“In the future, there will be no female leaders. There will just be leaders.”
This is what Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook, writes in her iconic, clarion-call- of-a-book, Lean In. That there is a gap between men and women at work is beyond doubt. It is what we do to bridge this gap that would make Sheryl’s, and millions of women’s shared dream, come to life.
Recently, we saw the launch of WPP Stella India, which is an initiative focused on drawing more women into leadership positions in India. The programme, meant to foster mentoring relationships for 9-12 months, is currently at the pilot stage.
9th July is Walter’s Day, the birthday of our founder, Walter Landor. On this day, Landor’s global offices conduct various creative activities to celebrate Walter’s bold spirit of adventure that lives on till today. This year, we at Landor Mumbai donned our aprons at Flavour Diaries in Bandra, where celebrity chef Anjali Pathak gave us a crash-course on cooking pasta.
Adobe Systems in partnership with Exchange4media, brought together a few industry leaders over a panel discussion to understand how they lead by design. The event was organised on 2nd May 2017 at Trident, BKC, Mumbai. The panel was a melting pot of client and creative agency experts, who shared their views on how design creates experiences and is a key business advantage in this agile world.
We’re thrilled to announce that the Landor family was awarded four Lions at the 2016 Cannes Lions International Festival
Lois Jacobs, CEO of Landor, reflected on the extraordinary strength and talent of the Landor network: “For the past two years we have been the most awarded branding and design consultancy at the Cannes festival. This shows not only the dedication and creativity of our designers, strategists, and client managers, but also the rigor and relevance of our work.”
Peter Knapp, chief creative officer at Landor, agreed: “I could not be prouder of our work this year. We’ve taken our past Cannes legacy and built upon it, showing that year after year, we continue to be both progressive and innovative in our field.”
