My favourite saying is … performance measurement is crucial to success. Understanding performance is the first point on the journey to optimisation and incremental improvement.
As a major player in customer centric Digital Marketing for Banking over the last two decades, Eve has now focused her talents on new ways of working to make digital impact on social good. As an awardwinning major hire for Craig Le Grice at CoSkill (as Eve Morris) she proved that a startup can compete with the big players and now at Once We Were she is transforming the business to bring even greater value to large UK charities through harnessing the power of customer data and digital to optimise performance, and drive success.

The next big thing in digital … will be how digital becomes an experience of the company, and how that builds brand preference, inside and out.
Francesca (Fran) Brosan is Chairman of Omobono, a role she’s held since starting the company at her kitchen table with co-founders Ben Dansie and Chris Butterworth in 2001.

I’m where I am today because ... ‘Damned if you do, dead if you don’t’ – we think it sums up the startup attitude in digital advertising pretty well. You have to constantly embrace change and evolve for success.

My one wish would be … to time travel. I’d love to see the future and the past like I was there, which is something people will be able to simulate through VR in the future.
