Simon Cohen, founder and MD of Global Tolerance, who is famously giving away his company to be a full-time dad, is amongst a host of distinguished and inspirational speakers appearing at the Cannes Lions conference – an annual festival in the South of France – which for the last 60 years has aimed to debate, teach and inspire.
Simon will talk about the departure process – how to let go of your company after pouring blood, sweat and a whole load of cash into setting it up. Simon, social visionary and entrepreneur, will expound his knowledge about successful exit strategies and harnessing the courage to make radical and life-changing decisions.
Every year the Cannes Lions lures the most creative minds and celebrates those pushing creative communications forward.
The complete speaker programme for 2014 has been announced, and the impressive line-up includes U2 frontman Bono, supermodel Giselle Bundchen, footballer Marcel Desailly, magician Dynamo, actor Ralph Fiennes, TED European director Bruno Giussani, creator of Veep and comedian Armando Ianucci, Spike Jonze, Bertrand Piccard, Jeffrey Katzenberg, actor Jared Leto, Sarah Jessica Parker, Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg, and the formidable Sir Patrick Stewart.
