The Creative Disruptors

The changing landscape of the creative world was on full display at Cannes this year.  From the innovators to the creators to the rockstars who are changing health this year the Cannes Lions festival was an eclectic mix of creative minds shaping our industry.  This year I became a member of the sisterhood at The Girls' Lounge.  Shelly Zalis has created a one-of-a-kind environment in which women in marketing, advertising, media and technology can connect like-minded women. It is a place to put your feet up and let your guard down.

This year at the Cannes Lions festival I sat on a number of panels,  but sitting on the New York Times “Power Conversation” at the Girls Lounge at The Martinez truly took the Rosé.  I was honored to be brought together with Visa’s SVP of North American Marketing Lara Balazs, Meredith Kopit Levien, NYT columnist Maureen Dowd, Tina Brown, CEO/Founder of Tina Brown Live Media, Susan Lyne, President, BBG Ventures at AOL, Media Link President & COO Wenda Harris Millard , Wendy Clark, President, Sparkling Brands & Strategic Marketing at Coca-Cola, Linda Boff the Executive Director of Global Brand Marketing at GE, Hanna Bronfman, Influencer/Entrepreneur and star of HannahGram and the one and only Shelly Zalis to talk about how we as females have to continue acting with conviction to teach other women to embrace technology as it can serve as the great economic equalizer for us as artist and business professionals.
