Cindy Gallop is ace.
If you’re familiar with her work, you’ll already know that.
If not, you soon will.
She’s worked with, studied under and helped nurture some of the best in the advertising business.
After joining ad agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH) in 1989, she went on to launch their US branch.
And these days she’s leading the social sex revolution by changing the way people talk about sex, as well as calling out gender biases in the ad industry and supporting those who want to change it.
Her TEDtalk has been watched millions of times (even though it was banned on their site until recently) and she speaks at events around the world inspiring thousands of people to make a difference.
As I say, she’s a bit ace.
So it’s an absolute pleasure to have her as my guest for EP.20 of The All Good Copy Podcast.
We spoke about her creative process, why there isn’t enough change happening in the ad industry and the one thing she recommends you get more of if you want to be creative.
We also talked about her apartment being used by P Diddy, her biggest influences in the industry and the challenges she faces in changing the perception of social sex.
It all makes for a great listen and I hope you thoroughly enjoy it.
If you do it would be appreciated enormously if you could take the time to leave a nice review on iTunes. Seriously – thank you if you take the time. And thanks to those who already have.
