On this episode of The CMO Podcast, Jim Stengel recaps this year's Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, with a panel of remarkable guests. This episode was recorded over a Zoom session organized by VaynerMedia with roughly 150 marketers in attendance. A big thanks to Suzanne Fanning from Wisconson Cheese for sending participants a wonderful cheese spread for this virtual event, and Gary Vaynerchuk for sending a bottle of Empathy Wine to pair with it. 

First, we hear from Steve Latham, the Head of Talent & Training at Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, for an overview of the five-day virtual event. Then, Jim chats about some major takeaways from the event with Pedro Earp from Anheuser-Busch InBev, Hana McTaggart from Loon, Shannon Taylor from Procter & Gamble, Amanda Rassi from The Kroger Co., Garrett McGuire from Merrell and Gary Vaynerchuk from VaynerX and VaynerMedia.
