If a brand such as the State Street Global Advisors offers to pay for your Cannes festival trip, would you take it?

Can you give me more context for your question - is there a reason your agency won’t pay for your Cannes trip? Is State Street a client of yours? Are they offering to pay for your Cannes trip because they want you to do business for them at Cannes?

I mean, if they are to invite you for the upcoming event. With a condition that you can’t speak ill of them. It’s a free trip for you, would you do it?

Why on earth would I want a free trip to Cannes? 🙂 I have no business reason to attend Cannes these days. I only go to Cannes when someone pays to fly me in and to have me speak, and when I speak I say whatever the hell I want. (Clients who book me to speak are fully aware of that.)

If they are to invite Cindy Gallop as a guest to the festival, knowing Cindy won’t be paying for herself to go there without a speaking gig.

Or a new company having someone such as Travis Kalanick involved is to invite you.

This is a weird and baiting question, OP. What do you want from the answer? To gain something, or just to stir the pot?
