Ideas should never be isolated.
Advertising is about sharing ideas. It’s about sharing ideas that inspire us to help others. Ideas that persuade us to think differently. Ideas that reassure us when we feel vulnerable.
But while we find ourselves isolated from each other, sharing ideas is that bit harder. It’s why we’ve created ISOLATEDTalks.com. Our aim is simple: with your help, we want to keep sharing ideas. By doing so we hope to raise money for the Samaritans.
You know only too well they are desperately in need of all the support they can get right now if they are to help us overcome the ongoing impact of coronavirus.
Rory Sutherland, Rosie and Faris Yakob, Dave Trott, Vikki Ross, Jane Evans, Rania and Trevor Robinson OBE, Mark Denton, Amy Kean, Dave Dye, Nicole Yershon, Rob Schwartz, JP Castlin and so many more brilliant people are all sharing their ideas and insight from self-isolation in the hope of inspiring you to do the same.
Indeed, we want to encourage you to be involved too. We’ve set it up so you can submit your own ‘isolation talk’ to share with others through this platform. You can find out how to submit your talk at the top of the page under ‘Submit’. Whether you’re a designer or developer, a marketer or media buyer, a creative director or copywriter, like us, you know the positive difference ideas make to people’s lives. We hope you’ll join us in our mission.
Motivated by ideas: How ISOLATED Talks started
With a loving nod to the wonder that is TED Talks, this idea grew out of a thought Giles Edwards (Creative Director at Gasp) had to share talks recorded from isolation for people in isolation.
Working with author and copywriter, Glenn Fisher (All Good Copy), they set about bringing together a broad range of industry experts to get the ball rolling and share their ideas and insight from isolation.
The response to the project has been incredible from the start and we can’t thank all of the speakers who have contributed to this project enough. We hope their efforts are reflected in the money we’re able to raise for the Samaritans.
