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.

GLOBAL chief CREATIVE Officer 

Susan Credle believes that tenacious strategic thinking expressed through great creative with scale is what really drives dynamic change for businesses and brands.

“When people ask you what you do for living, it’s much more fun to say, “well, have you seen (description of your work here)” than to answer advertising.”

Susan is a member of the Creative Review Board of the Ad Council and serves on the boards of The University of North Carolina’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication, The American Association of Advertising Agencies, The One Club, The VCU Brandcenter, The IAB, The Foundation for EXXcellence in Women’s Health Care, Marwen, Chicago Ideas Week and One Million Degrees.

The industry at large has recognized Susan’s contributions to the advertising world with honors including CAF’s Chicago Ad Woman of the Year in 2013, one of Advertising Age’s 100 Most Influential Women in Advertising, one of Business Insider’s Most Creative Women in Advertising, the 2014 Cannes Lion Jury President for Promo and Activation and inductions into the AAF’s Hall of Achievement and The North Carolina Advertising Hall of Fame.
