Monday 19 June - Mindshare: Talent Without Prejudice

Talent isn’t gender specific. Talent isn’t defined by ethnicity. Talent has no prejudice. In this seminar we will explore what it takes for talent to trump prejudice and rise to the top. We will explore how the equality debate is evolving to be more than a focus on gender and statistics to be about how to spot talent, how to understand different perspectives and how to get to where you want to go. It’s a story of transformation. How do you communicate what you have to offer? We will be talking gender, ethnicity and more. Get ready to have an uncomfortable conversation, talented people welcome.

Friday 23 June - WPP: Martin Sorrell in Conversation with Robert Kraft and Ron Howard

The Cannes Debate, hosted by WPP founder and CEO Sir Martin Sorrell, is a regular highlight of the festival. This year Sir Martin sits down with two of the giants of sport and film: Robert Kraft, owner of Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots and Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution; and Academy Award-winning director, producer, actor and co-Chairman of Imagine Entertainment, Ron Howard. In a wide-ranging discussion of the intersecting worlds of sport, cinema and marketing communications, the trio will cover everything from making Oscar-winning films and taking the NFL’s greatest prize to the role of commercial creativity in supporting the sports and entertainment industries.
