TBWA puts a feather in its cap

AGENCY REPORT CARD: See TBWA's overall grade and our detailed report breaking down its 2019 performance in terms of leadership, creativity, innovation, business growth, and people/diversity initiatives.

TBWA puts a feather in its cap

TBWA’s entire ethos around being ‘brave’ like pirates continues to be effectively channelled into powerful creative work from all corners of Asia-Pacific. From Oxford street LGBTIQ+ celebrations with ANZ in Australia, to TBWA/Hakuhodo playing Para ping pong in Japan to Media Arts Lab’s emotive Apple films for Chinese New Year out of Shanghai, TBWA continues to fire on all creative cannons.

Refocusing on TBWA’s creative core is very much a priority for incoming CEO Sean Donovan, as TBWA continues to deliver an array of new specialisms and product offerings as it courts new business and tries to keep up a winning culture. 

How did TBWA respond to the challenges it faced in APAC in 2019?
