Further to the demand from the RGS Professionals Group, we are delighted to announce that we will be holding our first Advertising & Marketing themed RGS London Professionals event on Thursday 11 February at VCCP (voted one of the top 4 Advertising Agencies in the UK).
We are very grateful to Adrian Coleman, Founding Partner of VCCP, Group CEO and current RGS parent for hosting the evening.
We are lucky to have Adrian as one of our guest speakers, along with VCCP’s Strategy & Innovation Director, Adrian Gans, who will be talking about the importance of The Power of Social Media at VCCP (including their popular ‘Compare the Market’ campaign featuring Aleksandr and Sergei). It promises to be an compelling evening.
Adrian Coleman Biography: Adrian started out as a client with Esso Petroleum before moving to the agency side. In 1986 Adrian began work at the below-the-line agency IMP and he then moved to Chime-owned HHCL in 1993. During his seven-year stint at HHCL the agency was named Agency of the Decade. In 2000 he moved to Chime-owned AMD, becoming its Chief Executive.
On the 24th January 2002 Adrian co-founded VCCP around Charles Vallance’s kitchen table where Vallance, Coleman, Carruthers and Priest were united by their desire to un-do the bad habits of big agencies. VCCP is now 13 years old and has grown from an agency of four to over 500 people.
Adrian sits on the board of Chime Communications and is a member of the Marketing Society.
Adrian Gans Biography: Adrian is a strategist specialising in digital marketing and business transformation. He has 15 years’ experience in both client marketing teams and as a consultant within creative and digital agencies. Adrian has the dubious honour of having been witness to the dotcom bubble as it popped, at Boo.com in ’99. Since then, he has worked with a series of high-profile brands and businesses on e-commerce, customer experience design and digital communications, latterly as Head of Strategy and Planning at Razorfish and now as Innovation Director at VCCP.
