Buckinghamshire New University’s Advertising Society (Bucks Ad Soc) has been set up to help students learn more about the advertising industry and give them access to people and events that will inspire and motivate. Bringing in some of the biggest names in the industry, students have access to new thinking and with the right attitude, a pathway into their first job as a graduate!

Regular events to meet the people who keep advertising at its best and students from other Ad Soc communities mean Bucks Ad Soc members get the best opportunities to network. They will hear talks by industry thought leaders and can recommend any topics they’d like to be part of the Bucks Ad Soc series of events. 

The society also endevours to bring both the University’s Advertising Management and Creative Advertising students together to work on projects and get a feel for what the ‘real world’ of advertising is like. Always open to suggestions and new ideas, Bucks Ad Soc is run for the students, by the students.

Vic Davies said ’The University has a growing reputation in the Advertising Industry. George and I wanted to provide a platform for senior and respected members of the Industry, in order for them to voice their opinions, and reflections on the Industry as it meets the challenges of the 21st century. We believe that as an academic institution we can provide a platform that offers that opportunity’. ’We are delighted that Paul has agreed to give this lecture’ said George Boyter. ‘The Advertising industry is undergoing fundamental changes with the influence of digital technology, media innovation and data manipulation. It’s a good time to take stock of the situation. Who better to give us a clear-headed view than Paul, with his intellect and wealth of experience? He can draw relevant wisdom from the past and show us how this can be applied to the future. This is a lecture not to be missed’.

Advertising Age report. Recognizing this rise in social media interaction and two-way communication between brands and consumers, marketing experts Sue Unerman and Jonathan Salem Baskin suggest that the most essential practice in marketing, both online and offline, is truth.

With research on hundreds of companies and case studies on more than fifty global brands,

Tell the Truth makes a strong case for how truthful marketing, advertising, and public relations yields sales, profits, and sustainable relationships. Endorsed by top marketing gurus Seth Godin and Al Ries, Tell the Truth explains the importance of building your brand with integrity and authenticity, especially in a digital age where consumers have more access to companies than ever.
