We went to Cannes to hold a workshop, deliver a talk, and get inspired.
We also ended up…
Joining Pussy Riot
Sneaking on to a few yachts
Pretending to be in Clueless with Alicia Silverstone
Leaning in with Sheryl Sandberg
Seeing most of our colleagues in their togs

We had a week that showed us the infinite possibilities of a great idea. Cannes was a week of cans. Here’s a few of our favourite moments from a week that has too many to mention.

Arriving in to that sweet (and sweaty) Cannes sun!

Owning our bit of the beach! (Shade essential for the Irish folk)

Our founding partner Patrick Ronaldson speaking on stage with AIB’s Tom Kinsella and Brian Keating, telling the story behind The Toughest.

Sarah and Emer holding the ‘You are Dumber that you think’ workshop.

Rob Flaherty, CEO of Ketchum, creating this amazing illustration at the workshop.

Sarah and Emer feeling so pumped from their workshop that they try to join feminist protest punk rock group Pussy Riot.

Our Young Lions Laura and Conor working on a Cannes Competition brief.

The moment that Sheryl Sandberg became our new Beyonce.

Our Jimi getting tips on the beach from Fernando Machado, Senior VP of Burger King. “Never get sidetracked by the chanel or trend. It’s about the idea. That will never change.”

Seeing inspiration pretty much everywhere we went.


Richard, Jill and Rono soaking up the last of the sun.

All the other photos are not suitable for sharing on the internet. It’s the togs thing.

Cannes, you were beautiful.
