Annual Convention 2015
Institute of Directors
The IoD Annual Convention stands out in the British business calendar as a celebration of enterprise and is truly a unique gathering. Working closely with the Institute of Directors we provided the creative direction for the staging, screen production and content for this year's Annual Convention at the Royal Albert Hall, London. Working alongside Blitz Communications (who provide technical staging services for the event) we were responsible for the look and feel of the stage set, the production of the opening video module and all content throughout the day. As well as creating speaker guidelines this also entailed working closely with many of the speakers and their teams before and during the event. With the theme Thriving in a Changing World, speakers this year included Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland; Kevin Roberts, former CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi; Baroness Lane Fox; Steve Hatch, Facebook; Brad Smith, Microsoft; Vivian Hunt, McKinsey; Leo Johnson; Olivier Grémillon, Airbnb; international economist Dr Dambisa Moyo; Lord Lamont of Lerwick; and Yanis Varoufakis, former Greek Finance Minister. The event opened with a film projected across the entire stage set featuring British poet Lemn Sissay.
