We’ve created an immersive and interactive experience through which we’re asking delegates to re-picture key concepts, such as masculinity and success and inviting them to respond with their own ideas by using the #RePicture hashtag – I’m very much looking forward to seeing what the world’s best creative minds come up with!

AS> Aside from sunscreen and paracetamol, everyone should take time to familiarize themselves with the speaking schedule and diarise the key seminars, workshops and master classes. Time seems to slip away in Cannes as it's so enjoyable, so have fun but plan your week so you don't end up experiencing all of it through the bottom of a glass!
