Can advertising’s immense power to change behaviour 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 were joined by Reckitt North America’s Marketing Director, Tarik Bayar. Tarik has more than 15 years’ experience in multinational FMCG companies, and he is behind the phenomenal water conservation brand campaign for the Finish dishwasher brand. With Dan and Myra, Tarik discussed this campaign, his career more broadly, and the role that brands can, and should, play in tackling global issues, like water scarcity. This episode was recorded during the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, where sustainability was a strong theme on the agenda; and Tarik also touched on the responsibility of the advertising industry to create work that doesn’t just sell products or emotions, but advocates for a world that is healthier, both for people and the planet.
