Edited highlights of our full length conversation.

Are you leading, following or getting out of the way?

This episode is the first in a series of conversations that I’m having in partnership with the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity.

For the next five weeks leading up to Cannes, we’re going to focus our study of leadership through a single lens. The impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Creative Industries.

Are we moving fast enough? Are we going far enough? Is this an opportunity to fundamentally redesign the creative industries, or should we adjust and iterate, slowly and carefully? Do we follow the puck, or skate to where it’s going? There are opportunities and risks around every corner.

We start with a conversation with Nick Law, who is Creative Chairperson at Accenture Song.

Nick has seen the creative industries from an array of extraordinary perspectives. He was Vice Chairman, Global Chief Creative Officer at R/GA, he served as Chief Creative Officer at Publicis Groupe, and was Vice President of Marcom Integration at Apple, where he co-led the global design and marketing group.

On his Cannes speaker profile, Nick says that he believes all technology needs creativity to make it human, and all creativity needs technology to make it real.

At the end of the series, I’ll offer some thoughts on what we’ve heard and learned, and where we might go from here.

It promises to be an eye opening and thought provoking journey.

Thanks for joining us.
