Are You Part of the Talent Crisis?

Posted on the 22 June 2011 by Happygrc
I think the interviews coming out of Cannes are just as interesting as the winners. They might be more important, too.
Here's an interview with Ali Ali, the CD at Elephant Cairo. You've probably seen his "Never Say No to Panda" work.

He's got some interesting things to say on talent. Granted, it's an Egyptian view. Not everything he says will translate to job markets in Chicago or New York or LA. Or will it? Here's one of his more interesting quotes:
"Agencies need to downsize...You can't have a creative department of 40 people. I think that immediately means that 30 of them are not good."
What do you think of that?
