Andrew McLean, CEO of PHD (US), today visited with UGA students and faculty. McLean first spoke about the future of media in his talk "Media - Now and Beyond the Horizon." Specifically, McLean offered predictions about technology and media and challenged students to use technology more creatively.
McLean also was a featured speaker at Cannes Lions Night at UGA, hosted by UGA's Ad Club. He emphasized the importance of attending Cannes Lions and taking advantage of Grady's study abroad program to Cannes Lions.
"If you want to turbo-charge your career and entry into the profession," said McLean, "a week at Cannes Lions will do it."
During his visit, McLean also met with faculty, Dean Clark and Parker Middleton, and a select group of students interested in pursuing a media career.
