Debrett’s 500 2016: Advertising, Marketing & PR

From what we buy each other at Christmas to how we vote in an election, the influence of advertisers and marketers is all-pervasive. The decline of print media and the opportunities offered by mobile and digital platforms have changed the way we interact with brands, making the consumer more discerning and powerful than ever. The Debrett’s list showcases those at the very forefront of new trends and opportunities in advertising, whether they’re selling soft drinks, soft toys, or a future prime minister.
