Because you Cannes, Cannes, Cannes.

My year in Syracuse, NY has been many things and leaving the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications behind will not be easy. Luckily, I have one part left to my master’s degree experience: A trip to Cannes, France for the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. Myself, along with a group of 8 students, will accompany Dr. Ward aka @Dr4Ward to this conference with leaders internationally in digital and social media. We’ll have the amazing opportunity to hear from speakers from Tumblr, Wikipedia, 360i, Adobe, LinkedIn, Facebook, and so many more.

In preparation for this trip, I put together a twitter list and we set up a class hashtag (#NewhouseIDSM). International Media has always been something of interest to me! As the world gets smaller and smaller with every tweet and Instagram photo, media companies operate differently everywhere and it’s important to not only consider the culture within which one operates but also evaluate strategies when your media impacts other countries.

All of this considered, I can’t wait to get to Syracuse Hancock International Airport yesterday and not only say goodbye to a year at a great school, but also hello to a valuable experience and exciting trip!

ALSO, you can’t possibly prepare for a whirlwind of media conference without knowing just how to order that important caffeine fix. According to about.com’s France travel planning: a Café Noisette (kuh-fay nwah-zett) is espresso with a dash of cream in it. It is called “noisette,” French for hazelnut, because of the rich, dark color of the coffee. So I’m looking forward to drinking a couple hundred of those too.

au revoir!
