08 de abril de 2019

This year, Nick Law, Chief Creative Officer Publicis Groupe and President of Publicis Communications at Publicis Groupe will take the honorary position as Chairperson of the Cannes Lions School, guiding the Young Lions onsite at the Festival. As part of Cannes Lions’ commitment to extend opportunities for learning throughout the year, they have partnered with digital learning provider 42 Courses to establish a series of online courses.

“Curiosity drives creativity and a continued desire to learn provides an opportunity to shape and define the future of the creative industry” said Simon Cook, Managing Director of Cannes Lions. “Nick’s pedigree as a master, future-thinking creative will be an opportunity for our students to take a deeper look at their creative processes at the festival. As Cannes Lions promotes a culture of continual learning it’s also important for us to provide our diverse community with rich industry insights and learnings throughout the year.”

Young Lions are attendees under the age of 30 and range from people in their first role to CEOs and Lion winners. In his role as Chairperson, Nick will support the Festival in developing this next generation of talent across the training programme for students and rising stars, as well as tailored learning opportunities for senior marketers.

Speaking on the news Nick Law said, “The next generation of creative leaders are going to inherit and shape an industry in rapid transition. Their imagination, curiosity and obsession with all the proliferating new mediums will determine the success of this transition. That is why I am so happy to be the Chairperson of the Cannes Lion School this year. We have as much to learn from the next generation as they do us, and I am hoping to meet my future boss over the course of the program.”
