    Tiffany Rolfe of R/GA - "The Creative Industries and AI - Part 7"

    What is it?
    This episode is the seventh in a series of conversations that I'm having in partnership with the Cannes Lion Festival of Creativity. For the weeks leading up to Cannes, we're focusing our study of leadership through a single lens. The impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Creative Industries.
    Are we moving fast enough? Are we going far enough? Is this an opportunity to fundamentally redesign the creative industries? Or do we adjust and iterate, slowly and carefully? Do we follow the puck, or skate to where it's going? There are opportunities and risks around every corner. Before we jump into this conversation, a couple of programming notes.
    I had originally intended to finish this series of conversations with this episode, and then to do a wrap up episode on my takeaways from the series. But I've got a chance to interview an industry legend at Cannes, and so I'm going to extend the series by one more. You'll hear that conversation at the end of Cannes next week. And then, the week after, we'll wrap up the series.
    Tiffany Rolfe is a mother, as well as the Global Chair and Global Chief Creative Officer at R/GA. I asked Tiffany to come back on the show because she is, as you'll hear, a self described tech optimist. She's also one of the most original thinkers that I know.
    Her professional journey has taken her from Executive Creative Director at Crispin Porter + Bogusky, to Chief Content Officer and Partner at one of the first agency consultancy hybrids, Co:Collective, to her role at R/GA. If you haven't heard our earlier episode in which she talks about the challenges of combining a demanding career with being a mother, it's a really powerful listen.
    In this conversation, one of the first questions that came up was, how should we think about AI?
    Stay tuned next week for our final conversation in the series. And in the meantime, thanks for joining us.

    Jamie Gutfreund of Creator Vision - "The Creative Industries and AI - Part 6"

    What do the artists think?
    This episode is the sixth in a series of conversations that I'm having in partnership with the Cannes Lion Festival of Creativity. For the weeks leading up to Cannes, we're focusing our study of leadership through a single lens. The impact of Artificial Intelligence on the Creative Industries.
    Are we moving fast enough? Are we going far enough? Is this an opportunity to redesign the creative industries? Or should we adjust and iterate, slowly and carefully? There are opportunities and risks around every corner.
    Jamie Gutfreund has seen the creative industries from many vantage points. She's the former Global Chief Marketing Officer for Hasbro and MGA Entertainment.
    She was Chief Growth Officer at Whalar and has been recognized by Forbes as one of the 50 Most Entrepreneurial CMOs.
    Today, she's the Founder of Creator Vision, a company that she describes as helping brands bridge the gap between the practice and the promise of the creator economy. At a time when the future is coming towards us faster than perhaps at any period in human history, gaining some advanced warning about what will happen next, would be welcome. To put it mildly.
    Is it conceivable that AI itself might give us the clues to how AI is going to change the world as we know it? Jamie thinks it's possible, if we look at it through the right lens. The artists' lens.
    At the end of the series, I'll offer some thoughts on what we've heard and learned, and where we might go from here.
    In the meantime, thanks for joining us.

Creativity discussed Creatively

I love this podcast! Charles brings such a fresh approach to these conversations. Long before he recaps his 3 takeaways, I always find that I learn so much from listening to the speaker, but also by listening to how he engages them in conversation. Charles is remarkably disarming, so these heavy hitters, who are well-prepped for media, are honest and authentic, and I sometimes wonder if they’re letting their guard down just a little bit without realizing it.

"Creative leadership" is such an oft-used term these days, that there is no clear definition for it. Charles illuminates various definitions by having insightful conversations and gleaning perspectives from some of today’s great creative leaders.
