Episode Three: Optimising Optimisation

In a post cookie world, it Is crucial for ads to be equally creative and contextualised with substance that engages consumers and ultimately provides agencies with results to measure.

‘Over three quarters of UK consumers (79%) are more comfortable seeing online ads that are relevant to the web page they appear within than ads that are based on their browsing history.’ (GumGum, 2022)

Peter Wallace, SVP of Sales from GumGum, has joined Ed Steer on our latest episode of our Life in Digital Podcast to uncover how digital advertising technology is evolving and where the growth areas are for the industry in the years’ ahead.

Episode Two: Can data clean rooms transform ad tech?

"During a time where the Ad Tech industry has been disrupted due to cookies being banished and new legislations strengthening the protection of consumer data.

It has ultimately forced brands and publishers to explore new ways of making use of their data sets without compromising consumer data privacy."  

James PrudhommeCRO at Optable, joins Ed on this week’s episode of our Life in Digital Podcast which goes into detail about the emergence of data clean rooms in the Ad Tech industry and how this platform creates a secure and legislatively compliant space for companies who are tackling the loss of third-party cookies.

Episode One: Facing Unconscious Biases, Gender Gaps & Inequality. 

'Unconscious gender bias can exist at every level of an organisation, not just at the office level, or in middle-management. This ‘multi-level’ discrimination can impact organisations by denying women a voice in key decision-making processes.'

To kick off our year on the Life in Digital podcast, we have a special episode for International Women’s Day: Karen Carter, COO of Bloom goes into depth on how industries can tackle unconscious gender biases, barriers women face to equality and shining light on the overall challenges women encounter in the workplace.
