Less than 2 weeks to go now till I head down to the south of France for the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival.
The organisers have done a great job with the agenda, attracting the likes of Mark Zuckerberg from Facebook, Ridley Scott, Ben Stiller and a host of advertising gods like Sir Martin Sorrell and Rory Sutherland.
Microsoft Advertising will be there in force – we sponsor the event – and I’ll be running around with my esteemed colleagues – Colm Bracken and Kelley Myers – filming, blogging, photographing, tweeting and, hopefully, getting the chance to imbibe some quality rose wine.
