The INNOVATORS SUMMIT: Celebrating Today's Breakthrough Thinkers


INNOVATORS are critical to moving our business forward.

Every year since 2006, The Internationalist has named those agency executives who have the rare ability to rethink current notions of brand building by simplifying complex internal processes, encouraging collaboration, managing risk while working in the midst of fast change, keeping sight of "the big idea," championing multinational strategy, and involving customers directly in the creative process. Known as Innovators , they underscore how break-through thinking knows no bounds of geography, age, company size, or title within today's agency organizations.
