OMD FWD w/c 12th March

“Our time is now so let’s make it count!”
Those were the closing words at last week’s Omniwomen UK Summit. Aptly held on International Women’s Day, the annual summit gave the Omnicom network the chance to hear the personal stories and perspectives of inspiring speakers and industry leaders, and debate the big issues. As OMD EMEA’s Natalie Marshall Foxwell wrote, “It’s also a catalyst for change that can, and must, benefit everyone.”

Many brands also chose to mark #InternationalWomensDay, including KFC which changed its logo to ‘Claudia Sanders’ for the day to celebrate its female workers.

This week people from all over the world, including Elon Musk and Sadiq Khan, flocked to Austin for SXSW 2018. OMD’s Chrissie Hanson and Mark Murray-Jones have been busy reporting from the front lines for OMD – you can check out Chrissie’s daily recaps on the blog here.
