Sir Martin Sorrell, the chief executive of WPP, the world's largest advertising and marketing services group, will be interviewed by Newsnight presenter Evan Davis at this year’s Business Breakfast for Haven House Children’s Hospice on Thursday 23 November.

Widely considered to be one of the most influential and successful leaders in the history of advertising, marketing and communications, Sir Martin will share his insight with Evan Davis at the renowned Simpson’s-in-the Strand, 100 Strand, London, WC2R 0EW, from 7.30am till 9.00am.

The Business Breakfast will open with an address by Haven House Patron Iain Duncan Smith MP, followed by a wide-ranging discussion between Sir Martin and Evan Davis under the themes of communications, digital, social and traditional media, growth (UK/global) and politics.

Sir Martin will discuss in detail:

  • The changing nature of digital, data and technology and what this means for organisations large and small
  • How digital disruption can be an opportunity rather than something to fear
  • Can UK businesses capitalise on Brexit?
  • Opportunities for the adverting industry in 2018

“As the preeminent leader of the communications and advertising industry, there is no one better than Sir Martin Sorrell to provide our guests with insight on the changing nature of digital, data and technology and what this means for organisations large and small."
