The latest AdNews magazine, with a cover by VCCP, has landed and we’re taking a close look at how the pandemic has impacted the sector more than six months in.

When the pandemic first forced Australia into lock down, many were scrambling to adjust, from working from home, meeting new client demands and the mental strain of being physically isolated. Now, as we become familiar with the new “COVID normal”, we speak to people right across the industry to see what has, and hasn’t, changed.

We speak to WPP AUNZ CEO Jens Monsees, Nine CEO Hugh Marks, S4 Capital's Sir Martin Sorrell, the global CMO for Deloitte Matt McGrath and more for their insights.

This issue also features the 2020 Emerging Leaders, as well as the judges behind the list. You can see the full list here.

For this issue’s Meet the Team we sit down with the newly launched TikTok Australia team. Commercial general manager Brett Armstrong tells us how the video-sharing app has continued its impressive rise despite pressures from governments and competitors.

Elsewhere in the magazine, we chat to experts, including Facebook’s Naomi Shepherd, about the rise of ecommerce on social media during lockdowns.
