It is important for advertisers to take consumers’ journeys into account, says Claudine Collins, Managing Director of MediaCom UK, one of the world’s most successful content and communications agencies.
Speaking last Friday in London at the London School of Business and Finance’s (LSBF) Great Minds Live series, Ms Collins said that the key challenge facing the industry was the fast pace at which things are changing.
