The triple threat to creative effectiveness - Peter Field, Orlando Wood, Karen Nelson-Field (Live from Cannes)

I'm joined live at the Cannes Lions Festival by three effectiveness legends, Peter Field, Orlando Wood and Karen Nelson-Field, to find out the triple threat to creative effectiveness and what we can do about it.
For the 50th episode of Uncensored CMO, I'm live in Cannes to talk about the triple threat to creative effectiveness. Why effectiveness has been declining over the years, how attention has impacted mental availability and what we can do about it. Fresh off the stage at Cannes Lions 2022, Peter Field, Orlando Wood and Karen Nelson-Field talk us through what they're calling Triple Jeopardy.

From Peter Field himself: "Triple Jeopardy is three things: the withdrawal of money from brand and putting it into performance marketing and the short-term on a massive scale. That has drained the mental availability fuel supply, if you like"
