The new leadership agenda

The impact of a global pandemic and recession, combined with racial injustice around the world, underscores the need for chief marketers to work together in the face of transformative change on a global scale. That’s why the ANA, in partnership with Cannes Lions and WARC, established the Global CMO Leadership Coalition.

To participate in the Coalition, please contact Nick Primola, EVP, Head of Industry Leadership and CMO Practice, ANA, at

Through our partnership with WARC, we have arranged to provide you with a complimentary sample copy of this month’s Global Ad Trends report, focusing on the impact of COVID-19 on global ad investment. You’ll find summaries of the latest ad spend projections by market, media and product vertical from WARC Data, alongside commentary from industry experts, to help you plan for 2020/2021. Download a sample report, which includes findings such as: 

  • Advertising investment is set to fall 8.1% – $49.6bn – worldwide this year
  • This year’s downturn will be softer than in 2009, when the ad market fell by 12.7% ($60.5bn)
  • Traditional media will fare far worse than online
  • Almost all product sectors will record a decline this year, with the most severe falls seen among travel & tourism (-31.2%), leisure & entertainment (-28.7%), financial services (-18.2%) and retail (-15.2%).
