In addition to delivering custom events and branded podcasts, we offer a wide range of services designed to grow your audience. Newsletter sponsorship is an effective way of reaching our 40,000 email subscribers and we offer simple banner ads through to dedicated content pieces.

Event sponsorship allows you to be associated with a particular theme and to present your organisation as a thought leader within that space. Post-event networking events are also an excellent way of engaging with key clients or prospects.

Podcast sponsorship is a route through to our over 1 million global monthly listeners and our podcast hosts will work with you to deliver an authentic, impactful message.

Intelligence Squared has a wealth of editorial talent including people who have worked at the BBC, Time Magazine, Newsweek and National Geographic. This team can help you with content development and long form content that ensures you deliver a compelling brand narrative.

Intelligence Squared is the world’s leading forum for debate and discussion, with years of experience delivering live events to audiences on a variety of topics, and featuring speakers from Malala Yousafzai, Stephen Fry and Tony Blair to Desmond Tutu, Kate Winslet and Margaret Atwood.

Many of our clients approach us with a desire to recreate what they have seen and heard at our live events and via our podcast and YouTube channel. Intelligence Squared works with clients to understand exactly what they are attempting to achieve and whether they wish to connect with existing clients or reach new ones. Events can be delivered solely under the client's brand with Intelligence Squared working in the background, on a white label basis, or clearly badged as ‘In partnership with Intelligence Squared’.

We have refined our event offering to serve any need - it can take place in person, live streamed to an online audience, or delivered via a hybrid model which allows for an in person audience and an online audience. Intelligence Squared caters for every aspect of event delivery, from the initial idea development through to editorial and technical production, and finally post-event care such as podcast and video editing.

Clients can make use of our sizable email subscriber base and social audience to promote their event and ensure high audience engagement.

Our podcasts have been successfully building on our established history in the events business for the last ten years, and our fast-growing, eponymous podcast feed delivers a high level of audience engagement and provides the perfect launch pad for clients looking to create their own podcast.

Many of our clients approach us with the desire to launch their own branded podcast series (or stand-alone episode) on a specific theme or for a specific industry vertical. We manage end-to-end podcast production, from initial content development, through to recording, editing, and promotion. We also offer clients the opportunity to visualise their podcasts, for release on the Intelligence Squared YouTube channel, which receives one million monthly views. We cater for a variety of needs, and branded podcast series can be launched ‘in partnership with Intelligence Squared’ or on a solely white label basis.

However, we won’t just make you a great branded podcast, we guarantee that it will get listened to. When working with Intelligence Squared, clients have the opportunity to release branded podcast episodes on the Intelligence Squared podcast feed and our popular branch feed Intelligence Squared Business – a unique offering that stands out in its ability to guarantee listens on the episodes released, and drive further listens to our clients’ podcast feeds by harnessing our highly engaged audience. We offer further sponsorship and branding, and promotional opportunities – such as host reads – and clients can also make use of our sizable email subscriber base and social audience to promote their podcasts.

“Working with the team at Intelligence Squared to help curate our programme of headline events for The Beauty Project was a pleasure. They interpreted our brief brilliantly, pushing us when they thought we could enhance our content and taking direction when appropriate. We were thrilled with the final programme, and they provided thorough support to our communications programme resulting in a sold out run. We had a lot of fun working together, and I hope we get the chance to again!””

Anna Cleaver, Senior Creative Manager - Projects, Selfridges

“Singlehandedly, the Lennon and McCartney event must rank as one of the best events I’ve ever attended, let alone at Investec... the overall quality of the evening, the decor, the profile of the guests, the debate itself, the food and drinks, the venue - all straight out of the top drawer! The comments I had from clients were awesome and made me feel very proud.”
