The Communications Council has confirmed the final line-up of keynote speakers for the 2013 Circus Festival of Commercial Creativity with the announcement of Farrah Bostic, Founder of The Difference Engine, and Craig Davis, Chairman of AWARD and former Co-Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Publicis Mojo.
Joining leaders from The Coca-Cola Company, Facebook, Goodby, Silverstein & Partner’s, Saatchi & Saatchi X, JWT Shanghai, and the Sydney Theatre Company, Brooklyn-based Farrah Bostic and Sydney’s own Craig Davis will complete an eight-strong list of international industry heavyweights in a world-class showcase to launch the festival on 19th March.
Speakers will explore everything from Chinese creativity to lessons from the Silicon Valley as they uproot the latest developments in the world of commercial creativity. Encouraging lean thinking and innovation, Bostic adds expert insight in the area of Brand APIs, while Davis turns focus to the rising topic of Conscious Capitalism.
CEO of The Communications Council Margaret
Zabel comments: ‘We are extremely excited to introduce Farrah Bostic and Chris Davis to the mix. Diversity encourages creativity, and there is a real sense of variety among the keynotes at Circus 2013.”
Following the keynotes, the 20th March sees local experts go head to head in the Battle of Big Thinking – a day of snappy presentations put forward by a diverse group of 15 leaders delivering big ideas and exploring the wider societal context in which creativity operates.
The third and final day of Circus 2013 engages attendees in Master Class workshops, applying innovative thinking in creative communications to their day-to-day work, before the day and festival conclude with the prestigious AWARD awards: the annual Australasian creative awards celebration.
The ultimate circuit breaker event, ‘Circus’ is a world class learning experience offering both businesses and individuals the opportunity to rethink, reset and reinvigorate their professional aspirations.
