‘Is this true? I mean, is anyone playing a joke on me and it’s a phishing strategy?’ These were my first thoughts as soon as I received the mail letting me know I was going to be part of Mindshare’s Young Lions. I was so excited I couldn’t believe it was happening. Co-working with people from around the world, learning about their experiences,...

Ever since I entered the advertising industry, Cannes has always been my dream place. Not only has Cannes Lions been called the Oscars of the advertising that symbolize the highest industry standards of work, the coastal city on the Southern France itself is among some of the most attractive places in the world. Two years ago, I participated in...

Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity has been a dream ever since I began in this industry.

Working for a Tech B2B client can mean stringent campaign parameters – acquiring sales-ready leads with the intent to purchase big ticket enterprise solutions. Developing effective content and communication becomes even more crucial – not only in compelling an initial engagement but to nurture and ultimately convert the right user. The Cannes...

The outsider looking in. This morning I woke up in Amsterdam, overlooking a construction of apartments in the new development style that befits most cities. When I was 9 years old, I woke up to a large savanna, surrounded by family, a community feeling and an awareness of my immediate environment which felt like my entire world, even though it...

Cannes sounds a bit like a dream that seems to be unreachable and now it’s here! Nothing will prepare you for this and then you are packing your luggage. As an ambassador from a very narrow and specific market, I am especially looking forward to collecting valuable know-how from the best experts in the field and looking at the challenges with...

When my boss approached me to tell me that I would have the chance to go to the Cannes Lions Festival I was beyond excited. Geez – I even canceled a week of vacation for this. I was kind of happy that my coworkers couldn’t make the two following French classes, so I would be able to practice my French with our teacher. Alors, on y va et je suis...

First of all, I want to say that after having survived yet another extended, and especially frigid, Canadian winter I’m excited to learn what the sun feels like again. Secondly, it’s amazing to be heading back to Cannes as part of our global Mindshare Young Lions delegation! Linen, sunglasses, and an appetite for rosé—check, check, and check!...

Bonjour Cannes! Well almost… I can’t believe that we are less than a week away from the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity in France. I have the incredible opportunity of attending as a Young Lion representative on behalf of Mindshare. Growing up in Canada, you would think that I would have this French thing down. But to be honest...

When I found out that I was attending the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity, I can safely say for once in my life I was speechless. As a Young Lion, I’m honored to travel to France on behalf of Mindshare to investigate innovation. While New York is a diverse epicenter of advertising, it’s extremely valuable to get off the island every so often...

I still can’t believe I’m attending this huge festival so here is my POV: When I hear about Cannes Lions I imagine successful professionals who have something big to say about the industry. I am thrilled to know that at festivals of this scope topics such as diversity and LGBT + are included, it is one of the subjects that I am going to listen...

As a first time “Cannes-er” I can tell you that I am very eager to hit the ground running next week! The more I read up on the Cannes Lions Festival and discuss it with colleagues, the more excited I get to step outside of my comfort zone, absorb every little detail, and dive into conversations across verticals that I haven’t been exposed to yet...
