Here’s the link to my ‘Five Minutes With’ interview published by Little Black Book Online on January 21, 2016;
Talking diversity, creative hotspots and nurturing leadership with the Global CEO of The Talent Business; Forget platforms, secret algorithms and proprietary processes – the advertising industry’s most important asset is its people. That’s something that Gary Stolkin is all too aware of – he is Global CEO of The Talent Business, after all. There are eight offices around the world, a new shop in Los Angeles is imminent, and the New York office has recently quadrupled in size; there’s an appetite for visionary leaders around the world. Specialising, as he does, in C-suite level talent also gives Gary a unique perspective on where the industry is ‘at’ and where it’s going. He’s also got a view on what it needs to do to ensure that its anointed rising rock stars have what it takes to be true leaders, capable of steering their agencies through the turbulent waters of the 21st century. Basically, he’s the man you want to talk to if you want to get your head round the big picture. LBB’s Laura Swinton caught up with him to pick his brains about… well… everything.
