I spent 2015 in Tokyo as co-ECD of a joint venture between Leo Burnett and Dentsu dedicated to McDonald’s Japan.
My partner and I managed a creative staff of 20 across two different offices, two different agencies and two different languages. A large part of our job involved helping the Japanese creative teams understand the needs of our Western clients, and vice versa. It was always challenging — often crazy :-) — but never boring. The work ranged from fully integrated campaigns to one-off TV spots. On a personal note, working and living in Tokyo was an amazing experience. I made some great friends there and return as often as I can.
