  • Publicis prioritizing investment is super smart. Nothing to be gained from investing in Cannes. Way over priced ,
  • Cannes this year is both shallow and disappointing. Some ok content but overly commercial and no CMO agenda ,
  • Shares in Cannes Lions' owner fall as Publicis pulls out and WPP voices doubts ,
  • All marketing arcs lead to membership. @Cannes_Lions,
  • Sharing = currency of communications. The system (social media) carries the currency and enables transactions . @Cannes_Lions,
  • Better never stops @Cannes_Lions,
  • Love the power of great brands + great artists + great institutions being drawn together by the artist ,
  • Yup ,
  • Unification of Unilever marketing org means better control over assets - less duplication/volume and more localization @Cannes_Lions,
  • Keith makes a fair point on reach - is about reaching those you haven't reached. @Cannes_Lions,
  • Creativity is last source of competitive advantage. Maybe... ,
  • Unstereotyped ads perform 25% better. a convenient number? but just the same a powerful point if even 5% better. @keithweed,
  • Brand safety and suitability go hand in hand. Some progress made but way to go. @keithweed,
  • Time to tackle the bots. Rip the ad fraud out. No such thing as cheap media. @Cannes_Lions,
  • Must count 100% of pixels as a view. Not 50% and not less. Need for 3rd party verification @Cannes_Lions,

Kia Ora! In a little over a month, Maori Art Meets America – here in San Francisco. Save these dates:

  • August 4. Dawn: Ceremonial waka arrival into San Francisco harbor followed by a reception that evening at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.
  • August 5-14: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Forum ( 701 Mission Street @ 3rd in San Francisco) will host Toi Maori: Art from the Maori People of New Zealand –  a world class collection of fine Maori cloaks, enhanced with live weaving demonstrations and kete displays along with  photographic works plus live demonstrations of moko (Maori tattooing).  Both exhibitions will be supplemented by indigenous carving, jewelry and pottery. Quite simply, this display is “a must see.”  Toi Maori: Art from the Maori People of New Zealand  is the largest exhibition of contemporary Maori art from New Zealand in the USA in over two decades and seeks to demonstrate the spiritual significance of Maori art and culture.
  • August 7, 2pm: Special FREE performance by “Kapa Haka” Maori dance group in Union Square as part of the “Jewels in the Square” series, sponsored by MJM Management Group and SF Parks Trust.
