Nick Constantinou Q and A

What are you looking forward to most about the event?

Listening to others talk about the future. Only one thing is for sure. The best way to predict the future is to invent it:)

What particular opportunities in the Digital Revolution excite you the most?

Any idea that genuinely makes someone life easier, invokes an emotion, gets people talking, entertains & generally adds value.

What is the most unthinkable, unimaginable concept you can think of happening in the future with regards to the industry?

That 90% of all advertising communications all of a sudden becomes brilliant. Too many businesses sell a process, not the work. Sad face.

If you could have one super power to sort out all the problems you see, what would it be and how would you use it?

Super Relevant Man. Bit like bullshit man. He would eradicate all the jargon and bullshit in our industry. He asks…is the work relevant?
