Beijing, May 10th 2014: The International Advertising Association announced the recipients of its most prestigious global industry awards to Ms Indra Nooyi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo and Mr John Wren, President and Chief Executive Officer of Omnicom Group, at its 43rd IAA World Congress, taking place this week in Beijing.
Faris Abouhamad, IAA Chairman and World President and Heather Leembruggen, IAA Vice President and Chair of the IAA Awards Committee declared “The IAA Award is presented to an individual in recognition of outstanding services in the field of international advertising and marketing. It was previously known as the “Annual Award” and was presented each year from 1951 to 1984. It then became a biennial award, presented on the occasion of the IAA World Congress. The IAA did not hold awards in 2012, so this year we have honored two recipients – Ms Indra Nooyi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PepsiCo and Mr John Wren, President and Chief Executive Officer of Omnicom Group.” Continue reading

I will be remembered for my love of the industry and its diminishing champions, for placing Kuwait on the world map of graphic design, for my SCR initiatives and my exhilarating experience of swimming against the current fearlessly fighting for the truth and rejecting the statuesque by documenting the factual standing of creativity in the Arab region on www.bloganubis.com by wiping the dirt off the mirror, industry practitioners could take a clearer look and see how it has aged disgracefully.
My legacy lives on through the veins of likeminded nomad warrior tribes of passionate professionals all over the world, whom commence positive change at every point of their journey guided by their moral compass and equipped with inherent valor, honor and the courage to lead. While most drink from wells they didn’t dig, we drink from our own wells dug through the dirt and rocks with bleeding nails mixed with our sweat. It is an honor to live by their side and together we leave this industry better than we first found it.
I left hope, a definition of purpose and a model to mimic. I left behind friendship. “Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds.” – Orison Swett Marden. 😉
