Not too shabby. Please join ADCC President Andrew Simon for a very special Zoom conversation with Chris and learn all about the special sauce that makes Rethink, and Chris, so unique. It all goes down on Wednesday June 10th at 2PM EST. This event will be held using Zoom. Attendees will receive a link to the Zoom meeting the morning of June 10th.

Chris Staples

Chris Staples is one of Canada’s leading creative thinkers. He is currently the number-one ranked creative director in the country, along with his partner Ian Grais. He has held that title an unprecedented 10 times over the last four decades. Chris has an honours degree in journalism from Carleton University in Ottawa. He started his career in Edmonton, before moving to Vancouver in 1990 as a writer with Palmer Jarvis (now DDB). Three years later he was creative director, helping lead that shop to three Agency of the Year titles in five years. He’s won a slew of national and international awards, and has served as a judge at Cannes (twice), the Clios (twice), the One Show, D&AD and the Communications Arts Annual. In 1999, Chris started Rethink with Ian Grais and Tom Shepansky. Today he serves on the Rethink Board of Directors, helping guide the company’s overall strategic and creative direction. In his spare time he travels incessantly and watches far too much reality television.
