Marketing effectiveness in the digital era

Taking marketing to the next level

EffWorks is a reservoir of learning, research and debate about marketing effectiveness. It was established in 2016 by the IPA and a host of industry partners. The ambition is to set the agenda for marketing in the digital era, to inform and inspire all stakeholders, and to create culture-change. Truly accountable and effective marketing is a key agent of business transformation and growth. Together we want to realise that potential.
