Data drives decisions
Marketing effectiveness is not just a 'nice to have'. It is a key factor in business growth. EffWorks is a reservoir of learning, research and debate established by the IPA and a host of industry partners. The ambition is to provide the marketing industry with resources and tools to change its culture. To realise the potential of truly accountable and effective marketing.
DRIVEN BY RESEARCH
We invest in an ongoing programme of research. It informs our content and events so you can be sure they are grounded in real data and the latest findings. Every year at EffWeek we publish our new findings. We are currently focussing our efforts on four areas: the impact of digital on media investments, building effectiveness culture, creativity, and measurement.

To move the industry from a reporting to a learning culture. To encourage greater accountability and transparency. Ultimately to create more value for the brands we service."
