HOSTED BY WAX/ON

Glass Half Full is a series of events presented by Wax/On that focuses on the contentious issues within our industry through an optimistic lens, making the absolute most of what’s possible in our world. Sessions will be short and snappy, with an interesting mix of industry names and commentators as well as inspirational speakers from outside the industry echo chamber to provide a different take on our topics.

We are in the midst of a shift in gender politics that’s happening at a bigger scale and pace than any societal change in history. For brands and media businesses one thing is clear: toxic masculinity and the male gaze no longer have a place in advertising.

Our ideas must still sell, entertain or educate but now they must credibly represent rapidly updating social norms, from the acceptance of gender and neuro diversity to the eradication of sexism and homophobia.

Brands have both a responsibility and an opportunity to drive tolerance and empathy through their messaging, while not taking themselves too seriously.

As we explore how to strike that balance we are joined by a trio of brilliant creators, marketers and top-class industry experts. Alongside Ben Hooper, Creative Partner & Co-Founder of Wax/On will be Tanja Adams, Founder at Another Production, Jonathan Durden, Co-Founder of PHD & Below the Belt Grooming and Chairman at Connexi, and Mimi Turner, former Marketing Director at Ladbible & CMO of Wireless Group.

Join them for what promises to be a lively and interesting debate with their exciting panel.
