Making Money is Art, Good Business is the Best Art

Health Inspiration Stage, Palais II
10:05AM - 10:35AM
McCann Health <br>

As we know, Andy Warhol, paraphrased here, was way ahead of his time. As consumers, particularly millennials, gravitate towards businesses that share their values for social responsibility, businesses are discovering that making a profit doesn’t have to come at the expense of making positive contributions to society. Doing good is good business. Taking inspiration from the words of Bill Bernbach, “Creativity is the most powerful force in business”, Matt demonstrates how creativity is truly the key to doing good work that works. And proves that doing good is not just a guiding principle but also an invaluable business strategy.

Questions this session will answer:
Why doing good is doing good business

Why millennials will bypass your brand if it doesn’t contribute to the well-being of the planet

How business has the potential to be a force for positive change that shines through as a core belief of the millennial generation

How Health Communicators can Counter Vaccine-Hesitancy and Refusal

Health Inspiration Stage, Palais II
2:00PM - 2:45PM
McCann Health <br>

Vaccines. One of the world’s most successful and cost-effective public health interventions to date, saving millions of lives each year. And yet a growing movement of vaccine “hesitancy” has become one of WHO’s top 10 threats to humankind, contributing to outbreaks of almost forgotten diseases like measles. Innovations in vaccine development are focused on Pneumonia, Ebola, Zika, Dengue and others. However, public health progress is under threat by rapidly expanding groups of sometimes well-meaning but poorly-informed communities. New and creative ways to engage with skeptics to promote vaccine confidence and improve uptake are urgently needed. We’ll explore vaccine hesitancy and hear from leading public health and industry experts about what can be done to confront this growing global health.
