The Drum in Cannes

Wednesday 19 June, 15:00-16:00

Cannes, France

No Bullshit Leadership in partnership with Havas

We’re calling bullshit on all the industry bullshit.

In particular, leadership bullshit.

Come and get a step by step guide to no bullshit leadership.

Join Stephen Lepitak, editor of The Drum in conversation with Chris Hirst, global CEO of Havas Creative Network as we talk straight about the state of our industry, calling out the attitudes and practices that need to change to make a difference to our future leaders and creatives.

Hirst will be discussing his smart fun book ‘No Bullshit Leadership: Why the World Needs More Everyday Leaders and Why That Leader is You’ which is out in May and presenting the five techniques you could take back and practice as a forward-thinking leader of future.

“There is an apocryphal tale of a renaissance sculptor who when asked how it was he managed to turn huge pieces of raw marble into objects of such beauty replied, ‘I simply chip away everything that I do not want’. The No Bullshit Leader also must chip away at everything she does not want in order to be able to maximise her and her team’s efforts where they will get the most return,” says Hirst.

We will also be playing a round of Bullshit Bingo! What’s your favourite way to bullshit?
