This 2023 special edition of Transatlantic, hosted by Simone Nobili, brings you Season 2 of Ocean’s 17, crossing the oceans of the 17 London International Awards Jury Presidents!
Named OCEAN’S 17, in honor of the 2007 American film, Ocean’s 13, directed by Steven Soderbergh that was set in Vegas, this season was filmed live at Encore/Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas, from 7th through 15th October 2023 running concurrently with LIA judging.
In a room where red was the dominant color and casino chips were scattered across a coffee table, Simone Nobili used “The 7 Seas Interview” format to dive deep into the lives and works of his guests, bringing to the surface undiscovered stories.
Season 2, Episode 3 features Susan Credle, Global Chair/Global Chief Creative Officer of FCB Worldwide.
A note of raw emotions hang suspended in the air above the noise, upheld by strings of knowledge, resilience and a profound care for everything that breathes creativity. Susan embodies the essence of what exceptional advertising should resemble.
REFLECTIONS FROM 2023 CREATIVE COACHING BY MENTEE: CANDICE SOSIONG, COPYWRITER, ODDEFY CREATIVE, MAKATI CITY
The Creative LIAisons mentorship program was truly one for the books! Every second was a blast, absorbing everything my coaches mentioned and taking down notes as much as I could to review and apply them to my work. As someone who is fairly new and raw to this creative and exciting industry, I’m truly grateful for this program for getting young creatives like me fired up and inspired to explore what’s next. I’m beyond grateful for the experience and hope to meet all my coaches in person someday!
Shoutout to Coach Toby Talbot, Chief Creative Officer AUNZ Ogilvy Australia!
Thank you for molding me to become a better writer.
I’m truly honored for you letting me come up with my own ideas and critiquing them on how I can improve it further. Thank you for imparting knowledge on how to be more clear and direct to the point in writing scripts (especially headlines) to really communicate the message better. I’ll carry on your advice about focusing on insights and bringing them to life, about articulating ideas better, about starting with small ideas first and turning them into something huge.
Shoutout to Coach Samira Rafi, Creative Director, Boomerang Communication, Casablanca!
Thank you for pushing me to become a confident creative thinker.
You taught me to never be shy about sharing your ideas with anyone and to never let fear stop you from unleashing your inner creativity. You made me realize that sometimes it’s about perspective and looking at things differently, because maybe it’s about generating new alternatives or approaching old concepts in new ways. To go crazy. Mix things around. Have fun. To just truly enjoy the process and to not doubt yourself along the way.
Shoutout to Coach Vinicius Stanzione, Executive Creative Vice President at Leo Burnett Tailor Made, São Paulo!
Thank you for inspiring me to become a better creative in our industry.
Whether it’s being updated with recent trends or paying attention to people’s lifestyles, that may just be the spark that you’re looking for to start a great idea, because when you listen more, you’ll learn more. I remember you advised me to just put in the work and the rest will follow. Don’t mind all the possible errors that might come up and just write before fixing anything, because it’s better to be hardworking without natural talent than to have talent, but not put in any work or effort at all.
And of course, a huge thanks to LIA!
Thank you for making this happen and connecting us to some of the world’s greatest!
