"Attending the Academy solidified for me that 'good work' can always be better. That the 'goosebump' test is a true validator of brilliant and emotionally resonant work. And that compelling stories transcend any language or geographical boundaries. Even 7 years later have continued to pull inspiration from Cannes Lions – whether it be creative inspiration for our team now or simply the confidence to always push for more and not settling for 'good'".
