COUNTDOWN TO CAXTONS IN QUEENSTOWN, NZ: ONLY A FEW PLACES LEFT SO BOOK NOW
Queenstown, get ready, here we come. A stellar speaker line-up has now been confirmed for the 2006 Caxton Weekend Seminar, the first trans-Tasman Caxton, which will be held at Millbrook Resort, Queenstown, New Zealand from 22-24 September.
The international guest speaker this year is Alan Russell, Chief Creative Officer, DDB Canada (pictured top left).
Originally from Manchester, England, Alan moved to Vancouver, Canada in 1979 to join Baker Lovick BBDO as a Senior Writer/Associate C.D.
Six years later, he became ACD at Palmer Jarvis, (now DDB Canada), where many of his campaigns helped establish the agency as the creative force it is today.
Alan was Strategy Magazine’s top-ranked copywriter for five consecutive years, #1 Creative Director for two years and in 2003 was named in Advertising Age’s List of Top 10 Creatives.
He has been a juror at Cannes, Clios and New York Art Directors Club, while his tally of awards includes Cannes Lions, One Show pencils, C.A., Clios , ANDYs and London International.
Outside of advertising, his interests include travel, hiking, theatre, Indian curries, music, Kilkenny beer and, foolishly, still attempting to play senior men’s soccer.
