We think it’s just sheer coincidence (on second thought, maybe not) but for those of you who want to avoid long-winded panels during Advertising Week, there are a couple of somewhat similar options thanks to CP+B and Saatchi & Saatchi New York. Depending on how bad your short-attention span is, the former is offering its “Six Minutes Each” event, which is a follow-up to the agency’s apparently popular “Five Minutes Each” panel at Cannes and lets you listen to Crispin’s top brass including Jeff Benjamin, Chuck Porter and Rob Reilly discuss hot industry topics.
Of course, if you can last an extra few minutes, there’s Saatchi’s event called “7X7,” where, you guessed it, you can hear seven people talk for seven minutes each. Saatchi’s offering has a more eclectic lineup than Crispin’s, though, as it features a range of guests from comedian Reggie Watts to Contagious director Jess Greenwood to this familiar face below. Hmm, which do you prefer, or would you rather just skip both?
