Last week I attended AMP’s biannual innovation and thought leadership festival, Amplify.
As usual, the speaker lineup was first class.
For those who couldn’t make it, I have linked to the recordings of most sessions below. For the sake of convenience I have organised them under three broad categories: Innovation, Social Media and Mobile. These categories are somewhat arbitrary and they blur to varying degrees.
