Overheard at Cannes: Redknapp puts the boot into England

It takes a lot to impress The Drum’s editor Stephen Lepitak, even amidst the glamour of Cannes. But News UK did just that.

Lepitak’s moment of the week, he reveals, was aboard the publisher’s boat watching the England Vs Slovakia football game. Lepitak, a Scot, delighted in the draw, and of Harry Redknapp’s scathing review of the game.

He gives his after-hours lowdown at The Drum’s own party on Thursday night of the festival in Overheard at Cannes, our take, in partnership with The Trade Desk, on what happens beyond the Palais.

Also featured in this edition are Mark Iremonger, chief executive of iCrossing, who urges delegates to seek out “inspirational” Professor Adam Grant, and Pete Bastiman, associate creative director of VCCP whose own Cannes experiences left him feeling like a millionaire.
