After years of careful construction and negotiation, the GDPR came into effect on 25 May 2018. Has GDPR lived up to its promise? Are companies compliant? Are consumers feeling the benefit? What is on the horizon for data-centric business models? This keynote will cover it all!
Stephan Loerke, Chief Executive Officer, World Federation of Advertisers
The brand-owners’ agenda. Advertising is the lifeblood of the internet. But the ad industry is increasingly seen to be behind everything that’s wrong with the internet. Regulatory and media scrutiny is at an all-time high. Consumer trust in digital advertising is at an all-time low.
As brand-owners, we are determined to drive change, in order to address issues of transparency, viewability, brand safety, ad fraud, effectiveness, measurement and data usage. Only by taking concerted action on online ad industry standards can we protect on a longer term our license to connect with people online. By raising visibly the bar, we’re convinced that we can build greater trust in the ecosystem and better align the ad industry with people and policy-makers. And this in turn will create the foundation for sustainable growth.
Eduardo Ustaran, Partner, Hogan Lovells
ePrivacy: stay calm and get to grips with the issues you should care about! What does the pending regulation have in store for ad tech? What’s the timeframe for negotiation and adoption? How does this all work alongside the GDPR? In this session, Eduardo Ustaran takes you through the issues that matter the most.

Jamie Bartlett, Director, Centre for the Analysis of Social Media, Demos
In 2017, the EDAA alongside its governing associations, released several videos depicting an online world where legislation gets it wrong – an online world ‘gone dark’. Today, we explore the paradox – a world without data versus a world with unfettered data collection. How does the consumer experience these two worlds?
Peter Kosmala, VP Platform, DataXu
Several critical issues are co-mingling in today’s marketing arena, some in discreet, consumer-facing ways and others in more complex ways that are less visible to the consumer. These include: data privacy; online piracy; ad-malware (“malvertising”); ad fraud; and brand safety. Such issues can positively or negatively impact how a marketer is perceived: in what contexts the marketer’s brand appears; who is actually profiting from the brand’s ad placements; the “trustworthiness” of the advertising; and, how responsibly and transparently the brand - and parties acting on its behalf - are managing the personal data used in the advertising. These multi-faceted challenges are becoming increasingly difficult for marketers to manage. Yet the answer is quite straightforward: create a framework where all of the issues - and all of those responsible - are positioned within a prism of TRUST with data protection at the center. Privacy as the trust imperative.

Jamie Barnard has worked in the advertising industry since his career began. He joined Unilever in 2007, after 6 years advising London’s top creative agencies and a brief affair with the music business.
In 2011, he left Unilever South Africa to create a new role as the company’s first ‘digital’ lawyer. Since then, he’s stood shoulder to shoulder with Unilever’s media and marketing pioneers breaking new ground in digital; from the dawn of advertising on Facebook, to the renaissance of data-driven marketing, Jamie has hacked a path through laws and regulations written for a different time.
As General Counsel - Global Marketing, Media and eCommerce, he leads a specialist team supporting Unilever’s Central Marketing and Communications Office. He advises on the legal and regulatory implications of 21st century marketing, with a focus on media platforms, adtech, content, and online issue management (everything from fake news and ad fraud to trolls and social memes). He is also responsible for Unilever’s contractual relationships with 1,000s of advertising and media agencies, social platforms, publishers and fledgling digital service providers.
Jamie is happiest on the water or in the mountains – anything that involves a board. Despite two law degrees and more than 15 years in the business, he describes himself as “London’s least likely lawyer”; his family motto (“If you can’t be good, don’t get caught”) says it all.

He writes regularly for several national media outletsincluding Spectator and The Telegraph, and recently presented a major BBC2 documentary series,The Secrets of Silicon Valley. Jamie explores the reality behind Silicon Valley’s glittering promise to build a better world, and meets the people who harnessed social media to change the shape of politics in the US.
