Our fearless Fuel leader, Mandy Galmes will soon set sail for the glitz and glam of the French Riviera. She has been selected as the Australian representative for PR at the 2016 Cannes Lions awards – one of only 8 females – with this great honour comes the unparalleled opportunity to mingle with some of the world’s most creative minds. This year’s International Festival of Creativity will be a perfect storm of creativity, big ideas and networking. There to share her knowledge and experience over the eight day event (18 – 25 June), Mandy will be building relationships with some of the world’s best media and communications executives.
Yacht’s, beaches and bubbles aside, this year’s festival jury will be comprised of a record 40% women, a significant increase from last year and a record for the Cannes Lions. Mandy will have the opportunity to share her insights with other female industry leaders, and hear keynotes from the likes of Anna Wintour (Condé Nast), Robin Shapiro (TBWA\World Health) and Gwyneth Paltrow…that’s right, Gwyneth Paltrow!
Mandy will be looking at different ways to share her insights from the festival, so stay tuned for more Instagram snaps, blog posts and Snapchats.
