Mari Kim Novak, President, Advertising Week: Back to the basics
2017 was a tough year but I am optimistically looking forward to 2018 and writing down my New Year's resolution is surprisingly simple.
Let's to go back to the basics: treat people as I expect to be treated; be kind, and respect each other's points of views.
Also, it's a time to remind myself and others the effect we can have in being supportive and be a great listener; standing up for what is right, and the power of setting a good example.
I have never been more proud to be women in business, especially an executive woman in business and to be able to work at Stillwell Partners to produce Advertising Week across the globe to offer a platform to drive critical conversation, showcase great thinking, demonstrate technology and innovation and having the difficult discussions that are so critical to allow change. We cannot shy away from what 2017 has uncovered and so I am committed to helping cause change and find a solution to come together as an industry to educate, enlighten, heal, and evolve as needed.
Bring it on 2018 – I am ready and willing to help.
