Big Wigs Talk Up Cannes

Advertising people really don’t need to be persuaded to go to Cannes. If the agency foots the bill, they’re there. Be that as it may, the uber fest is releasing some anecdotal video featuring Bob Greenberg, Eugene Bay, Fernando Vega Olmos, Marcello Serpa, Stéphane Xiberras, Nick Brien, Prasoon Joshi, Armin Jochum and Tom Beckman.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.
