This year’s keynote speaker at Spikes Asia 2018 is McCann Worldgroup Global Creative Chairman Rob Reilly. He is set to take the Creativity Stage on September 26, the first day of the three-day creative festival held annually in Singapore.
As Global Creative Chairman for McCann Worldgroup, Rob is responsible for creative oversight of the McCann brand globally as well as for developing multiplatform approaches by leveraging McCann Worldgroup’s broad capabilities and communications resources.
His recent successes include being named in Advertising Age’s “Creativity 50” list of “The Most Creative People of the Year” and helping the agency win multiple Cannes Lion Grand Prix for “Fearless Girl” as well as its many more trophies from different awards shows, and having a hand in creating “Field Trip to Mars” for Lockheed Martin which in itself is another multi-awarded campaign.
A highly-awarded creative, Rob has chaired a number of industry award shows, including the Cannes Titanium and Promo/Interactive Juries. Rob is a member of The One Club Board, the Facebook Council, co-President of the Ad Council Review Committee. Outside the walls of McCann, he serves as Captain of his “old-man” soccer team.
On the Creativity Stage, he will stress how “Creativity is the Only Way to Survive”. The session will further tackle “being fearless. Making meaning. How creativity is being used to solve really big problems. These are just some of the things you will learn about during this eye-opening seminar. Plus get the full, behind-the-scenes story of the little girl who took on Wall Street and inspired millions around the world.”
Catch this must-see session at the Creativity Stage from 2:15PM to 2:45PM on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at Suntec in Singapore.
