Percipient thought-pieces and opinions from some of
the world’s most respected industry leaders.
With last week's announcement from Cannes Lions that the 2021 festival will go ahead, we put a series of questions to some of the industry's regular Cannes attendees to gauge their thoughts on how post-Covid events might come together.
2020 was "a bin fire of a year", no doubt. But can the 12 months which follow it usher in a new approach for an industry voted the least trustworthy in the UK? Dan Cullen-Shute, CEO of London agency Creature, says 'yes!'.
January often means setting ourselves a list of resolutions. But, after the year we've just had, says Nicola Kemp, Editorial Director of Creativebrief, 2021 calls for a new outlook on the goals we want to achieve.

As brands recalibrate their creative messaging for a post-pandemic landscape, Accenture Interactive Managing Director and Lead for Global Creative Agencies, Jeannine Falcone, believes that the route to success can be mapped out through experiences.
If you can't go to the event, then the event needs to come to you. In a year during which live entertainment became almost non-existent. Daniel Hemsley, Managing Director at Swamp Motel, reminds us that there's another world out there, and it's one we can all visit.
From drunk shopping and sponsored souls to the rise of 'menimism' and the advent of 'out out of home' advertising, Culture Editor Amy Kean cracks open her fortune cookies to see where the industry in 2021 is most definitely headed.
If we learned anything from last year it’s that things can always get worse, says Farah Dib, Co-Founder & Creative Director at TwentyTwenty. The world is in perpetual flux, but there is one constant: change is asymmetrical. It happens at different paces across society, and leveraging any of our learnings from 2020 starts with taking the necessary steps to get us all on the same page.
