Coblentz Signature Events: Rise&Shine

Coblentz has enjoyed a close relationship with the advertising and creative services community for many years through our robust advertising practice, which advises clients on all aspects of working in the creative services space.

In 2010, Coblentz first presented a morning program where advertising and creative services industry leaders and visionaries could share their insights and experiences, featuring notable speakers from agencies and creative services firms that speak on a variety of topics of interest to the industry. Rise&Shine has been a signature event from Coblentz for eleven years running.

Historically a live event, we were happy to be able to bring our advertising and creative services community together online for 2020. For our 11th annual program, we featured two leaders in American advertising to share their insights: John Patroulis, the Worldwide Chief Creative Officer of Grey Group, discussed the importance of putting creativity first in the business model, and Andrew Hall, Principal of Lumsden Partners, gave us 30 thoughts on COVID-19 and its economic impacts in the industry.
