In this no-holds-barred, free-range Q+A, industry veterans openly discuss the questions that no one seems to ask but everyone wants to know. “What is your biggest failure?”; “When did you want to rage-quit your client?”; “What’s the strangest business advice you’ve ever taken?”; “What’s in your luggage?”: “Have you ever said ‘yes’ without thinking it through at all?” Think of it as lessons learned meets Survivor.
