AQR's Young Disruptors

AQR's Young Disruptors Inside the ad agency: A Planner's perspective on advertising and research

Planners, creatives, suits… Is the world of advertising (beyond Mad Men) a bit of a mystery to you? Or have you found yourself working with ad agencies without really understanding how they operate?

This month the Young Disruptors have invited two VCCP planners to tell us all about the ad agency and what they love (and don’t love so much!) about research. Whether you deal with ad agencies regularly, or just want to know a bit more about how they work, come along for what promises to be an engaging and interactive evening.

Thank you to our generous sponsors McGowan Transcriptions

For those who don’t know, the AQR’s Young Disruptors is a group for all young researchers, (under 7 years’ experience - so youngish!) to play/learn/grow in the company of other like-minded peers.

We guarantee:

  • Free booze and snacks
  • The chance for you to have a go at being an ad planner for yourself!
  • You will meet some lovely young researchers…

How to RSVP: Space is very limited at this event, so if you want to come along please do RSVP your name ASAP to

What are the Young Disruptors? We are a sub-committee of the AQR which was set up 4 years ago. Our aim is to get young researchers socialising through events and workshops which are specifically organised for them.
