NOTE:  Please find my crude notes taken from Ad:tech Sydney March 2016. Please excuse any typos as this was written on the fly and with my life is now consumed with my beautiful 5 month old  daughter and work @ROKT. As such this hasn’t been edited, typos and poor autocorrections from my iPad Pro will entail. 




When Foxtel took all media planning/trading in-house 12 months ago, a lot of people wanted them to fail. This joint presentation with TubeMogul and Foxtel’s Chris Smith will detail the journey, objectives, priorities (data, cost efficiency, programmatic creative), learnings and success from Foxtel’s experience in 2015, plus provide insight into their plans for 2016. It will be a valuable learning experience with loads of advice for other brands who are considering the different models of marketing automation.
