In Conversation with Francesco Grandi

He’s the (somewhat) brand spanking new CCO of Ogilvy Canada, fresh off his stint as Global Creative Director on Dove Masterbrand out of Ogilvy’s London office. With his time as CD at Saatchi UK as well as R/GA UK, not to mention his earlier days at Canadian agencies including TBWA, Cundari and Rethink, there’s no doubt Francesco Grandi has much wisdom to share. Please join ADCC Chair Andrew Simon for ‘In Conversation With’ the esteemed Mr. Grandi on Wednesday, December 7th at 12-1EST. It’s the perfect holiday gift to give yourself!

Francesco Grandi

Ogilvy Canada CCO

After 8 years in London and Amsterdam, Francesco returns to Canada as the new CCO of Ogilvy. He has worked on some of the most iconic brands in the world, and his latest Dove campaign ‘Toxic Influence’ took home a Gold Lion, 3 Bronze and 11 shortlists, including Titanium. The global film has been viewed over 120 million times and is on track to becoming the most successful in Dove Masterbrand history. But despite all the awards and accolades, his biggest achievement is still working for Andrew Simon back in 2013. In Francesco’s own words: “Working with Andrew is like being mentally caressed by ancient Hebrew creative gods. His creative muscles have creative muscles. His talent and impeccably chiselled jaw are unrivaled. And yes, Andrew paid me to say this.”
