Making Money is Art, Good Business is the Best Art

Health Inspiration Stage, Palais II
10:15AM - 10:45AM
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

Your Data Is Biased, Now What?

Martinez Hotel, 73 Boulevard de la Croisette, Terrace - 1st Floor
8:30AM - 9:30AM
Weber Shandwick

Data may not lie. But they can certainly be biased. Which means the algorithms we trust—often without a second thought—may wind up creating greater gender, racial, and economic inequality if we’re not careful.

What can brands and marketers do about it? Turns out quite a lot. If you care about promoting equality, or just believe in truth in data, join us for the biggest download on the subject yet and debate about the solutions.

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.

Global CEO, Sean Lyons, Chief Strategy Officer, US, Jess Greenwood, and EVP, Chief Creative Officer, US, Tiffany Rolfe will take the Debussy Theater stage in Palais I to discuss The New Creative Capital. As news about the advertising industry continues to churn with clients cutting budgets, taking work in-house and generally questioning the value of advertising and ad agencies, this presentation will highlight new types of “creative capital” that can inspire a modern creative revolution, sparking renewed excitement for the agency business. But, it requires acknowledging some deep changes occurring with clients and consumers that are forcing agencies to adapt or die. And the starting place for adaptation is recognising where and when creativity still retains the power to drive brands and deliver growth. – Badge required.

One Japanese startup is tackling the problem with a transformative therapeutic solution: AI powered by love. In this session, you will meet LOVOT, the next generation of companion robot whose raison d'être is to bring more love to humanity. – Badge required.

FCB & The Drum Present: “The ‘C’ Word: What Does Culture Mean in 2019, and is Advertising Shaping it or Contaminating It?”

BoatFCB
3:00PM - 4:00PM
FCB

It used to be easy for brands to align themselves with the zeitgeist: Coke’s 1971 masterpiece “Hilltop” perfectly encapsulated the hippie-dippie charm of 70s California, while Calvin Klein’s provocative 90s billboards kickstarted a denim revolution. Now, in a world where advertisers are expected to: act as agents for social change; contend with populism; be both global and local; and appeal to subcultures and fandoms (all across a disintermediated media landscape) it’s becoming trickier for brands to shape and reflect culture. The Drum’s senior reporter Rebecca Stewart is joined by a panel of cultural commentators from across the industry to discuss what culture means in 2019 and the role advertising plays in it.
