On manhood…

Remember Mark Pollard?

He used to be strategy director at MCann Sydney and headed to the US to work at Saatchi & Saatchi. Nowadays he’s VP of strategy at agency Big Spaceship.

TEDx has just published this somewhat confronting video of his talk at TEDx Hackensack.

It turns out Pollard’s still awesome.

Makes you think that being a good strategist comes from living life, doesn’t it?

  30. Hi,

    Actually it was my TEDx event in Hackensack not Hoboken. Totally separate towns. He was amazing and it was an honor for us to have him at our event.

  34. good on him! Pity it wasn’t delivered in Australia… American dudes talk about their emotions a lot more than Aussie blokes.
