TLDR – If you’re short on time and still want to hear some of the perspectives, life experiences, and practical advice from French Ad Agency Strategist and leader Christian Baujard then here are 7 minutes of his soundbites.

As my second Storyteller guest, his story intersects with mine back in the late 90s and early 2000s when we worked together in London at an Ad agency called EURO RSCG Wnek Gosper.
