The 4A's is excited to celebrate the sixth anniversary of The Face of Talent, the industry's premier event to celebrate and engage top diverse talent, with you this August.

The Face of Talent was established in 2011 as a catalyst for agency leaders, and their clients, to demonstrate their commitment to two of the most important issues facing our industry—Talent and Diversity. The multi-day symposium, including the Diversity Leadership Luncheon, attracts over 750 advertising and marketing executives. This series of events is designed to celebrate and showcase over 140 talented diverse college seniors and graduates that comprise the 4A’s Multicultural Advertising Intern Program (MAIP) and 4A’s Foundation Scholars.


The Face of Talent also serves as a community-building platform to inspire and retain more than 2,800 MAIP alumni and nearly 400 4A’s Foundation Scholars, who continue to advocate and champion diversity in advertising.

Neal is currently the Managing Director of W+K NY.  As the Managing Director, he shares oversight of the office with his two Executive Creative Director partners.  Previously, he was the Director of Strategic Planning for W+K NY where he applied his range of experiences to develop new business opportunities and engage clients within the agency – a lot of that time was spent in the ESPN world, talking sports. Throughout his career he has developed strategic business insights for clients such as Lee Jeans, Holiday Inn, and guided innovative film initiatives for BMW and Amazon. Before coming to Wieden+Kennedy, Neal was a kindergarten teacher (a job remarkably similar to his current position), a Java developer at Netscape, and it's also worth noting that he attended law school, for one day.
