Cannes is always a phenomenal source of ideas, and innovation, and I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to experience it first-hand. I’m looking forward to absolutely everything! Working in the...

One of the best things about attending Cannes is that everyone is in one place at one time to promote their best work. This will give me a rare opportunity to research what is selling and what the trends are globally. I’m most looking forward to joining creativity sessions because I want to see some examples of how it can be implemented to media...

It’s obviously incredibly hard to pick only a handful from these awesome talks! But if I have to pick one, it would be Sir Martin’s debate with Robert Kraft and Ron Howard. I am dying to see what the three giants have to say about commercial creativity. Commercial/Branded content is obviously always an important topic but especially so in a...

See the successful companies that are using true insights to deploy campaigns that ultimately make a difference and...

I’m one of those who thinks everything sounds amazing and interesting but when it comes to prioritizing talks, it feels like I’m five years old and I must give up one of my Christmas gifts. So, I will probably need to clone myself for the Cannes festival! A theme that stands out to me this year is gender equality. There’s a huge focus on women...

First off, I see this as a (privileged and) perfect opportunity to indulge all the hot topics of our industry, and to map out the best practices that I can take back with me and try to implement it in our reality. The Cannes Lions is a melting pot of creative humans and what I’m aiming for is to bring back some elements of either creative...

Well, I am representing India from the APAC region at Mindshare and this truly has been a dream come true. All of what was rather just discussed in college classrooms or the office boardrooms is coming to reality. Being a digital specialist I am keen to attend a few sessions like ‘Clicks or Skips: A Cheat Sheet for Social Video’ or the ‘Mobile...
