This week's chat

June 23, 2014 Cannes Lions round-up with #CommsChat

This week we’ll be chatting about the huge Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity that took place all last week. We’ll be discussing the winner of the PR Lions award while unpicking industry trends from the festival line-up and awards.

Topics include:

  • What were the hot topics/trends at this year’s Cannes Lions festival?
  • Why is the winning PR Lions campaign, The Scarecrow, so effective?
  • Why are large communications events important for comms professionals and the industry?
  • The ‘Social’ section was introduced to several categories this year, how does this reflect on the evolution of the comms industry?
  • The Young Lions award went to a Japanese agency this year – why does global awareness foster a better understanding of the industry?
  • Sorrell commented in PRweek that PR agencies struggle to provide winning award submissions (compared to ad agencies), why do you think that is?

Join us! We tweet from @CommsChat and #CommsChat takes place from 8-9pm UK time – for worldwide times, go here. Anyone can take part in the discussion – simply follow the hashtag here or on Twitter. If you can’t make the chat or would like to revisit it, a transcript will go up on Tuesday morning.

We’d love to hear your suggestions for future topics for #CommsChat – get in touch with Brittany by email or Twitter if you have any ideas.
