Can advertising’s immense power to change behavior be used for good? In this brand new podcast, produced by Intelligence Squared, Myra Nussbaum, President and Chief Creative Officer at Havas Chicago and Dan Lucey, Chief Creative Officer at Havas New York, talk to the people who are harnessing the power of advertising to help people and the planet.

This week, Dan and Myra are joined by Oriel Davis-Lyons, founder of the ONE School and Head of Creative (Podcast + Talk) at Spotify. Prior to joining Spotify, Oriel held roles at Droga5 and R/GA. He has won more than 100 awards including a D&AD Pencil in every colour except white, several Lions and three Webbys. 

Oriel discussed the dissonance between the way in which the ad industry has historically profited from Black culture, yet employed few Black creatives, and explained how the prohibitive financial cost of entering the advertising industry means it has failed to reach beyond a narrow slice of the vast potential talent pool at its disposal. He also talked about how a frustrated post on LinkedIn in June 2020 led to the founding of the ONE School and how the school empowers Black creatives with the skills required to work at the top agencies.
