Promoting Gender Equality, Creativity and VR: Our Collaboration with AOL at Cannes Lions 2016
July 5, 2016
The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity boasts 15,000 innovative advertising leaders, eight days of inspiring speakers, and some killer views.
AOL Advertising’s Digital Prophet in residence, David Shing, invited ImageThink cofounders Nora Hertig and Heather Willems to create a graphic recording of the sessions and make their conference even more interactive. The content was captured in real-time & attendees were so engaged they rushed the stage to shoot video & pics, which became instantly shareable on social media.
Speakers Who Define The Creative Ecosystem
Every year, hundreds of experts from all over the world share their insights and experience on the stage in Cannes.
From game-changing thinkers and some of the biggest names in music and film to advertising’s creative luminaries and legendary business leaders, everyone speaking during the Festival will inspire you to think differently about today’s most pressing issues.
AOL’s focus centered on technology as a tool to unlock creativity, and the ways in which creative practices can transform the world.

Creativity In Business
For group thinking, organizing information into quadrants that the team can see will help keep people on the same page. Shing also encouraged his audience to place imagination over knowledge in the quest for innovation. It is all to easy to get bogged down by doubt & details, but the best ideas come when our minds are free to discover & explore. Our book Draw Your Big Idea, features many exercises to help with innovative thinking and creative collaboration.
