MASTERCLASS: BRAVERY IN BRANDING - FINDING YOUR BRAND'S X-FACTOR
ITV celebrated its 60th anniversary last year- and retains it's position as Europe's largest commercial broadcaster (as well as being the creator and home of the Xfactor!). The story of this once-traditional British brand's survival within decades of digital revolution is one of global business & brand transformation. ITV channels and on demand services now air in the UK as well as internationally and ITV Studios is now the biggest non scripted production company in the US.
 
Sakaan led the 2013-15 re-brand transformation and launch of new channels and services.
 
She will show the ITV case study and will draw on her years of experience at the BBC to share the learnings of what it takes creatively and culturally from a client side perspective to create and sell in the bravest brand work.
