Cream, the annual global showcase of the hottest young creatives, will be back bigger, better and crucially, more inclusive in 2018.

At The Talent Business, our determination to promote diversity and inclusion means that we have decided to take time out to rethink Cream to ensure it captures talent, not only from the world’s best colleges, but extends its support to those on less typical routes into the industry.

Finding brilliant talent, the lifeblood of agencies, continues to be one of the toughest challenges the industry faces, so our commitment to Cream remains undimmed, as does our commitment to diversity and inclusion.
