FP7 MENA holds innovation and effectiveness masterclass

FP7 MENA organized a four-day planning workshop last month bringing together young strategists and digital talents with senior leadership.

Describing the workshop’s ambition, Tahaab Rais, regional head of strategic planning, FP7 MENA, says: “Helping brands play a meaningful role in people’s lives makes people want our brands more and makes our brands want us more. In a constantly evolving world, our network is our net worth in doing this effectively.”

FP7/Next

As a testimony to this, the agency has brought together its various departments and tech partners to action new proprietary strategic and digital methodologies and tools. It has also introduced a new initiative, FP7/Next, where the agency’s “young talents are creating ideas to make meaningful work in a constantly evolving world,” Rais says.

WARC partnership

The agency also teamed up with WARC for an Effectiveness & Innovation Strategy Day, which saw attendees from Leo Burnett, Ogilvy, MediaVest, OMD, PHD and Mullen Lowe, among others.
