When Tom Harrison agreed to join me for this edition of Legends & Leadership, I knew it would be more than an engaging and important conversation. Tom is among the most wise and experienced leaders in marketing and is generous with his guidance on business and personal growth and success. His insights are relevant to everyone, from senior leaders to those considering advertising and media as a career.
Although Tom officially retired in 2013 as Chairman of the Diversified Agency Services Group of Omnicom, he remains Chairman Emeritus. His passion today is the rapidly expanding medicinal cannabis business and he shares how it will impact every major industry from pharma and cosmetics to construction and airlines. Tom joined Omnicom when his small pharmaceutical agency was acquired. He was quickly elevated to lead Omnicom's small Diversified Agency Services Group, which he expanded through more than 200 acquisitions to represent more than 50% of Omnicom revenues.
Learn about his story, his advice for success, and his insights on how private equity, imagination, attitude and cannabis are impacting the future of advertising. View Tom's story above.
