Tom Reidy, Head of Innovation at TAG The Agency.


Innovative thinking and cultivating the freedom of a brand to adapt and move with the fast-paced, ever-changing world of modern marketing and advertising, is fundamental to how I operate. No longer can we rely on interrupting consumers with advertising and marketing messages!
Now, it is about inspiring them to act upon stories told through digital channels. Brands aren’t people, so it’s not bout content, but telling the story of a brand through a multitude of channels and platforms.
From drones to 360-degree video production, technology has enabled us to innovate and create content faster and to a higher quality than ever before. So what better way to tell a story and inspire audiences to act on these stories though dynamic content, and nothing tells a story better than one from an elevated angle!
