David Connor

David Connor is CEO of eightytwenty, Ireland's Digital Creative Agency of the Year and a regular presenter on the digital and communications industry.

Editor's note

'For the first time in five hundred years, emergent behaviour is running ahead of the so-called hegemony of understanding communications. Essentially, people are back to being at the centre of the solar system and a brand that doesn't understand this, and can't surround the individual in the centre with different platforms of activity, will lose traction and meaning' Richard Seymour. His sentiment captures the theme underpinning evolutionRevolution.
