The Masterclass by Josy Paul, CCO and Chairman of BBDO India, is part of the ‘What I’ve Learnt’ module, titled ‘Discovering your unique self’. In this session, Paul introduces the audience to three of his close friends: failure, rejection and embarrassment.
Paul explains how these three outliers can help build agencies, cultures and work that are celebrated across the world. With stories from his early years building David (the agency he began with Ogilvy in June 2000) to setting up BBDO India from the backseat of his car in 2008, to the inaugural Glass Lion Grand Prix at Cannes, to creating the most effective campaign in the world. Josy reveals the joys of losing, and how you can’t breakthrough until you break down. Paul believes that creativity and advertising is a great way to find who you really are.
