The Shifting Ethics of Digital Marketing

Join Jake Surrey at Creative Pulse on Thursday, Mar 28th

Our work as commercial creatives and marketers is to influence behaviour. But how should we react when our work is at odds with our ethics?

As Head of Digital at Fountain Partnership, Jake Surrey has worked with clients like Porsche, Casio, and Google.

During his career as an international marketer, Jake has encountered moral dilemmas which have forced him to examine the ethical implications of his work.

On March 28, Jake will lead a conversation on how commercial creatives and marketers can better incorporate ethics into our work.

Freelancers, agency creatives, and industry leaders can attend this Talk + Social to discover:

  • How to evaluate ethics vs effectiveness in the ever-evolving digital landscape,
  • Why automation and algorithms make it increasingly important for professionals to take responsibility,
  • Ways to leverage technology for good.

Join us at Elevator Strategy for tasty beverages and pizza — and discover how you can hold on to your moral compass while doing your best work.
