  1. Simple ideas enter the brain quicker and stay there longer. 
  2. Focus on specific brand values to create a strong content strategy.
  3. Don't just think of the message when delivering social on mobile, think of the medium.
  4. Brutally simple social enables local ideas to become global ideas.
  5. Less is more, especially when speaking to premium audiences.


Doug Baxter started his career in London in 1987, focusing on technology brands and winning a number of awards for media and strategic planning. After periods on both client side as a Chief Marketing Officer and on the media side as a magazine publisher, Doug moved back to Dublin and launched his own traditional, digital, social and PR agencies  creating digitally innovative campaigns for Unilever, Coca Cola, General Motors and Google. Doug moved to the US in 2011 and helped set up M&C Saatchi Share, the social and digital unit of M&C Saatchi LA. Clients of M&C Saatchi Share have included premium fashion brands, a mobile messaging app, and world-renowned cancer centers.
