Episode 42: Euan Jarvie, EMEA President @ IRI Worldwide
Planet Driven Brands Podcast Euan Jarvie.
At the time of recording Euan was the CEO, UK & Ireland at Advertising giant Dentsu Aegis.
Euan is passionate about the societal and cultural shift that is required for change and he explains the Black Lives Matter effect on the public opinion – “intolerant of intolerance”
With over 30 years experience leading client service agencies, Euan’s insight is crucial as the industry goes through change.
Here is his story; whereby he has travelled from being the ‘token jock’ to learning about ‘real’ prejudice from his own mentor, “a black lady from SE London”
These experiences have helped form strong opinions on how advertising tackles its own problems of prejudice and (lack of) diversity.
In doing so he projects his own mantra – #Contribution-not-commnetary.
He wants clients to ‘stop talking about doing good, but not doing better’ and warns that competition and commercialism in contracts is actually holding back evolution and progress in achieving sustainable goals.
His family and many colleagues have played an important part in his story and as he says:
“You’re only here for a short period of time. Be that in a career or in life in total and therefore your only real responsibility is not to muck it up for the people coming after you!”
Here, in Planet Driven Brands Podcast Euan Jarvie shares some powerful thoughts as to how we can guard against doing just that!
