“Has trust left the building?” APG Presents: Battle of Big Thinking 2019

Trust has been linked to every business and every kind of human emotion. But how does it connect to modern life? Is it tangible? Is it intangible? Does it live in institutions, in people, in leaders, in brands? Or is it up to every individual to decide? And is Australia a nation that has been taught not to trust?

Grappling with these questions will be some of the brightest minds in media and communications at the Battle of Big Thinking 2019, presented by the Account Planning Group (APG), as part of this year’s Vivid Sydney.

Hosted by Shelly Horton, Presenter, Nine, the speaker panel will feature:

Lisa Davies, Editor, The Sydney Morning Herald
Carl Ratcliff, Chief Strategy Officer, DDB, Sydney
Peter Fray, Co-Director at Centre for Media Transition, University of Technology Sydney
Kate Smither, Chief Strategy Officer & APG co-Chair, Publicis Communications
Alison Tilling, Chief Strategy Officer at VMLY&R Australia
David Warren, Group Strategy Director, BMF

This talented and brilliant group will make sure that diving into the issue of trust will never be as much fun as they debate and provoke each other – and the audience – while trying to put forward a credible, convincing and trustworthy point of view.

Have we been taught to start from distrust, to be more cynical and to always expect someone or something to let us down? Or are we more tolerant and expecting of trust breaches? Can they still break a deal? Once trust is lost can it ever be truly regained? Or does it even exist anymore?

Come along and see for yourself who will win the Battle of Big Thinking at the Museum of Contemporary Art on Tuesday 4 June.
This event is being held in partnership with Powered, a division of Nine Entertainment, and is presented by the APG and The Communications Council.
