It’s not the sort of courage that makes headlines or history books: this week Terry O’Reilly tells stories of those in marketing who take risks- or make daring counter-intuitive decisions, despite immense pressure to take an easier route. He’ll tell the story of brands that swam against the prevailing current, including some who used their ads to help break social barriers. And he’ll profile a fast-food giant that sunk millions into a campaign to tell people how bad its product was.
