  • Watching on EK from Nice to Dubai. Go boys go! Thanks Emirates!!!! And for backup feed ,
  • So called global mag propagating a US-centric view of the world. There are great CMOs outside the US ,
  • Everytime I step in I instantly regret it. Appalling service. Dirty stores. Awful coffee. Dreaming of St Ali and Dukes right now,
  • To be clear - when ordering anything large or Venti at Starbucks you are ordering a MILKSHAKE with some coffee ,
  • Further spotlighting the Wallabies Woes ,
  • Like wo has tapes anyway? Or even a tape recorder? Or a tape player? Or a fax? ,
  • RH: respect the opportunity you have @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Stay humble. Work hard. What happened yesterday has no relevance to today or next week. Don't wait for chance. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH: companies matter in terms of getting stories out to people. @Cannes_Lions,
  • RH points to Trad media co's entering OTT ... @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: nothing bad happens that doesn't have some good associated with it @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: Eventually will be a NFL team in London @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft: The future is OTT - which means goodbye TV as we know it. Mobile + streaming + integration with games = winner @Cannes_Lions,
  • Kraft is concerned middle class not doing as well as they should. So right @Cannes_Lions,
  • The hard thing and the right thing are the same thing. Kraft @Cannes_Lions,

The Rise of Social Power

Just got to reading this killer piece of writing by David Kirkpatrick. Thought this quote captured the piece well:

The institutions of modern developed societies, whether governments or companies, are not prepared for this new social power. People are changing faster than companies. “I don’t think it’s crazy to ask if your CEO is the next Mubarak,” says Gary Hamel, one of business’ most eminent theoreticians of management. “The elites—or managers in companies—no longer control the conversation. This is how insurrections start.” Says Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce.com, Inc. : “This isn’t just about Arab spring. This is about corporate spring.”
