Shane will share how Cogs & Marvel shape experiences to drive engagement. 'The experiences we create have to be worthy of being called experiences. They should change you in some way. We know that if we don’t change what people think, what they feel, or their behavior, then we’re not doing our job. But when experiences change people, then they can deliver on strategic goals, as part of a bigger plan with real measurable objectives. Think about the impact you could have if every interaction with your consumers, customers or team was face to face, and was what they would call an experience.'

Cogs & Marvel is a brand experience and creative event agency based in Dublin and San Francisco. -------------------------------------------- We film & photograph most of our events.
