Must see


Jesse Jackson at Cannes

This year’s Cannes Global Festival of Creativity was certainly not without its share of controversy. From almost the moment one arrived to savour the famous Croisette, the sense of a very different Cannes experience was palpable.  For a start, one was hard pressed to find a creative agency logo amongst the tsunami of Accenture’s, IBM’s, Oracle’s and Deloitte’s flags crowding out the beach-side cabanas.

And if you took a wander down to the more subdued harbour area, most of the boats had been hired by obscure video/tech companies.
