The Caxton Committee announced Kneebone's attendance at Caxtons 2012 today, completing an all-star line-up of international and local guest speakers set to inspire, intrigue and inform this year's delegates with their incredible storytelling.

Kneebone's reputation in the creative advertising community is such that he should not need any introduction, but in brief, he co-founded The Glue Society in 1998 with Gary Freedman and has since led it to become Australia's most awarded independent creative collective.

The Glue Society is one of the few companies in the world which balances art and commerce, as well as bringing together ideas and execution into the same creative space. In addition to the collective's advertising awards, including a Cannes Titanium Lion and two Grands Prix, The Glue Society recently received the major art prize at Denmark's Sculpture by the Sea festival.
This year, The Glue Society released Watch With Mother, a pioneering online horror sketch show the likes of which has never been produced - or even attempted - before.

The show is now available as an app on Google Play and as a series on iTunes.

Says Justin Drape, Caxton committee chairman: "The Glue Society have been pioneers in our industry so it's a real privilege to have Jonathan share his thoughts on creativity and storytelling at the seminar this year."
 
Delegates at the 2012 Caxtons will hear from international keynote speaker Jeff Goodby, founding partner of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Derek Robson, Goodby Silverstein managing partner, and Lee Clow, chairman and global director of TBWA\Worldwide, who will make a special 'virtual' appearance at the seminar in the first ever live streamed 'Creative Legend' session.
 
Australian speakers include Daily Telegraph journalists Joe Hildebrand (The Daily Telegraph) and Nick McKenzie (The Age, Four Corners), the managing director of Hopscotch Group and renowned movie executive Troy Lum, Commonwealth Bank chief marketing & online officer Andy Lark, PHD Media Australia strategy director Chris Stephenson and Special Group creative director and founding partner Tony Bradbourne.
 
The 2012 Caxton Seminar and Awards will be held from Friday to Sunday, October 12th to 14th, at Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays.
