DDB's Wendy Clark in conversation with Campaign India

DDB's global CEO: "I know what it feels like to be passed over for an opportunity."

There are global CEOs and then there is Wendy Ludlow Clark, global president and CEO, DDB Worldwide.

She started off as a receptionist in an agency, rising all the way up to the top. She is one rare example of someone who returned to agency life, after spending time at the client's end. Listen to her story with a liberal dose of leadership lessons, for the times that we live in.

At Campaign India, we strive to take our readers as close to the industry developments as possible and to tell stories in a real form, minus the veneer. Our series of Facebook Live sessions are an attempt in that direction.

Watch the live video interview with DDB's Wendy Clark here.
