    Advertising Will Save Us from Gun Violence, with Leo Burnett’s Sam Shepherd and Ashley Geisheker

    Can advertising’s immense power to change behaviour be used for good? In this brand new podcast, produced by Intelligence Squared, Myra Nussbaum, President and Chief Creative Officer at Havas Chicago and Dan Lucey, Chief Creative Officer at Havas New York, talk to the people who are harnessing the power of advertising to help people and the planet.

    This week, Dan and Myra were joined by Sam Shepherd and Ashely Geisheker from Leo Burnett in Chicago. Last year, Sam and Ashley were part of the team behind The Lost Class, a campaign to raise awareness about the members of the high school class of 2021 who were killed by guns. The film was produced by Leo Burnett in support of Change the Ref’s campaign to introduce universal background checks for gun sales. Among many other awards, it was nominated for an Emmy.

    Sam Shepherd is Executive Vice President and Executive Creative Director at Leo Burnett Chicago. He has received a host of top industry honours including Titanium Cannes Lions, D&AD Black pencils and Agency of the Year. He has worked with world class brands from HBO and BMW to Absolut Vodka and Oreo.

    Advertising Will Save Us from Being Pale, Male and Stale, with Founder of ONE School Oriel Davis-Lyons

    Advertising Will Save Us from Being Pale, Male and Stale, with Founder of ONE School Oriel Davis-Lyons

    Can advertising’s immense power to change behavior be used for good? In this brand new podcast, produced by Intelligence Squared, Myra Nussbaum, President and Chief Creative Officer at Havas Chicago and Dan Lucey, Chief Creative Officer at Havas New York, talk to the people who are harnessing the power of advertising to help people and the planet.
    This week, Dan and Myra are joined by Oriel Davis-Lyons, founder of the ONE School and Head of Creative (Podcast + Talk) at Spotify. Prior to joining Spotify, Oriel held roles at Droga5 and R/GA. He has won more than 100 awards including a D&AD Pencil in every colour except white, several Lions and three Webbys. 
    Oriel discussed the dissonance between the way in which the ad industry has historically profited from Black culture, yet employed few Black creatives, and explained how the prohibitive financial cost of entering the advertising industry means it has failed to reach beyond a narrow slice of the vast potential talent pool at its disposal. He also talked about how a frustrated post on LinkedIn in June 2020 led to the founding of the ONE School and how the school empowers Black creatives with the skills required to work at the top agencies.

    Advertising Will Save Us from Soulless Design, with former Nike Chief Marketing Officer Greg Hoffman

    Can advertising’s immense power to change behavior be used for good?

He also talked about how to fuel creativity and curiosity in the workplace and the importance of building diverse teams.

    The Futureverse: Undervalued – Is the Future of Art Female?

    The Futureverse: Undervalued – Is the Future of Art Female?

    Until very recently, female artists have occupied a tiny space of the art market, undervalued and ignored. There are no women in the top 0.03% of the auction market, where 41% of the profit is concentrated. Overall, 96.1% of artworks sold at auction are by male artists. The most expensive work sold by a woman artist at auction, Georgia O’Keeffe’s Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1, sold in 2014 for $44.4 million—over four hundred million dollars less than the auction record for a male artist: Leonardo Da Vinci’s Salvator Mundi, which sold in 2017 for $450.3 million, shattering the previous record of $179.4 million for a work by Picasso. 
    Now that’s changing. This year’s Venice Biennale was heavily skewed in favour of women for the first time ever. Historically, about 10% of artists in the main exhibition have tended to be women, rising to 30% in recent years; in 2019, the UK-based curator Ralph Rugoff’s exhibition achieved rough parity for the first time. Cecilia Alemani, curator of the 2022 Biennale, included approximately 90% female and gender non-conforming artists. 
    Who is driving this change? And how do we continue to make sure the work of female artists is given the recognition they deserve? Join Kamal Ahmed as he explores the role of women in the contemporary art market with art historian and broadcaster Katy Hessel, art historian and founder of ArtscapesUK Rose Balston, art market specialist Bojana Popovic, entrepreneur Marine Tanguy and patron and academic Princess Alia Al-Senussi.

    The Futureverse: Reimagining Worth

    The Futureverse: Reimagining Worth

    How do we define value? How has this changed over time? And who decides what is deemed valuable? For centuries, society has seen value mainly through an economic lens: one takes a job because of its monetary benefits; marriage is a financially beneficial relationship that enables stability; and the true test of a business is its profit at the end of the year. But is this changing? In recent years, factors such as climate change, social justice and the pandemic have forced us to reconsider how we define value. We are in the era of the Value Revolution.
    In this episode, recorded on July 5 at Y TREE's second live event in the Futureverse series, three experts discuss and debate some of the most pressing issues that have arisen as a result of this critical turning point: Will private equity transform the financial industry? Can capitalism really adapt so that things other than monetary value are considered important in business, including fairness and environmental impact? And are we finally seeing a growing awareness that value is not always quantified by a price tag? Some things, such as time, health, job satisfaction and the survival of our planet are surely worth more than a number in a bank account.  
    Simon Brewer, host of the award-winning Money Maze Podcast, gives us his thoughts on the dramatic shifts in the economy over the last few decades. Political economist and author Adrienne Buller argues that businesses that engage in sustainability initiatives and ‘green capitalism’ are harming rather than helping the planet. And Lucy Kellaway, former FT columnist, now charity founder, author and maths and economics teacher, offers a fresh way to decide what to prioritise in our personal and professional lives. Expertly hosted by broadcaster Jon Sopel, this is a conversation that is guaranteed to change the way you think about value and worth.

    The Futureverse: Moonshots In the Making

    The Futureverse: Moonshots In the Making

    The future can look like a scary place. Climate change is upon us and we’re in the throes of huge technological change without a clear idea of where we will land. Added to which, we are constantly bombarded by news of the risks we face. 
    But humans are creatures of collaboration and ingenuity. Sure, we might spend a lot of time focusing on external threats rather than appreciating what we have – but that survival instinct helps protect us. And it inspires many of our brightest minds to focus on de-risking the future, engaging with our problems head on and working to make the future a safer, better place for the generations that will follow.
    Step into the Futureverse, with Juha-Pekka Luntama, Head of Space Weather at the European Space Agency; Prof. Dr. Sibylle Günter, Scientific Director of the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics; Holden Karnofsky, co-CEO of Open Philanthropy; and Kevin Warwick, Emeritus Professor of Cybernetics at Coventry and Reading Universities.
