Rocket Fuel: Youth Marketing

Re: Rory Sutherland (Author, and Vice Chairman of Ogilvy)

Season 3, Ep. 8

Rory Sutherland is the Vice Chairman of Ogilvy, a columnist for the Spectator Magazine, and author of the Alchemy series.


In ’88, Rory was but another graduate looking to work for any ad agency that would have him. Which, unbeknownst to him at the time, was none of them. Except one: Ogilvy & Mather Direct. Fortunately, Rory's circumstance of limitation birthed his best possible outcome as a visionary, even if some of his peers at the time joked that he was ‘the worst graduate they ever hired.’


Since then, Rory has made a name for himself by disrupting ideas generated by “normal thinking.” Coming from a behavioural psychology background, Rory deliberately dispenses with the idea that humans are innately rational, but rather that we are subject and vulnerable to our needs and desires as biological creatures.


Topics include: technology and the future of flexible work, the limitations of marketing and research, young audiences, and the state of UK politics.


This is Rory Sutherland’s Rocket Fuel.

Screen Time and Technology: Finding the Balance (Becca Caddy, Tech Journalist & Author)

Season 3, Ep. 11
Becca Caddy is a technology and science journalist, and author of the book ‘Screen Time: How to make peace with your devices and find your techquilibrium.’If lockdown has taught us one thing it’s that, for many of us, our relationships with screens are more essential to our daily lives than our relationships with our friends and family. Online, the topic of technology is polarising. We either hear from tech evangelicals or the tech reluctant; those guilt-ridden by how much of their daily line of sight centres around a screen. To cut through the drama and hyperbole, we invited Becca Caddy onto the podcast, a tech enthusiast and writer, aiming to help us live harmoniously with technology, rather than be consumed by it.Once but a local paper writer, two degrees later, and an eclectic catalogue of copywriting gigs here and column writing there, Becca Caddy is now a freelance technology writer, journalist, and author. Join us this week as she chats through her new book, her career, and the future of technology.This is Becca Caddy’s Rocket Fuel.Follow James @JamesErskine (twitter.com/jameserskine)Connect with James on LinkedIn (linkedin.com/in/jameserskine)Follow Rocket @WeAreRocketHQ (twitter.com/wearerockethq)Follow Rocket on LinkedIn (linkedin.com/company/thebigshot)wearerocket.co.uk/Follow Becca on Twitter (twitter.com/beccacaddy)Follow Becca on Instagram (instagram.com/beccacaddy)Connect with Becca on LinkedIn (linkedin.com/in/beccacaddy)beccacaddy.com/
