He strongly believes that advertising is much more than just a job. It’s a constant mission of finding the most interesting, innovative, meaningful trends in culture and technology and incorporating them into mass market communication. For Mariusz Pitura good advertising should be about giving entertainment and from time to time asking questions, which may encourage people to stop and think.
Mariusz Pitura is now Creative Group Head in Scholz&Friends Warsaw. Before S&F he used to work for the polish agency Walk. While he was Creative Director there, his agency was twice chosen the best independent agency and once the most innovative independent agency in Poland.

Olivia Walsh knew early on that she wanted to see the world. At the age of 16, thanks to a scholarship to pursue her studies in Argentina, she encountered Spanish as a language for the first time. Upon returning to her native San Francisco, another scholarship gave her the chance to study at the University of Seattle, where she studied International Studies with a focus on Marketing.
After a variety of professional experiences in the USA and a brief spell in production, she moved to Barcelona where she helped start the first English-speaking radio program produced in Barcelona.
In 1998, she joined the team of Cluster Consulting to lead their employer branding team. From there, she went on to Marketing to become the EULA manager of Branding.
