Don’t Miss What’s Happening at AWE


Advertising Week Europe has officially kicked off in the lively city of London. Today The AD Club will present a special event: Defining Bravery. In honor of The International ANDY Awards 50th anniversary celebrating bravery in advertising, this unique event will feature inspirational talks about stories of bravery from an amazing lineup of industry icons, including:

  • David Droga, Creative Chairman, Droga5 & Chairman of the ANDYs 50th 
  • Sir John Hegarty, Co-Founder, BBH 
  • Dave Trott, Chairman, The Gate London 
  • Steve Henry, Co-Founder, Decoded (Founder and former Creative Director, HCCL) 

Here’s the twist: to challenge the industry to get into the bravery mindset and take risks to achieve greatness, individuals will be selected at random from the audience to join these icons on stage to tell their own stories of bravery! Don’t miss this exciting event. And while you’re there, check out some of the other great events AWE has lined up.
