Springboard your career

Early in his career, working as a creative for FCB Brazil, Icaro Doria attended Cannes Lions for the first time. After being selected to participate in the Young Lions competition, his team won Bronze. The experience led to a chain of events that saw him receive a job offer where he relocated to New York, before realising his ambition to open Wieden+Kennedy Brazil.

Icaro maintains that the last 16 years of his career springboarded from that one week, in June, in 2005.

Simply too incredible to put into words. I gained invaluable tips, skills and advice directly from industry leaders. I left a better person and an improved creative.
