A few months back, TrinityP3 Founder and Global CEO Darren Woolley observed on his podcast that most of the agencies he’d seen recently were not telling their story. Not that they weren’t telling their story effectively, but they weren’t telling a story at all. Often, they were just delivering a shopping list, ticking off the agency’s clients, offices, and capabilities. (Zzzzz.

This person’s dad was one of the early pioneers of US Latino marketing in this country and, among many colorful and memorable individuals, I will venture to say he was at the top of the list. This person’s dad was Pedro Font or Mr. Font to those who worked for him.

There is no doubt that 2020 will be the most important year of my life. Between the novel coronavirus, the U.S. Census, social justice and the presidential election, this year has made all of us, collectively, rethink what’s important for our families and in our communities. Perhaps for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color), 2020 has highlighted the importance of unity, empathy and community because, as diverse groups, we have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic, racism and divisive politics.  By Stacie M. de Armas, SVP of Diverse Consumer Insights and Initiatives, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Practice, Nielsen
