CORQ’s Brand Briefings insight sessions: programme for 2021

25 January 2021

Need inspiration and insight for the first quarter of the year? Or perhaps you want to get the jump on what’s to come in the media. Through CORQ’s industry insights programme of Zoom events, you’ll get all of this and the opportunity to ask each interviewee questions. The theme for this season’s lineup is “the doers” – the people who create content, spot lifestyle movements and spark conversations. See below for details of our sessions for Q1 and information on how to register for each talk. Our “Group Chat” inspiration talks are aimed at students on our universities programme but everyone is welcome and these talks are still enormously insightful. If you can’t make the live event, fear not – each session is recorded and published with notes on CORQ within 24 hours of it happening. Here’s what’s to come for all CORQ members…
