Colin Kennedy

Colin Kennedy CEO

Movie buff, still a creative at heart

What’s your own true story?
Two decades as an entertainment editor. Launched mags and websites. Worked in a newsroom for Metro. Redwood is my first agency job. Came as a creative, now CEO. 
 
What makes Redwood different?
It’s that Journalism x Creativity mix. I am far from the only person to have worked in both worlds. 
 
Why do you focus so much on True Stories?
Because that’s what journalism at its best offers – a search for deeper truths. And the truth is if your brand needs a 30-second fiction then there are better agencies for that. We like to keep it real.
 
You’re a creative and CEO. Why is the idea of Creative Leadership so important?
First of all, we don’t think creativity is the job of one department. But yes, creative leaders in consumer media are expected to make commercial decisions and we think that letting them do that for our clients delivers more speed, more clarity and more value.

Dan Jude - Global Creative Lead, Google & YouTube

Dan Jude Global Creative Lead, Google & YouTube

What’s your own true story?
 
Former magazine editor, start-up CMO and creative strategist. Now in my second stint at Redwood, this time heading up Google & YouTube globally – the fastest growing account in the agency’s 36-year history.
 
What makes Redwood different?

We’re not a pure content agency, we’re not an ad agency. We’re truly integrated – with deep storytelling at the heart. Oh, and the people. No one ever leaves for good, myself included – there’s a reason why.
 
Why do you focus so much on True Stories?

Because there’s enough noise out there, and I don’t believe we should add to the clutter. Telling true stories allows us to contribute something meaningful to culture, to feed the conversation with something real in an age of clickbait, ephemeral advertising and fake news.
 
Global Creative Lead – how is that different from Creative Director?
 
Based on my own varied background, I like creatives who are strategic and increasingly commercial and client facing. Being a Global Creative Lead isn’t just about making beautiful work. It’s about building meaningful relationships with clients on a global scale, and creating content for them that really moves the needle.
