The announcement:

The Communications Council Announces ‘Circus’ Speakers round II

Former Gap marketer John Aylward, Hollywood Storyboarder Jeff Julian, Joseph Crump, SVP of Strategy & Planning Razorfish and Tom Uglow (Google Creative Lab) will be joining the line-up for the 2012 Circus Festival.

Circus speakers will cover areas such as global retail trends, the digital DNA of brands, and sustainability.

They will be speaking alongside contributors Nick Law (R/GA), Vince Frost (Frost Design) Faris Yakob (MDC and KBS+), Sarah Robb O’Hagan (Gatorade), and Rosanna Iacono, (Jurlique).

Tickets for ‘Circus 2012 are now on sale.

This year, the festival is introducing a Master Class stream which will get to the heart of the most innovative thinking in creative communications relevant to the day to day work of those in the industry. Further workshops have been confirmed with agency Wieden and Kennedy hosting a seminar, while Faris Yakob and colleague Rosie Siman, Social and Emerging Media Strategist will be hosting a Master Class focusing on innovation, idea generation and improved briefings and workshops.

CEO of The Communications Council, Margaret Zabel said: “From my own experience in the industry, I have found that to break new ground in communications, my team had to be exposed to international experts, trends and case studies to raise the bar on our own capability and expectations.  Up to now, only the Cannes Advertising Festival provided that kind of international and high quality exposure. However, Circus was successfully launched last year to create an inspiring, insightful world class forum on our doorstep.”

“The speakers we’ve secured hail from all different corners of the business, and different regions, promising to give us a rounded view of the way the industry is evolving.”
