Weekly Inspiration : From a Standstill to a Gallop

The annual Masters of Marketing Conference returns at the beginning of next month. You can check out their website here https://annual.ana.net/ for live streaming and/or folow them on twitter at: #ana_masters

At their 2010 event founder and CEO of IfWeRanTheWorld Cindy Gallop Cindy shared her thoughts on how the future of advertising is about ‘making stuff’:

the future of advertising is about production
