Sydney will be hosting the 5th edition of Advertising Week, a week-long global celebration of marketing and advertising. During 30 July – 2 August, thought leaders from Sydney and around the world will gather to discuss emerging technologies, innovations, and key business trends.
Today, Advertising Week APAC is proud to announce the first speaker during Advertising Week APAC, Chuck Porter. Chuck shared his thoughts on the announcement: "So I’ve been to the Advertising Weeks in New York, London and Tokyo and they’re great, but I told them I’m not going again until they have one in Sydney. Apparently it worked."
In 1998, Chuck joined the Crispin Agency as Creative Director and Partner, after a career as an award-winning freelance copywriter. The Crispin Agency was then renamed Crispin & Porter, and after three years, it doubled in size and became one of the top 15 creative shops in the US. Aside from being one from the most awarded agencies in the world, CP+B was also awarded Agency of the Decade by Advertising Age under Chuck’s leadership.
Not only has Chuck served as a leader at CP+B, he has also been a judge or jury chairman at the Clios, the Andy Awards, the D&AD Awards and Cannes, Chairman of the 4A’s and co-chairman of Advertising Week. Chuck also serves as an advisor to the Future of Advertising Project at Wharton, as well as co-founder of the Boulder Digital Works Institute at the University of Colorado. Chuck has also been named one of Inc. Magazine’s “Entrepreneurs We Love,” along with Martha Stewart and Michael Dell, and was inducted into the Advertising Hall of Fame.
