2. Spence will remain chairman and will focus on new biz (and promoting his book “It’s Not What You Sell, It’s What You Stand For: Why Every Extraordinary Business Is Driven by Purpose”)
Who says being an intern at an ad agency is all fluff? GSD&M makes their interns think about deep things…deep things like What color do I feel like painting my nails?
I love Interns! (Not in a Bill Clinton way, though.)
“GSD&M Idea City CEO Roy Spence will debut and talk about his new book IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SELL, IT’S WHAT YOU STAND FOR: Why Every Extraordinary Business is Driven by Purpose (which doesn’t hit bookstores nationwide until February 9th: BookPeople will be on hand, selling copies)
