Putting Our Campaigns in the Hands of Our Customers

Last year, when I left Cannes Lions Health, I wondered when the technology explosion would truly begin to trickle down into the hands of the average patient in the waiting room. I left the 2016 festival feeling the same way.

Where Has All the Social Gone?

There is no place more social than Cannes. (Just spend an evening at The Gutter Bar.) And, yet, when it comes to creative ideas using social media, social didn’t really show up on the pharma shortlist this year.

What I Learned at Lions Health

Healthcare promotion strikes me as a cozy little business sometimes, with our webs of contacts and clients, strongly strung in a specialized space. Nowhere did I feel this more than at Cannes, where Lions Health, in its own building at the Palais, gave us a chance to renew friendships and make new contacts easily, fueled by the appropriately sized venue and the gallons of pink wine.

Lions Health Takeaways: A Perspective from the Account Management Side

More than any other awards program or conference, Lions Health makes me think about the work we do and ask: What is good? What is great? What is, in fact, Lion-worthy? For me, the best part of the festival is the discussion, debate, and even arguments we have with each other, especially about that last point.

It’s tough times on Medicine Avenue. But, by aiming to achieve one simple, straightforward metric, I’d argue we could turn every one of those challenges around. That metric is winning a Cannes Lion.

We can’t taste test healthcare

Recurring themes explored at Lions Health this year included empathy. The term was tossed around in all sorts of contexts – health bias, gaps in care, disease stigma, aging. For the most part, it was centered on better understanding between the health industry and people in health crisis. For me, as a creative leader and armchair strategist, empathy is most powerful in connecting ideas to audiences.

Lions Health: Things can only get better

Lions Health. Year three. The first thing I noticed on arriving at the Palais is that there is a new-found permanence to the event. It was bigger and better provided for than in the previous two years. And, although it’s still small when compared to the Festival as a whole, this year Lions Health felt less like a side-show and more like a legitimate extension of the burgeoning Cannes brand itself. So far, so good.

Lions Health Takeaways: Mentor. Mentee. New momentum

Lions Health Takeaways: Thinking about our business through rosé-colored glasses

They say it’s the light in the south of France that attracted so many of our favorite artists – Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse, and Leger, among others – all drawn to those magical low hills tumbling into the sea, bathed in a uniquely clear and warm light. But writers came there also – were Fitzgerald and Baldwin also mesmerized by the light, or was it the calm that allowed their creative minds to run free?

Musings from Cannes – Healthcare Communications – is the engine running out of fuel?

I guess most people coming from Cannes might be struck by the latest trends in healthcare communications – the penetration of digital, the rise of the informed patient and the continued dominance in the prizes of ‘Good Causes’ rather than product promotion. However for me the biggest and most dominant theme that emerged both in observing the attendees, and also in talking to my peers across the industry from all specialties and geographies, was talent – or to be precise the lack of it.
