Simply put, Creative LIAisons was one of the most inspiring and insightful experiences of my career so far, and I'm very thankful to have been a part of it. I got to sit in on seminars with topics ranging from trends of winning work, to how the brain thinks creatively, to how to be happy in advertising. I got to witness Amir Kassaei, the Worldwide Chief Creative Officer of DDB talk about Volkswagen just weeks after the scandal. I got to sit with my Global CCO and a half a dozen world-renowned Creative Directors as they discussed the year's best work. And the only part of me that paid for it was my liver.
