The President and CEO of the AAAA is on a mission to get some new voices heard. Here’s part of the pitch that landed in my inbox:
Like you, I’m tired of hearing from the same industry thought leaders talking about the same so-called thought-leading things at industry conferences. What I really want is to hear from you: If you had just five minutes in front of the entire advertising community, what would you say about transforming advertising as we know it?
I’ve started a new program called 4A’s Transformers, and we’ve just opened up our call for entries for anyone–inside or outside advertising–to share his or her transformational idea about advertising. For winning Transformers, we’ll give you five minutes on the conference mainstage at Transformation 2010, our annual meeting, which will be held February 28 through March 3, 2010, at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square.
