Kathryn Jacob, CEO of Pearl & Dean
Michael Brunt, Publisher of The Economist
In this Dog ‘n’ Bone special, recorded at the Cannes Lions festival, we listen to Kathryn and Michael enjoying a relaxed chat about the challenges facing ‘traditional media’ – including the fact that the reality of the cinema experience means it cannot deliver mobile data to brands.
We hear how cinema and print can help drive change in social attitudes and how this ties-in with The Economist’s plans to celebrate its 175th anniversary. We also learn why Insect Ice Cream makes for a great marketing campaign and the dangers posed by a rogue handbag during an important client meeting.
