Effie Canada 2021 recognizes only campaigns that have made a real business impact, a role that each of the Co-Chairs believes is more essential than ever.
Arthur Fleischmann said: “In the context of an accelerated world, Effie’s rich history of being the most prestigious effectiveness awards competition globally has never been more important. Those advertisers that can prove a critical link, a demonstrable cause and effect, between great creativity and their business performance have never held such an advantage.”
Susan O’Brien added: “The big theme of 2020, for me, was the need for greater agility. The agility with which our brand moved to focus on digital channels, really standing up to the challenge in adversity, made me realize that you can do anything if you really have the drive to succeed.”
