Inside the Mind of Grand Brand Genius Fernando Machado

Hosted by AMA Marketing Hall of Fame inductee Antonio Lucio, the Adweek Home / Work podcast breaks down the good, bad, ugly and extraordinary of balancing life and work. Tune in.


Two-time Brand Genius Honoree and last year’s Grand Brand Genius, Fernando Machado is synonymous with bold campaigns.

So what has Fernando been up to since his win? Well, since then you’ve likely seen a continued string of daring BK ads – but here, Fernando shares BK’s latest focus on tech and cleaning things up, advice for brand marketers and where you can find him when he’s not working on genius campaigns.
