TBWA\Sri Lanka was disrupted by Robin Nayak, Chief Strategy Officer, Singapore and South East Asia at a recently concluded two day workshop, in Colombo.
The Sri Lanka team was rejuvenated on ‘Disruption’ using a live local brief and other simulated cases at the workshop making it hands-on and practical. The workshop also marked the launch of ‘Disruption Live’ in the Sri Lanka office where the emphasis was placed on being in line with the TBWA\Collective’s best practice.
With ‘Disruption’ being the common philosophy and way of working that binds the TBWA\Collective together, it is also the one thing that differentiates a TBWA\ office from other players in the market. With the premise of ‘Disruption’ being that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is insanity, ‘Disruption’ creates a focal point for a brand. At its simplest, it is a way of looking at the conventions that operate within a category and finding a way for the brand to behave differently to accelerate its growth.
The Managing Director of TBWA\Sri Lanka, Renuka Marshall commented, “What is exciting is that Disruption is not limited only to advertising or communication. Anything and everything can be disrupted. The challenge is to know when and how to disrupt. This paves way for exciting times ahead.”
“The hallmark of TBWA\ is that we don’t follow cultural and market conventions – we over turn them. We anticipate future trends to determine what could lift a brand” elaborated Robin Nayak.
Subhash Pinnapola, Chief Creative Officer TBWA\Sri Lanka said,”Disruption has been very much a part of our success. We take pride in developing business-changing, culture defining and effective ideas for brands. The international and local recognition as well as brand success stories reconfirm this”.
