NEW YORK CITY—September 18, 2019— Something Different Chief Creative Tommy Henvey and Managing Partner Patti McConnell will take part in a special panel discussion exploring a new approach toward creating advertising based on simplicity and trust at NAB Show New York.

The session is scheduled for Thursday, October 17 at 2:15 p.m. in the Javits Center (Stage 2).

Great work matters.  The results they generate for their clients matters.  But here’s the thing, how you get there matters even more. Something Different is one of a new breed of full-service agencies, founded not just to deliver powerful, convincing messaging, but to do so in a better way. In this session, the agency’s founders will be joined by representatives of Charter Communications and Hewlett Packard Enterprise for a conversation about how happy people and happy clients make the best work.  They will offer insight into how they have fostered an environment where everyone is part of the process, everyone is proud to be doing what they’re doing and even happier about who they are doing it with.
