Getting creative at #CannesLions: Day 3

By ‎@eleanordowling‎

#CannesLions was in full swing today, with festival attendees crowding the streets and attending a myriad of sessions on marketing, creativity and storytelling.

We live-tweeted three presentations this afternoon and heard from a great mix of speakers including musician Kanye West (@kanyewest), investor Ben Horowitz (@bhorowitz) and Coca-Cola’s SVP, Global Sparkling Brand Center Wendy Clark (@wnd).

The first session was “Technology, culture and consumer adoption: Learning to read the cultural landscape.” Translation CEO Steve Stoute (@SteveStoute) and @bhorowitz were joined on stage by surprise guest @kanyewest.

Next up was “Storytelling with story creators” hosted by the New York Times. Maureen Dowd (@NYTimesDowd) and Rebecca Eaton (executive producer of @DowntonAbbey) talked about the art of storytelling and what it takes to craft a memorable experience.

Wendy Clark delivered the next presentation and shared great insight from her marketing experience at Coca-Cola. She also revealed Coke’s real time strategy and the activations they’ve launched to celebrate the World Cup.

Check out the highlights from these sessions in the Tweet collection below:


Meanwhile, back at the Tweet Suite, @dronie was taking in all the action from above!


We wrapped up the day with another fun Vine video of one of tonight’s #CannesLions Grand Prix winners.

That’s it for now! Check back here tomorrow for our update on #CannesLions, day 4!
