Craig Davis, Rebekah Horne, Michelle Hutton and Lee Stephens for next Mumbrella Question Time

The next Mumbrella Question Time breakfast – our last of 2009 – will put together heavy hitters from advertising, online, PR and media.

The event will take place in Sydney on the morning of Thursday 26 November.  

The line-up is:

  • Craig Davis – co-chairman and creative director of Publicis Mojo. He is one of the world’s most respected creative leaders. Prior to his return to Australia, he was JWT’s global chief creative officer. His stated ambition is for the agency to compete on the global creative stage. His first few months has also seen the agency give a major focus to digital, including being the first in Australia to run a full scale trial of Google Wave.
  • Rebekah Horne – MD of MySpace Australia, NZ, UK & Europe and senior vice president of Fox Interactive Media. Horne was MySpace’s first employee in Australia. She has recently returned to Australia after a period based in London. Most recently MySpace launched MySpace Music in Australia.
  • Michelle Hutton – CEO of Hill & Knowlton Australasia and leader of H&K’s brand marketing communications practice across Asia Pacific. She is also a fellow of the Public Relations Institute of Australia. She has worked with clients such as Motorola, P&G, Adidas, Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg, Kraft, Unilever, Heinz-Wattie’s, Intel and Nokia.
  • Lee Stephens – Regional CEO of Aegis Media which includes in Australia media agencies Carat and Vizeum. He was previously CEO of one of Australia’s largest digital agencies eMitch and prior to that commercial director at Fairfax Digital.

This week’s Mumbrella Question Time saw PHD’s Mark Holden, AANA chairman Joe Talcott, DDB’s Matt Eastwood and Y&R Brands boss Nigel Marsh discuss topics from paid online content, to social media strategy, to their least favourite ads. The previous event – the first Mumbrella Question Time – saw Dejan Rasic of CRC, One Green Bean’s Kat Thomas, OMD boss Mark Coad and CommBank’s Mark Buckman debate a similar variety of issues.

Both events sold out, with a hefty waiting list for this week’s.
