“I met Resh when I was a Mobile jury member at Cannes, and she immediately impressed me with her humanity, her critical thinking skills, and her generosity. She is an inspiring and engaged leader. She is also incredibly intuitive when it comes to the craft in all its forms and has an avant-garde vision of the role humans should play in the global brand experience. We’re very lucky she happily accepted our invitation to be with us in Montreal,” said Marilou Aubin, Partner and Executive Creative Director at lg2, who will host the discussion with Ms. Sidhu.
