Last week, v3 welcomed industry leaders to our London studio for the latest Future Now summit. It was an engaging morning for all, with three brilliant panels and plenty of lively discussion, all focused on how to hack growth with brand.

In a world where technology and consumer expectations change swiftly, Tia stressed the need for brands to stay bold if they want to stay ahead of the curve: “We have a stronger voice now. We’re fearless.”
