Dominic Walsh, Managing Director at Landor on better leadership and business meeting creativity

November 12, 2016

G’day Giants you are listening to episode number 36 – as I’m recording this I’m about one-third through my 2-month USA speaking tour. So far have covered Las Vegas, LA, San Fran, Jacksonville, Orlando and even a side trip to Mexico. I still have New York, South Carolina, Kansas, West Michigan and Seattle to visit. All part of launching my second book; How to get a mentor as a designer, guaranteed. The full list of my tour can be seen on click the events page and if I’m my visiting your city or am nearby – please come along, I’d really love to see you there.

I’m also doing my best to document my day to day journey via Snapchat and Instagram stories, so if you’d like a sneak peek into my travels, you can add me on my handle: @TheGiantThinker

Now, to introduce today’s guest, he is the Managing Director of Landor, Australia. He’s had over 20 years experience in marketing, branding, and communications. He started his career in advertising with Clemenger BBDO, then McCann-Erickson where his clients included Unilever, Nestle, and Bacardi. He’s also held leadership positions at Blue Marlin and Interbrand.

Some of the topics we spoke about include:

  • Advice on becoming a great leader
  • Tips on managing staff
  • How to better commercialise innovative ideas
  • And how brands can be more agile

I present to you … the highly proficient and modest, Dominic Walsh!
