Folker Wrage, President, Leavingstone International, Switzerland

SHUT UP AND DANCE. Are you done talking? Fine. It’s time for action. We keep talking about change. Does change happen? Not really. And yet it is obvious that our industry is not working the way it used to. Careers don’t take accustomed paths. Our lives don’t happen according to plan. It’s like we have gone to a club and all we do is stand on the side of the dance floor talking about how we should move our butts. So let’s shut up and dance. Learn a few steps in this lecture.

Folker Wrage

If you want proof that you can still be a nice person after more than two decades in advertising, this is it. Or if you want evidence of life in this industry after age 40. Or even 50, for that matter. And yes, these two things are connected. Folker lived in five countries, worked for six big networks, is at home in advertising as much as in direct, digital or shopper marketing. Never does just one thing, so he’s also consulting, teaching and sometimes even DJing. And learning, always. Earned his EMBA at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, served as a judge of quite a few juries between Cannes and Minsk, always happy to jump on a stage and share some of the knowledge he collected over two and a half decades in the creative industries. Unshakeable optimist and enthusiast, believer in democracy and humanity. Spreading Leavingstone’s unique creative voice as President Leavingstone International.

WHERE DOES THE STRATEGY STARTS AND ENDS? SPOILER: NOWHERE. There are two critical junctions in branding between analytics and strategy and between strategy and creativity. The quality of these junctions is responsible for brand’s unity that everyone talks about but that is so difficult to reach.

What it gives us and could it be dangerous?

In 2004, in cooperation with his partner, founded Artonica branding and creative agency, which carries out all types of strategic and creative developments in the field of branding, advertising and marketing communications.

CREATIVE EFFECTIVENESS. IT’S ONLY EFFECTIVE BECAUSE IT’S CREATIVE. It’s possible to be creative with a focus on results. There is no more room for creation that doesn’t wear the customer’s shoes and feel their pain. You can't think of effectiveness without creativity. It would be like give a party with the best drinks, but without inviting your friends. There is no chemistry that makes it work.
