WARC from Home is our series of content for those looking to skill up in the lockdown – including a weekly re-run of a classic webinar from the WARC database. Find all WARC from Home content here.

This week we feature a talk by Les Binet and Sarah Carter of adam&eveDDB on How Not to Plan, based on their book of the same name (published by the Account Planning Group in the UK).

The webinar runs through some of these, and brings in some real-life examples of strategy-gone-wrong. Here’s a great example on the perils of rushing to communication before considering the other marketing fundamentals:
