2020 AMI Marketing Excellence Gala
Be Brave. Be Bold. Be Ready.
With a career synonymous with work that truly moves the needle, Laura Clarke is often regarded as a pioneer in creating campaigns for change that are brave, bold and ground-breaking.
Her penchant for challenged thinking has led to some of the most talked about initiatives (both domestically and globally) but is most known for her work as co-founder of the Palau Pledge, a ground-breaking and genuinely innovative first step to increasing awareness around eco-tourism practices and what the global community can do to collectively take greater responsibility and create change. The Palau Pledge became the most awarded campaign in the world in 2018/19, taking home more Grand Prixs than any other campaign globally, it also won two coveted D&AD Black Pencils and in 2020 was awarded Black Pencil of the Decade by unanimous public vote.
As Gala Keynote Speaker, Laura will share her insights into what it takes to create truly brave work that resonates with an audience, as well as some of the highs (and lows) marketers face to get there.
“We don’t come to work every day to win awards but to be recognised by the most established and respected Marketing Awards in Australia is a testament to all the talented, dedicated, passionate and courageous teams at the Heart Foundation and News Corp that brought the Serial Killer campaign to life.”
“Marketing excellence is about being the absolute best you can be, from the very start to the very finish. Never compromise, have a clear goal and always deliver over and above.”
