Great Minds Unite for a Great Cause at BBH NY

Strategy geeks, listen up: BBH New York recently announced a call for submissions for the agency’s second annual Griffin Farley Search for Beautiful Minds program, a three-day mentorship shebang during which aspiring planners can participate in a showcase and pitch their ideas to top strategists from across the industry.

Though it’s too late to submit an entry, the public is invited to attend the event. The program, led by Chief Strategy Officer Sarah Watson, is not only a great way to jumpstart young careers, but also memorialize late BBH New York strategy director Griffin Farley, who lost his life to cancer last year (as you’ll see above, Farley was known as a champion of nurturing young talent).

Finalists and up-and-comers will pitch their ideas in teams to Kitchen Surfing on July 30th, where a winning team will be crowned the Beautiful Minds. Click here for tickets…and let the head games begin.
