Cannes: j'adore


Each June, around 11,000 members of the advertising business come together to be inspired and educated at Cannes Lions (and love each other, enjoy good food and wine, warmth, and a swim early in the morning).

With Maria Louisa Francoli, an advertising eminence grise, I were running the first The Cannes Lions Young Media Academy a structured programme of ‘intensive learning themed around creativity in media, specifically for young media people aged 28 years or under’. 

Across the week we had the good, the great and the really great in our classroom and attended cherry-picked set pieces in the main theatre, an exciting week.
