Each chapter is devoted to one advertising executive, showcasing that person’s unique vision and perspective into the world of advertising. Who are these leaders? Talent, perseverance, creativity, and pure grit set these people apart―and that’s where their similarities end. With a mix of senior contributors and up-and-coming talent representing the creative crafts, media, planning, and account services from a variety of agencies and locales, this book pulls back the curtain and invites readers to live each leader’s experiences up close. They’ll learn from the advertisers at work.
Every interview shows how advertising leaders have an impact on a day-to-day basis: charting strategy, making effective pitches, managing clients and key partners, calling in the creative muse, reading the public’s mood, developing the right mix of media to launch a campaign, or pouncing on opportunities the rest of us can’t see.
