Tell Your Boss! We’re Giving You MORE at Cannes in Cairns 2023 Presented By Pinterest

What is one to do when there’s too much content but too little time in tropical North Queensland?

Slot in another day of world-class sessions brought to you by the thought leaders, the big players and the game-changers of Aussie adland! We said it would be bigger and better, didn’t we?

We’ll have all your industry verticals covered. From the return of the inaugural favs, You Can’t Ask That and Fad or Future, to think pieces like exploring our industry’s obsession with youth with Newscorp and understanding how the RGBLACK© movement is revolutionising the audiovisual industry with AKQA.

Plus, marketing legend, columnist and professor, Mark Ritson will present his core brand management lessons. So if that isn’t a prop to finance to score a ticket to Cannes in Cairns, what is? 

Mark Ritson

Ritson holds a PhD in Marketing and spent 25 years as a marketing professor. He says it best: “my MBA teaching won a shit ton of prizes including best teacher at LBS, MIT & MBS.”

But he’s not all high-brow. Ritson’s industry expertise has been hard earned from years on the tools, working as a global brand consultant for clients including Baxter, McKinsey, Westpac, Johnson & Johnson and Sephora. Ritson also boasts 13 years as the in-house brand consultant for LVMH, the world’s largest luxury group.

Ritson has been a columnist for 20 years with a weekly column for Marketing Week (we won’t hold that against him) which has garnered him five nominations for Columnist of the Year at the PPA Press Awards, the highest award for magazine journalism in the UK.

He’s a big deal.

You can keep an eye on our rapidly growing speakers list here. Highlights include Dr Karl, Stan Grant, Jane Caro, AANA’s Josh Faulk, Tourism Australia’s Susan Coghill, and Pinterest’s special guest (let’s just assume it’s Elvis).

The full networking day will now occur on day four, Thursday, 1st  June 2023.

In other news, Gilligan’s will remain unsponsored.
