Beers for Good - Be More Pirate

location Betsey Trotwood | 6:30 PM-9 PM Tuesday 10 October 2017 (GMT)

Sam Conniff, CEO of Livity, invites us to 'Be More Pirate'. Beers for Good is moving into action...

What is the purpose of advertising? Can it move beyond primarily selling stuff? Do you ever find yourself justifying your job?

Beers for Good is a meet-up for people in advertising who are interested in making a positive difference together. Each time, we share questions, challenges and discuss ways we can use our creative skills for good.

Beers for Good is back after a break and the world is going more crazy. What is it to act to create a positive change? What can help give us direction? We're joined by Sam Conniff, founder of the agency ‘Livity’ and previous Beers for Good speaker. Sam’s writing a book, Be More Pirate about the anti-establishment spirit that existed in the early formation of pirates. Not your Jack Sparrow, but the group of pioneers, 300 years ago, who stood up to a self-serving establishment intent on degrading humanity and environment. Sound familiar? The pirates got together, said ‘fck you’ and experimented with extreme citizenship, free-trade, fair pay and trade unions.

What would it be like to be a pirate, today, in the communications industry? Who is doing inspiring things that seek to change things for the better? What can I do? What can we do together?

Come along and let's find out.

Jonathan and Andy
