    David Jones is a businessman and advertising guru, most famous for his position as the former CEO of Havas and Havas Worldwide. He is also renowned for his commitment to corporate responsibility and social change and has been honoured Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. A fascinating public speaker, Jones talks eloquently and expertly on a wide range of topics, including advertising, brand development, and leadership.

    Born in 1966 in North West England, David Jones began his career within the advertising industry as an account executive at BDH Manchester (now TBWA). He then moved to Paris to join JWT before working for Lowe Europe. Upon his return to London, he was appointed the youngest board member of agency AMV BBDO.

    In 1998, Jones joined Havas (formerly known as EURO RSCG Worldwide) becoming the CEO of EURO RSCG Australia at the young age of 32. He was quickly promoted through the company, working as President of Global Brands and CEO of Euro RSCG New York. In 2005, he became the CEO of Euro RSCG Worldwide – making him the youngest global CEO in the history of the advertising industry.

    During his time at Havas, Jones was responsible for the various creative, media, marketing, and design companies encompassed throughout the group and has overseen a huge number of high-profile campaigns, including advising David Cameron and the UK Conservative Party from 2007 to 2010. Additionally, David was a founding member of the Facebook Client Council.

    A highly-respected expert within the advertising industry, Jones is the founder of the Social Business Idea, which focuses on social responsibility and driving social change. The theory is explained in his book, Who Cares Wins: Why Good Business is Better Business, which was published in 2011.

    He is also the founder of One Young World, a non-profit organisation which gives global leaders of 25 and under a voice. In addition, in 2009, David Jones was asked by former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan to create the TckTckTck Campaign for Climate Justice. The campaign won We Media’s Game Changer Award in 2010 and was also shortlisted for a Webby Award for World’s Best Advocacy Campaign.

    In 2015, David raised $350 MM and launched You & Mr Jones, the world’s first Brandtech group, with the goal to bridge the gap between brands and technology.
