Kneebone bolsters Caxtons line-up

Co-founder of The Glue Society Jonathan Kneebone will be a guest speaker at the upcoming 2012 Caxtons Awards, joining renowned industry figures like Jeff Goodby, Derek Robson and Lee Clow.

Kneebone bolsters the Caxton's current guest speaker line-up which features Goodby, Silverstein & Partners founding partner and keynote speaker Jeff Goodby, managing partner Derek Robson and TBWA/Worldwide chairman and global director Lee Clow.

This year's awards will see Clow make a "virtual" appearence at the seminar via a live stream and interact with Goodby in its first 'Creative Legend' session. It will allow delegates to interact with the pair and hear some of their career highlights.

Goodby will also address the crowd in an individual session.

The Glue Society recently took home two titanium lions and two grand prix awards at this year's Cannes Lions Festival, and was founded in 1998 with creative Gary Freedman.

Kneebone will join a number of Australian speakers at the awards including media personality and Daily Telegraph journalist Joe Hildebrand, Fairfax journalist Nick McKenzie, Hopscotch Group managing director Troy Lum and Commonwealth Bank chief marketing and online officer Andy Lark.

PHD Australia strategy director Chris Stephenson and Special Group creative director Tony Bradbourne will also take the stage.

Caxton Committee Chairman Justin Drape said: “The Glue Society have been pioneers in our industry so it’s a real privilege to have Jonathan share his thoughts on creativity and storytelling at the seminar this year.”

The Caxtons Awards will be held between 12-14 October at Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays.
