As The Drum launches its 2016 supplement all about Amsterdam, we talk to the creatives – both ex-pat and local – that form the city’s marketing scene.

Representatives from the likes of JWT Amsterdam, Finch Factor and DDB & Tribal discuss what it’s really like to live and work in the Dutch metropolis, covering off its easy pace of life, proclivity for English and ability to produce good beer.

The documentary also tackles the challenges the city faces in terms of talent, and asks how the industry might change in a post-Brexit world.
