New York, NY - Last week Saatchi & Saatchi New York hosted the seventh edition of its popular Ideas festival 7x7 (Seven by Seven). The program, which was an official Creative Week event, was hosted by SSNY CEO Durk Barnhill, and brought together seven extremely talented and diverse presenters.
The complete lineup of presenters included: Nick Carr (ScoutingNY.com), Taylor Mali (Poet & Educator), Orly Wahba (Founder, Lifevest Inside), Jen Rubio (Head of Social Media, Warby Parker), Gareth Goodall (Head of Planning, Saatchi & Saatchi NY), Sarah Austin (host, Pop17) and Spike Mendelsohn (Top Chef, Good Stuff Eatery). The group covered topics ranging from brands and kindness to the importance of dishwashing to a bustling Soho audience.
"7x7 is all about getting inspiration from places outside the advertising world," said Durk Barnhill, CEO of Saatchi & Saatchi New York. "This lineup gave us a lot of inspiration and a ton of entertainment. The crowd was great, the talks were awesome and we hope that everyone had a fun time and learned something new."
