IPG and WPP CEO's back to back in a special Advertising Week Europe super-session. A unique opportunity to hear back to back talks directly from the top as IPG Chairman sits down with Bank of America's Anne Finucane followed by an interview with WPP CEO Mark Read led by with Kathleen Saxton.


On both sides of the Atlantic, corporate leaders are increasingly stepping up to play an important role in solving some of society’s biggest challenges. Elevating initiatives around the UN Sustainable Development Goals – such as empowerment, diversity and inclusion, and sustainable development – is more important than ever for consumers, marketers, talent and investors. CNN Europe Editor Nina Dos Santos is joined in conversation with champions of empowerment and equality, IPG Chairman & CEO Michael Roth, and Bank of America Vice Chairman and Chair of Bank of America Merrill Lynch Europe, Anne Finucane.

A £300 million restructure, a radically evolved brand identity and a change in strategic direction, potentially blurring the traditional lines – where are WPP heading in the next decade?

Mark Read, the new leader at WPP, the world’s largest advertising and media group, became CEO under a global spotlight in September 2018. Promptly expediting the transformation of this immense ship, he has plans to return the business to growth.

Join Kathleen Saxton, founder & CEO of The Lighthouse Company and practising psychotherapist, for an in-depth, exclusive fireside chat with Mark, discussing his personal journey, vision for the future and how he will ensure success for the business, their enviable list of clients and the 130,000 people he leads.
