Rishad Tobaccowala, chief growth officer for Publicis Groupe, will deliver a keynote address, and top creative directors will discuss the latest trends and creative work from brands, as well as what it takes to bring home awards from Cannes.

    In today’s environment of rapid and frequent change, remaining relevant in transformational times is a challenge.

Before his corporate role, Rishad was the chairman of DigitasLBi and Razorfish, two global firms owned by the Publicis Groupe with over 10,000 employees around the world focused on marketing and business transformation. Rishad has more than 35 years of global experience and helped grow, founded/co-founded or incubated a variety of companies including VivaKi, Leo Burnett, Starcom, SMG Next, Starcom IP, Giant Step, Play and Denuo.

    Some of the most creative minds in the local, regional and international landscape will sit together to discuss latest trends and creative work from top brands worldwide. Moderated by 2019 CMC Hall of Fame Inductee Luis Miguel Messianu, creative chairman and CEO of Alma, this panel features Karin Onsager-Birch, chief creative officer of FCB West, Hector Fernandez, CEO of VMLY&R, and Elias Weinstock, creative director of Casanova//McCann.

    As the advertising agency gets ready to head to Cannes, hear from top creatives on what it takes to produce an effective campaign by which unique storytelling can connect meaningfully with today’s diverse mainstream audience.
