The Manny Awards were this week, and I have to tell you that it was a lot of fun. Sure, easy to say when your agency wins two big awards, especially when one of them is for Most Creative Agency. But the truth is that the awards were fun because they were so well produced and incredibly well attended.
It's not very often that the pharmaceutical industry gets together to recognize our own achievements. In a time of increased public distrust, economic despair, and workplace demands, it's refreshing to just simply acknowledge each other and say "hey, you do great work!"
As my Chief Creative Officer Helayne Spivak says, "when you're put in a box, make the box beautiful!"
Hope this finds you well -- Jim.
