“What are we supposed to do with this??”

The brief is the single most-complained about thing in most creative industries.

Every client, every agency, every planner and every strategist has a different idea of what makes a great creative brief. Endless time in countless meetings is spent wordsmithing the document. Should it be “achieve” or “accomplish”? Distinctions without a difference.

Creatives have their own ideas, but those most affected are often the least involved. They know what helps them understand the fundamental need and deliver the goods based on years of experience rising to the challenge.

Join author, ad veteran and professor Luke Sullivan as he shows a number of different ways anyone can create a brief that doesn’t just sit there. A brief that crackles with possibility. A brief that doesn’t try to supply the answers but raises the right questions…what he calls “Boingy Boingy.”

NOTE: This webinar runs just under 90 minutes. There will be time for Q&A.

Key takeaways:

  • Screw facts and research. What is the fundamental truth?
  • Avoid stating the solution, instead pose key questions
  • Problem solving vs. problem finding

Who should attend:

Strategists, planners, account & new business teams…anyone who tells stories on behalf of brands (and yes, creatives)
