Jeff Goodby from Goodby Silverstein & Partners San Francisco will be the international speaker at this year’s Caxton weekend.
Goodby Silverstein, became very topical earlier this year when the Commonwealth Bank of Australia went off-shore in the search for a new agency. They are also well known for campaigns such as HP, Saturn and ‘Got Milk’.
The Chairman of the Caxton Committee, Mr. Tom Moult was delighted by the announcement saying, “When it comes to creative profile, Jeff Goodby is a very big name. This is a real coup for the Caxton weekend.”
Goodby recently commanded standing room only when he spoke to an estimated 3,000 people at Cannes a few weeks ago.
The CEO of The Newspaper Works, Mr. Tony Hale added, “Jeff Goodby is incredibly newsworthy and the perfect choice for Caxton.”
Goodby will be the key note speaker amongst an impressive line-up to be announced shortly.
The weekend, to be held at Byron Bay on October 26, 27 & 28, is expected to be over subscribed. Booking forms for the weekend will be released on July 24, but people can register their interest via the website,
Entries for the Caxton Awards are currently open and will close on July 20.

12.27 & 6.17 - That's just a predictable cheap shot that I've come to expect from the CB bloggers.
Jeff Goodby is an extraordinary man and has achieved more goals than any of us could possibly dream of.
One of those is the ability to grow back hair up and over his shoulder.
