of politics, the military, advertising, activism and sport will collide when Alastair Campbell, General Sir Mike Jackson, David Droga and Jeremy Gilley  go head to head to convince the audience that their strategic approach is the winning one.

They will all answer a single brief: what do you do to win, when you can’t afford to lose?

The purpose of this event is to demonstrate that whilst strategic thinking is about being focused, honing in on and refining a problem, it’s also about being able to see a problem in a new or different way.

Chaired by Rory Sutherland, it’s the unmissable strategy event of the year.

During the course of the afternoon you’ll listen to each guest speaker and then vote on whose strategic approach you think is the most convincing.

Worlds Collide will make you think – and force you to question your assumptions – but you’ll go away with a head full of new ideas and inspiration to re-shape your own strategic thinking.

Details about how to reserve your place are below.

  1. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally
    educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
