What kind of talent, organization, resources and creativity are needed to break through to consumers in this "on-demand" world?
AD Club Leaders and partners came together to tackle this question at our annual Media:NOW Conference and made it truly enlightening. 
  • "We are entering the age of advertising creativity and while it may feel disruptive and challenging, it is also exciting and inspiring. That was the message yesterday from the Ad Club’s Media:Now conference." - MediaVillage

  •  MARS strives for two vectors: “Timeless and timely. Timeless tells a consistent brand story that is enduring and memorable and timely brings in the moment and driving talk ability." —  Rob Rakowitz, Director Global Media, MARS Inc.

  • “Disruption sits on the shoulder of giants” — Bonin Bough, Chief Media & eCommerve Officer, Mondelez.

  • “We need to bring more young people and more multiculturalism into our business. Our business must reflect the audience we are talking to.” — Jack Myers, Chairman, MyersBizNet.

  • The Masters of Media Panel spoke of important themes and all agree that "storytelling is everything."
